Beyond Belief: the sublime in contemporary art includes 14 impressive works by 10 artists; Daniel Askill, Daniel Crooks, Michael Gallop, Sam Jinks, Christopher Langton, Ron Mueck, Adam Norton, Baden Pailthorpe, Patricia Piccinini and Ricky Swallow.
Curated by Bathurst Regional Art Gallery’s Director, Richard Perram OAM, Beyond Belief: the sublime in contemporary art promises to deliver an exhibition of works which inspire, surprise and awe, by some of the best known artists working in hyper realism, trompe l’oeil, scale and illogic.
Featuring 7 sculptures, 6 video based works and a three-dimensional painting, the works were sourced from public art museums and commercial galleries, as well as the artists and private collections.
“Each of the works will elicit a powerful emotional response in the viewer…the element of scale is central to all the works in Beyond Belief. There are works that are huge, life size and some that have been miniaturised which adds to our response of wonder.” says exhibition curator Richard Perram OAM.
