'A Deep Rumble'
The New Standard Gallery is proud to present an exciting body of work in Neil Tomkin's debut solo exhibition 'A Deep Rumble'
Neil Tomkins is an Australian painter who draws inspiration from his travels, soaking up foreign landscapes and translating them to canvas through a distinctly Australian eye. 'A Deep Rumble' is the product of extensive travels through South America.
This body of work explores the internal mechanisms of new experience, joyfully delving into a deep pulse existing within the landscape, under the earth and through the waters. A two-year effort has culminated in the expression of an ever-shifting surrounding environment, exploring a sculptural perception of trees, rocks, roads, and streams. It is a connection to soil through pigment, to self through gesture.
'Through Landscape painting, I explore ideas of spirituality, physical and emotional displacement, and shamanism.'
With a ritualistic approach to painting offset by frantic impulses of gesture, A Deep Rumble encapsulates a dynamic reinvention of the traditions within landscape painting .
The New Standard Gallery & Neil Tomkins are proudly supported & sponsored by Young Henry's, De Salis Wines & Alfies Kitchen
