The Space Between Here and There is Australian artist Julian Meagher’s first solo exhibition with Yavuz Gallery.
Meagher’s new series is unashamedly Romantic—it seeks to chase, and then pin down, moments of beauty in the landscape. But Meagher is also reconfiguring the features of traditional landscape painting. That is, rather than presenting a realistic scene or pastoral view, Meagher instead pares back and removes detail. The result is a series of works full of minimal marks and compressed gestures: these are brushstrokes that intimate or imply scenes, rather than providing them in their entirety. Depicting the east coast of New South Wales and Tasmania in Australia, Meagher’s works sit resolutely in the in-between: they are abstract and realistic; they are landscapes as well as portraits; they are urgent in their desire to catch a single instant, but also imbued with a sense of stillness and calm.
