Assembled draws together works from The Holmes à Court Collection by significant contemporary Australian artists from the last three decades. The selected works are each comprised of multiple parts, and span a variety of media including painting and found objects.

Since the late 1970’s Australian Art practice has examined and reflected on identity politics and the transitory worlds we occupy. Not surprisingly then, many of the works in Assembled are linked by the formal device of employing multiples or components, providing an analogy for the ever changing and fragmentary environment of recent years.  Featuring nationally renowned artists such as Immants Tillers (currently showing at the National Gallery of Australia), Karl Wiebke and Rosalie Gascoigne, this exhibition highlights some of the more unconventional and sometimes challenging works from The Holmes à Court Collection. 

Many of the works in Assembled deal with concepts of landscape and identity.  Rosalie Gascoigne’s constructions reflect the colour and texture of the Australian outback. Imants Tillers canvas boards are part of an ongoing investigation into Australian identity and landscape. as Chinese Australian artist Lindy Lee and local Nyoongar artist Christopher Pease explore the private and sometimes dislocated, personal spaces of identity.  Other artists play with notions of what constitutes a painting.  Works by Karl Wiebke challenge the boundaries of the painting genre by employing a sculptural approach. Peter Sharp’s work incorporates sculpture and painting while Susan Cohn crosses between image making and craft.

This exhibition also includes works by Andrew Leslie and Douglas Sheerer.
