Moral Ambiguities, A Major Solo Exhibition


Moral Ambiguities Tony Stewart

Huw Davies Gallery, Manuka Arts Centre, Canberra, 27 October — 13 November, 2011

Introduction

Moral Ambiguities in 2011 was a major exhibition because it was a compilation of artworks that had been tentatively shown elsewhere in smaller size. It was the first time that the majority of works from this period had been shown together in one venue and at full size.

The exhibition highlighted two major streams of work that I had been working on since 2006. Continue reading “Moral Ambiguities 2011: A Major Solo Exhibition”

X Gallery, 32 Gibraltar Street, Bungendore NSW, 22 February to 22 April, 2007


Introduction

On suggestions by friends and mentors, I decided to revisit the Tag Exhibition with a smaller version in a different location. This was also a first for me in moving a major exhibition into what could in effect be called a smaller travelling exhibition, except only to one place and not that far.

Introduction

Following the success of my two opening exhibitions Use By and Transit in 2002, I set out to create a body of work in a new direction, but building on the inspiration that I began with.

One driving idea behind the making of work during this period was the idea of SIMPLICITY that is focusing down and trying to create meaningful work with few elements.

The other idea, which actually took up much more time, was the honing of skills learned and technique, that is, getting much better at the photomedia methods that I had been learning on the computer, and attempting to produce a more polished product through practice.

Transit Invitation, 2002
Transit Invitation, 2002

Introduction

Transit came about because in applying for Use By, I also ended up with a spot in Canberra Contemporary Art Space’s facility in Manuka later in the year. This put me under pressure but also forced me to expand on the ideas generated by Use By. It also forced me to attempt to improve on the techniques and also the execution of my preliminary foray into art. And, although it was a satisfying experience, it was also exhausting.

I began looking for an icon that represented the late twentieth century and part of my lifetime. I’d been thinking of computer chips and boards and vaguely thought of making art.
