Surface Paradise

March 4 – April 1, 2023

Surface Paradise is a body of work, by local artist Michael Donnelly, exploring expanded painting and its relationship to architecture, when structure and form are released from their roles as purveyors of purpose. Immersive landscapes reminiscent of buildings with post-human intent, ambiguous in their meaning, reveal the inconsequential future of a world devoid of subjectivity. The facade of the surface falls away to expose the horror of infinite possibilities, unknowable and unquantifiable, leaving each of us a singular glimpse of a pulverising eternity .
