PASQUADA: Lines Of Abstraction

Naomi Crawford | 9-May-2016
Tapas Club & Miami Marketta present PASQUADA: Lines Of Abstraction, a mid-week visual arts event featuring South East Queensland creative Damien Pasquale. Delivering a vibrant collision of abstract expressionism and bold architectural concepts, Pasquale will draw you into a world where everyday objects inspire monochromic formations that appear to burst from the seams with exploding texture, vivid colour and iridescence. For ONE NIGHT only, we invite you to peruse the works of PASQUADA and meet with the artist himself, as Tapas Club serves up delicious food and drinks to the smooth tunes of DJ Freddy Fly Fingers.
Venue: Miami Marketta
Address: 23 Hillcrest Parade / Miami / Queensland / Australia
Date: Wednesday 18th May 2016
Time: 5pm - 9pm
Ticket: Free

'There is nothing tentative about the work of Damien Pasquale. Using rugged but controlled brush strokes, Pasquale explores gestural movement and architectural structures in his layered compositions. With a nod to luminaries Willem de Kooning, Jack Tworkov and particularly Franz Kline, his bold monochromatic paintings pay homage to the origins of abstract expressionism in that their essence is the spontaneous nature of their creation. These are works that celebrate the action painters of the past with their textural inconsistencies, brush movements and visible records of the artistic process, but also look towards contemporaries such as Pierre Soulages, whose mastery of black pigment is fundamental to his practice.' - Carrie MacCarthy of Cultural Flanerie.
