The wet weather didn't deter a hard core group of art lovers from visiting .M Contemporary over the weekend.
Saturdays Artist Talk with Garth generated a great deal of questions about his process and the ideas behind his work. He spoke about how each series leads on from the previous one and how they are all connected to each other and to him in a very deep and personal way. Garth's practice is very much a journey and he certainly took us into his world in a very beautiful and generous way.
Sunday saw a change of pace with the gallery filled with the headiness of scent and perfume as Garth and Catherine du Peloux Menage took us on an olfactory journey through Paradise Lost. By engaging this often forgotten sense, guests experienced the works in an altogether new and delightedly unexpected way.
Added to the pleasure of the weekend was meeting a new Garth Knight collector. An image of the beautiful Elephant will shortly be installed in her home in Melbourne.
All in all a wonderful weekend and thank you to everyone who was a part of it!
