The Baker’s Dozen celebrated new directions in geometric abstraction and spatial relationships by some of Australia’s most dynamic artists. Through confident and colourful works, considerations of movements such as Neo Geo and Formalism give way to underlying intuitive processes and the pleasure of artmaking.
Drawing on the domestic vernacular for the arrangement of the works, curator Lorna Grear created an inviting space for exploring ideas of social, political and cultural exchange embedded within the works.
Featuring painting, collage, sculpture and installation by twelve established and emerging artists—with one more thrown in for good measure—The Baker’s Dozen included work by Vivienne Binns, Bonita Bub, Debra Dawes, Lynne Eastaway, Lesley Giovanelli, Elizabeth Gower, Lorna Grear, Lisa Jones, Elizabeth Pulie, Nike Savvas, Gemma Smith, Kerry Smith and Samantha Whittingham.
