George Howlett’s 2018 solo exhibition Terminal Lucidity presents new multimedia artworks incorporating painting, neon lighting and sculptural elements. Playing on the definition of “terminal lucidity”, his work reflects on moments of mental clarity artists experience when working alone in their studios. Humour is often a source of the dialogue in George’s work and installations.
Thanks to the generosity of sponsor Write Light Neon, George has been able to achieve a well-conceptualised body of work through custom designed lighting in combination with paint and colour. The effects are minimal and stunning. In contrast to the minimal painted works are a series of custom-made neon faces that form part of a collaborative project between Howlett and Write Light Neon.
To reinforce the ideas within his work George has created a purpose built space that truly has become the blank canvas of galleries. Through kind sponsorship from Dulux Australia and D+D Property Group, he has upgraded the existing floors and installed walls to better accommodate ambitious exhibitions. His install effort has set the scene to showcase future artists work in the newly opened Whitespace in Pakenham Street, Fremantle .
Opening at 6:30pm, 7th December 2018, guests are welcome to explore a visually bold, playful, colourful and all-encapsulating exhibition .
Exhibition continues through 21st December, 10am - 4pm daily.
