Exhibition Dates: 14 August – 25 September 2021
The works in The Surface Of Things are drawn from Liam Fallon’s last three years of experimentation with painting exclusively from life. They traverse Tasmania and Canberra, from studio environments to the suburbs and into nature. The exhibition also encompasses the work that Liam produced during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic when he, like many others, was suddenly restricted in how often and for how long he could leave his home and local area. This introspective experience, of spending more time with fewer people and in fewer locations, aligned fortuitously with his direction as he was forced to look to his immediate surrounding for inspiration. He quickly realised that no matter where he was, the more he looked the more there was to be seen.
