49 Sighs

Thursday-Saturday, 2-6pm

49 Sighs is an installation of 49 paintless paintings. Using the material language and rhythms of painting, these paintings-as- sighs draw on the interactions and metaphorical possibilities arising between reductive materials, form, process and body. In this series of paintings without paint, the Sighs substitute the absent human body for paint as body. Supported by a single stretching tack, canvas surfaces containing recycled domestic textiles hold not paint but the form of an exhalation (a sigh), sealed with beeswax.

Lisa Sharp is an artist, writer, curator and co-gallery manager living and working in Sydney. She holds degrees in Arts, Law (U. Syd & UTS) and Fine Arts (National Art School).

Committee Show 2017


Committee Show 2017

13 July – 5 August 2017
Thursday-Saturday, 2-6pm

Opening - Thursday 13 July, 6-8pm

This show celebrates the work of current committee members Harry Aizenberg, Jens Cheung, Pamela Leung, Anya Pesce and Lisa Sharp.

 is both a simple and complex term in contemporary art practice. Directly, it refers to the external, material properties of a work, but indirectly it also historically possesses layers of meaning in western painting. In non-objective practice, the focus is on the materiality of the work as a result of a reductive and minimalist approach to art making. The committee members of Factory 49 each address the concept of 'surface' in their individual practices, producing works which reflect each artist's unique interpretation of the concept.

Thursday-Saturday, 2-6pm

Opening - Thursday 13 July, 6-8pm

Barriers and driving forces guide a haptic encounter in Joe Wilson and Chanelle Collier’s fourth collaboration. Spatial and kinetic forms emphasise the authority of signs to instruct the position of persons or objects. The exhibition self-references its own event by taking on a quasi-theatrical tone and a parody of objects within and without the gallery space. Making use of the readymade in consideration of Painting, combined with automatic forms of labour, Momentum is an exhibition of new works that produce signals of position.
