Pushed Away by Kasper Raglus

Life Within unites the works of Mark Alsweiler (NZ), Sandra Eterovic and Kasper Raglus in rumination on life's little details. Inspired by objects, daily rituals and observations Life Within creates an opportunity to explore what drives individual philosophies, identities and the meaning of it all through the diverse and lasting medium of paint.

Seen through the lens of each artist's practice viewers are encouraged to consider art's interpretation of life and in turn the role it plays creating those meanings. Kasper's paintings solicit momentary suspension from the real, at times resembling doorways or entry points to dimensions beyond the third. His highly textured plains of abstract forms resemble prism-filtered rays of light. This reference to light is able to subtly convey the passage of time as well as its interruption.
