Snakes and Ladders: Recent Paintings by Harlan Johnson, Alex Livingston, Leslie Sasaki
Vigorous brushwork, saturated colour and biomorphic imagery characterized this exhibition of 28 figurative paintings by Harlan Johnson, Alex Livingstone and Leslie Sasaki, all of whom have strong connections to this region. Their individual approaches to the problem of reinvesting painting with"content" drive partly from personal biography and partly from literature, both fiction and non-fiction, relating to culture, myth and natural history. All three artists employ allegorical, metaphoric and emblematic devices and an eclectic range of images.
