Spill is on view now until 7 July.
“The Melbourne artist builds on his enduring interest in natural phenomena by examining the suggestive ambiguities of water and the metamorphic effects of light. Developed from his large and ongoing archive of observational photography, Browne’s oil paintings are an ‘accumulation of glimpses’ knitting together fragments of landscape, light and form. He captures anthropomorphic lurkings and nuanced details in nature to conjure new realities.” – Artist Profile

Versus Rodin: bodies across space and time
ART GALLERY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA
Curated by Leigh Robb

Auguste Rodin was an artist who redefined the idea of the body in sculpture. Marking 100 years since his death in 1917, Rodin’s legacy is the wellspring of this major exhibition.
Through a series of duets and duels, Rodin’s work is brought into conversation with over 100 modern and contemporary works of art by Louise Bourgeois, Antony Gormley, William Kentridge, Bharti Kher, Rosemary Laing, Ugo Rondinone and Kara Walker among others.
