27 MARCH - 23 APRIL, SUBIACO. Official opening Thursday 30 March 6-8pm. In Talismanic, Reisch explores her ongoing interest in animistic abstraction attempting to draw parallels between the early image-makers of the Upper Paleolithic period and contemporary practice. Animism encompasses the belief that there is no separation between the material and spiritual and so the work, in many ways, centres on the potency of the materials and the manner in which they are distributed rather than on aesthetic and pictorial logic. This body of work builds on a conceptual thread that links humanity to ancient rituals and primal forms of expression, presenting new realms that are at times enigmatic, atemporal and indistinct.
