7 – 21 December @ Whitespace,  Fremantle ·
Presented by George Howlett ·

George Howlett’s 2018 solo exhibition Terminal Lucidity presents
new multi media artworks incorporating painting, neon lighting and
sculptural elements. Playing on the definition of Terminal Lucidity,
his work reflects on moments of mental clarity artists experience
when working alone in their studios. Humour is often a source of the
dialogue in George’s work and installations.

Thanks to the generosity of sponsor Write Light Neon, George has been
able to achieve a well-conceptualised body of work through custom-designed
lighting in combination with paint and colour. The effects are minimal
and stunning. In contrast to the minimal painted works are a series of
custom-made neon faces that form part of a collaborative project between
Howlett and Write Light Neon.

To reinforce the ideas within his work George has created a purpose-built
space that truly has become the blank canvas of galleries. Through kind
sponsorship from Dulux Australia and D+D Property Group, he has upgraded
the existing floors and installed walls to better accommodate ambitious
exhibitions. His install effort has set the scene to showcase future artists
work in the newly opened Whitespace in Pakenham Street, Fremantle. Opening
on the 7th December 2018, guests are welcome to explore a visually bold,
playful, colourful and all encapsulating exhibition.

Opening night 7 December 6:30pm-9:30pm
Exhibition runs until 4 pm 21 December
Gallery will be open daily 10am-4pm throughout the duration of the exhibition
