Reuben Paterson
Meinongs's Jungle
29 January - 23 February 2013
2013-01-29 - 2013-02-23
Deep in the metaphorical jungle at the centre of this exhibition a three-dimensional, hand-made clay orchid glitters serenely, impervious to any threat from the life-size carnivorous creatures that gaze upon it. This immediate juxtaposition of beauty and danger captures the polarities that have long characterised Paterson's work. Well-known for his distinctive glitter paintings, Paterson has seduced, teased and provoked. In his paintings, glitter has entered the galleries of the world with its own complex set of connotations overlying an active, albeit more subtle, engagement with the politics of race, history, gender and sexuality.
