PESKY | Lost in Time

Lost in Time delves into themes of femininity, objectification, aging, and death by
challenging the notion of women as consumable objects and decorative pieces.
Through a combination of doll heads encased in glass domes and large
photographic portraits displayed on the gallery walls, the narrative unfolds to explore
the cycles of life, mortality, resilience, and transformation.

The artworks in the exhibition serve as a poignant commentary on the relentless
passage of time and the disposable nature of contemporary society. Once treasured
items, now forgotten and discarded, such as vintage cake stands, porcelain dolls,
and pearls sourced from thrift stores, are given new life as they are repurposed and
arranged into symbols of resilience and wisdom.

Exhibition dates April 16th – 24th, 2024

Artist Statement:

“I am fortunate that I thrive on solitude, peace and silence. My studio is my quiet place where I get lost in my art work. My abstract landscapes are inspired by locations that I have visited and moments in time I have experienced. The sunrises and weather that I closely observe from level 5, Epworth Geelong during regular stays for pain management are a constant source of inspiration as is the surrounding landscape of the Grampians region where I live.

Art lets me enter an inner world that’s beyond words, this is my sanctuary.”

Artist Statement:

“My immediate surroundings, the local environment and especially parklands and reserves where I walk every day is the inspiration for my work.

Sue Cooke | Deep Time

The concept of Deep Time refers to the time scale of geological events. Almost unimaginably greater than the time scale of human lives and history. It is one of geologies great gifts to the worlds set of important ideas.  The Pilbara and Kimberley regions in North Western Australia embody the concept of Deep Time with ancient geological land forms shaped through, rain, wind, volcanic activity and more recently an arid climate exposing the many geological formations. The Pilbara has been declared the oldest place on earth at an estimated 3.6 billion years old. Kimberley as a region has been shaped by rifting and plate collision, comprised mostly of sandstone and limestone. It is one of the hottest and driest regions of Australia .

As an Australian living in New Zealand it has been a pleasure to explore these regions and dig deep into my formative knowledge of the Australian landscape to create this exhibition of mini prints. I have endeavored to encapsulate the ruggedness, expanse, heat, colours and textures of these ancient landforms.

I respectfully acknowledge the many Traditional Custodians of the land in the Kimberley and Pilbara regions and the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation whose land PG Gallery lives on and pay respect to their Elders, past, present and future.

Exhibition Dates: July 4th – 15th

CONTEMPLATING AUSTRALIA | Collectable prints of the 20th Century

Contemplating Australia celebrates printmaking by significant Australian artists of the 20 th century.
This exhibition focuses on mid-century figurative artists associated with The Antipodeans movement and artists who were deeply engaged with the Australian landscape.

The Antipodeans movement emerged in the late 1940s and early 1950s as a response to the dominance of abstract expressionism in the art world. The group, which included artists such as Arthur Boyd, Charles Blackman, and Robert Dickerson, sought to revive figurative art and explore the human form as a subject. Printmaking was an essential medium for many of these artists, allowing them to create multiple copies of their works and reach a broader audience. The exhibition showcases their prints, offering visitors a glimpse into their artistic vision and technical mastery.

In addition to the Antipodeans, the exhibition also highlights artists who were deeply engaged with the Australian landscape. These artists, such as John Olsen, Clem Millward and Indigenous painter Jarinyanu David Downs, drew inspiration from the unique and diverse Australian environment. Through their prints, they captured the vastness, beauty, and cultural significance of the Australian landscape, showcasing its rugged terrains, distinctive flora and fauna, and the deep connection between the land and its people.

Contemplating Australia celebrates the artistic achievements of these significant artists and offers viewers an opportunity to reflect on Australia’s cultural heritage and the profound influence of the country’s natural surroundings on its artistic expression.

EXHIBITION DATES: June 6th – 17th

OPENING EVENT: June 8th, 5:30 – 7:30pm

KATI THAMO | ‘Listening for the Call’

This exhibition of prints draws on the intrigue that birds hold for us.
The works range from migratory waders which cross the hemispheres to those living close beside us, and yet others whose calls we hear but only glimpse in the undergrowth.
Their songs and calls are often the background soundtrack to our lives – whether on the coast or further inland, from bush to forests or in our parks and backyards.
The birdcalls we hear signify a sense of place, but some birds are now so endangered that we listen for their calls in vain. In my images I try to capture a sense of poetry in these fleeting encounters.


EXHIBITION DATES: May 2nd – 13th

PETA WEST | ‘To be a Wanderer’

Living on the South Coast of New South Wales, printmaker Peta West draws inspiration from the surrounding coast and bushland, specifically that of Lake Conjola. A place where the lake opens to the ocean, where stoic banksias and gum trees hug the shoreline and where the peak of Didthul (Pigeon House Mountain) silhouettes the western skyline. To walk through this area, the energy of the bush is tangible. Despite the realism with which West portrays her subjects, it is rather her ability to capture an experience of sublimity that is most affecting in her work: a feeling of complete immersion within a living ecosystem.
