Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery
Chris Dolman, 'Falling from a broken ladder'
Galerie pompom, Sydney
20 March - 14 April 2019
Opening Wednesday 20 March, 6-8pm
'Falling from a Broken Ladder' is mostly inspired by the artist’s recent employment as a gallery installer. The exhibition touches on the idea of labour, both the labour of making (painting/sculpting) a body of work, and also the labour of preparing (sanding/painting/measuring) a gallery space for an exhibition.
Self-referential and self-deprecating, the paintings and objects in the show look not to the perfection of such pursuits, but instead to the various mishaps, accidents and mistakes that can easily befall those who attempt such folly.
