A shifted glance
1 October - 30 October 2021

This October Artereal Gallery is thrilled to present A shifted glance, a new series of ink on paper works by Sydney based artist Sam Holt.

Daring to hold the dancing squiggle in front of us, playfully we follow the bobbing and darting of its possibilities. Escaping from our present juggled lives, we are refreshingly interrupted, now singularly focused in a vacuum of private inquisitiveness.

Child-like, consumed with your eye floaters (myodesopsia) you fleetingly try to keep them for a longer moment.

A shifted glance follows this curiosity of the moment, full of chance and movement. The gestural ink landscapes are derived from our unique lines of internal monologues/private narratives that oscillate constantly between our internal and external landscapes.
