The Calculation (Flux) curated by Brenda Colahan

24 April – 18 May 2024

A major exhibition by notable Australian artist Laura Matthews. Matthews’s ethereal works evoke a perpetual motion reminiscent of our fragile relationship with the natural world.

A Gallery Lane Cove Guest Curator Program exhibition.

“There’s always the potential for huge success or huge failure in any point of your life, which is what this exhibition is about – the tree roots of paths you could follow in your life could hinge on a very small decision (a calculation, if you will) and often, they’re impulses. Impulses that could very well change the course of our lives make everything so incredibly stressful – but also, extremely rewarding and joyous.” Laura Matthews

Opening Event:

Wednesday, 1 May, 6-8 pm

Join Gallery Lane Cove for the opening event, meet the artists and enjoy some refreshments.
