The latest exhibition from Springwood artist Tim Newman asks the big questions. His art explores some philosophical questions and social justice issues both large and small. He challenges the responsibilities of society and the individual.
Examples of art works on show include: Ticking Reef – will Queensland’s Barrier Reef be tomorrow’s Tasmanian Tiger (pictured)? Are We Random considers the mystery of our existence. Is it devised or the result of a big bang?
Shadow Creep references the effects of "climate change blindness" creeping over our word like a dark shadow. The Dry Viking explores family dynamics and personality differences impacting on the use of power in the nuclear family.
The artworks include paintings, collage works and moving sculptures.
As with all art, it is up to the viewer to take from the works what you will.
The questions are numerous and large, the answers, few and small.
At Braemar Gallery, 104 Macquarie Rd, Springwood from March 21 – April 14. Official opening Saturday, March 23 at 2pm. Thursdays to Sundays 10am-4pm.
