SOCA Art Forum: Samara Adamson-Pinczewski

In her Art Forum presentation, Samara Adamson-Pinczewski will discuss her practice, in particular ideas concerning reflection and spatial deformation in contemporary abstract painting practice. She will outline her research interests and examine how recent works have been designed to engage and modulate the viewer’s perception of illusory space. Through meticulously combining colour, line and form, her goal is to create highly unsettling paintings that are designed to elicit a perceptual and physiological response from the viewer. DATE: Friday 21 September 2018 // TIME: 12.30am // LOCATION: Dechaineux Lecture Theatre, School of Creative Arts, University of Tasmania, Hunter Street, Hobart //A FREE EVENT
