Everything Takes Time...

10 June–22 July 200610 Jun–22 Jul 2006

Brisbane artist Eugene Carchesio has been showing his constructions, collages and watercolours since the early 1980s. In an age of brash biennale art, his work is usually distinguished by its modesty of scale and material, its intimacy and ephemerality. Seeking to express the spiritual interconnectedness of all things, Carchesio combines iconographies drawn from early modernist abstraction and other faiths to ponder our relation to nature and the cosmos. His new project Everything Takes Time / Time Takes Everything combines a geometric-pattern wall painting, an ambient electronic soundtrack, and ‘the space between’.

The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
