Recent Prints and Monoprints Exhibition at Tuggeranong Arts Centre
In the series of recent paintings and monoprints, Jeremy Barrett continues a lifelong exploration abstraction. He says “I would describe my work as essentially exploratory and improvisatory. The primary aim is to arrive at a convincing resolution of formal elements which contribute to the making of a piece of art.”
“For me this means the final work must be independent of, not reliant on, verbal explanation, reference to socio-economic issues or other obvious visual associations with reality as we comprehend and experience it. I want any piece of my work simply to exist as an autonomous statement in visual language. I prefer a viewer to make their own interpretation, or to find their own associations in a piece of my work.""
