MAXIMUM minimal | Andrew Scollo
Address: 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne 3000
Time: Tuesday to Friday 11am-5pm, Saturday 12pm-4pm
Architects draw lines to describe real things. The line indicates the location and the extent of an object and often—albeit by symbolic representation—what that object is. In MAXIMUM minimal, the line performs a different function. Lines are liberated from materiality, with no particular beginning or end.
The paintings have no intended viewpoint and could be segmented into many small compositions. Many small phrases repeat, creating a dimension of time. The intention of the exhibition is meditative rather than narrative.
The line in Scollo’s MAXIMUM minimal provides a vehicle through which he explores the visible and invisible; the strong and weak forces of colour.
