An exhibition of paintings presented by Graham Blondel.

Graham Blondel’s paintings are abstract expressions of his inner thoughts in response to these difficult times of pandemics, lockdowns, conflict and uncertainty. However, through his passion for colour and pattern, he hopes to project an optimism that conveys a zest for life and wonder.

Several symbolic motifs dominate his works, such as dogs, rabbits, houses and portraits, both in profile and face on. They often overlay each other making interesting probabilities and possibilities for the viewer.

Improvised patterns using stencils adds to creating complex levels of meanings. There are many similarities in the paintings to the art and practice of street artists.

This exhibition is a follow on from the exhibition, MindScapes, at the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery in April/May 2022.
