Contrarieties & Counterpoints
Contrarieties & Counterpoints: Recent Paintings by Melanie Authier is a touring solo exhibition curated by Robert Enright. Authier's abstract paintings present a brimming jostle of pictorial oppositions that draw upon an expansive archive of expressionist and hard-edge histories. This project foregrounds Authier's recent canvases as well as works on paper, and is accompanied by a bilingual catalogue that includes an interview with Robert Enright, and essays by Sky Goodden, Sarah Milroy and Ola Wlusek.
