Event Details

Schoenheimer’s whimsical use of found objects and pieces of brightly coloured timber toys spark familiarity and joy. Seductive colour schemes tie her complex works together and are fundamental to both a delicious viewing experience and the creation of meaning.

In this exhibition we see a colourful collision of Schoenheimer’s sculpture and painting practices in a series of works known as the ‘Constructions’. Each work in the series comprises a painted triptych exhibited alongside an abstract sculpture. Faithfully reproduced as a realist painting, each abstract sculpture is then re-interpreted in two other, painted elaborations.

Through the genre of still-life painting, Schoenheimer poses questions about what it is ‘to make pictures’, mining a broad span of stylistic references throughout her work. The art historical journey on which Schoenheimer takes us spans one hundred years, multiple generations of artists, and fundamental shifts in philosophy yet, in layman’s terms provides a humorous and lively visual journey, the enjoyment of which requires little explanation. Schoenheimer’s whimsical use of found objects and pieces of brightly coloured timber toys spark familiarity and joy. Seductive colour harmonies tie her complex works together and are fundamental to providing both a delicious viewing experience and the creation of meaning in Iterate|Elaborate.

Open Friday 10am – 2pm and 6pm – 9pm, Saturday 1pm – 4pm and 6pm – 9pm, and Sunday 1pm to 4pm

Additional Information

Leigh Schoenheimer is a multi-disciplinary, contemporary artist and former long-term art educator based in Brisbane, Australia. A painter and sculptor/object maker, her work investigates notions of perception and meaning. Informed by a desire to demonstrate the alternative logic of abstract and conceptual approaches to a wider audience, Schoenheimer’s colourful and often whimsical work references the imagery and styles of the many 20th century artists who re-wrote the rulebook on image making.
