Artis Gallery presents an exhibition featuring the work of renowned artists John Blackburn & Peter Panyoczki.

The exhibition, 'Two Modernists', opens on Tuesday 22 February at Artis Gallery, Parnell.

John Blackburn is recognized as an abstract painter of originality and vision. The prevailing mood of Blackburn’s work is investigative: his primary concern is the human condition, which he seeks to explore through the interaction of memory, thought and emotion.

Blackburn’s paintings are made up of overlapping layers – each embedded with their own meaning, their own feeling. These contrasting layers interact with, reflect and counter each other, creating an (at times discordant) euphony of colour, texture and form.

Peter Panyoczki is a highly regarded mixed media artist, working in a hybrid of forms and mediums including painting, sculpture, installation, photography and digital technology.

Panyoczki’s work expresses the paradox of communication that refuses to reveal itself by providing information of what it is made of. A common feature in Peter’s works is the presence of texture, be it actual surface texture or the representation thereof.

The textured surfaces are evocative, forming notions of one’s past and inner self, or that which has been buried and forgotten.
