just when i thought i was out, they pull me back in

Feb 25 – Mar 6, 2021

just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in attempts to understand perpetual narratives portrayed from the outset of the historical Australian Impressionist landscape painting genre. Adopting, appropriating and redrawing ideas and imagery of the past, Sherington employs methodologies of enactment and complicity to leverage historical ideas toward critique and subversion. The picturesque Euro-Australian landscape becomes a constructed and fabricated space and iconic nationalised imagery is utilised to better understand a narcissistic engagement with history. Images throughout this show are often referential to each other, iterative in nature, reconfigured premises and contextualised by works from the past.
