Helga Groves at the Macquarie University Art Gallery

Helga Groves’ painting Colours of the Arctic Fells (2003) is currently on view at the Macquarie University Art Gallery, featured in the collection group exhibition Australian Abstraction in Context.

Curated by Rhonda Davis and Kon Gouriotis, Australian Abstraction in Context reflects upon the legacies of the varietal imports, indices and counterparts of abstraction. The exhibition highlights Australia-based artists’ practices that challenge the aesthetic orthodoxies of abstraction, particularly the idea of shape as content, while revealing new ways of thinking and talking about Australian abstraction.
