Conscious Process draws together a diverse group of contemporary Australian artists whose approach to making their work is almost an artwork in itself. From building an entire set to create the perfect photograph, to manipulating screen-printing processes, this exhibition draws on artworks recently welcomed to the Artbank collection from artists employing a wide range of media. Investigating artists working with an immersive studio practice, labour intensive post-production techniques and those fleshing out their ideas on the canvas, Conscious Process showcases artworks where the final product is a manifestation of a deliberate engagement with creation.
Marion Borgelt, Sarah Contos, Lucas Davidson, Damian Dillon, James Lieutenant, Kevin Meagher, Oscar Perry, Tom Polo, David Rosetzky, Lisa Sammut, Darren Sylvester and the collaborative of Yarrenyty Arltere artists – Trudy Inkamala, Dulcie Raggett, Marlene Rubuntja, Dulcie Sharpe and Rhonda Sharpe.
