Mary Lou Pavlovic's work has the sense of a deep lingering violence, often made presentable or palatable by slick, beautiful surfaces. Issues of taste and acceptability predominate.
After graduating from art school in Melbourne in 1972 Paul Boston travelled around the world for a number of years and developed an ongoing interest in Zen philosophy.
His abstract forms and patterns are built up from rich layers of colours. Ochres placed alongside blues and greys exude a strength and calmness born of Boston's meditation on the question of 'being'.
The works are described as combining the contemplative and the active; "they seem still and at the same time highly energised.
Viewers often observe that a work never stops moving, folding and unfolding."
His abstract paintings and drawings feature in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of New South Wales and in private overseas collections. Paul lives and works in Melbourne.
