Clive Murray-White and Michelle Caithness in The Reciprocal Eye at Warrnambool Art Gallery

— Sunday 16th June 2024

Murray White and Caithness Warrnambool 2024
Clive Murray-White and Michelle Caithness: The Reciprocal Eye pays homage to a rich heritage of traditional Western art practices through a dialogue between the two artists, running from 5 April to 16 June 2024.

Clive Murray-White and Michelle Caithness: The Reciprocal Eye, pays homage to a rich heritage of traditional Western art practices, demonstrating a deep respect for materials and an intimate connection with the act of creation. Focusing on a dialogue between the two artists, the exhibition shows the transformative impact of mark-making across mediums and explores the intimacy of collaboration.

Murray-White’s works often uncover forms seemingly hidden within the raw material of stone. Drawing upon the Italian style of Non-Finito, a technique of leaving part of the sculpture in its raw state, they are filled with tension between the recognisable and the primordial timelessness of the stone. Caithness’ works on paper and canvas explore the emergence of forms through the manipulation of texture, light and colour, uncovering dialogues that integrate memories and cyclic experiences. The works on display are shared impressions that resonate with intellectual curiosity to explore the depths of human experience.

Clive Murray-White and Michelle Caithness: The Reciprocal Eye continues the Warrnambool Art Gallery’s commitment to profiling the work of important regional artists.
