Homecoming: Chris Stevenson and Teong Eng Tan
9 December − 15 January 2016
Opening Wednesday 9 December
Homecoming explores the concept of place in relation to personal histories and memory. Chris Stevenson and Teong Eng Tan spent an important part of their working lives at Macquarie University which had a lasting effect upon their practices as visual artists. Both artistsimmerse the focus of their individual practices upon the beguiling tactile, sensuousness of visual and physical painted surfaces. Stevenson explores the figurative whilst Tan engages the abstract. Presented together, the viewer is swept upon a dramatic aesthetic journey that encapsulates this sense of homecoming.
