Sydney and Melbourne galleries feature work by Asher Bilu
November 8th, 2007
Two Australian galleries in Melbourne and Sydney will feature the work of Israeli-born artist, Asher Bilu, in November this year.
Curated by Joanna Bosse, ‘Earthly Reflections of Heavenly Things’ exhibits from 7 November 2007 to 17 February 2008 at the Ian Potter Museum of Art at the University of Melbourne.
Bilu is joined by artists Leonard Brown and Emily Kame Kngwarreye, all of whose art is motivated by mystical and abstract matters.
Opening on 10 November 2007 at Sydney’s Wilson Street Gallery, ‘In-Visible’ is dominated by immense meteoric shapes, which sprang from Bilu’s ongoing fascination with light and cosmology.
Despite the variety of mediums the artist works with – including painting, sculpture and installation – he claims all pieces are united by the common language of abstraction. “Call it sculpture, or call it painting,” he says, “my aim is to create visual ecstasies.”
