Ramp Gallery | Delirium Crossing, Barbara Tuck

When the Water Came 2011

Come join us to celebrate the opening of our new Ramp Gallery exhibition Delirium Crossing by artist Barbara Tuck.

Opening night: Thursday 19 May 2022 at 5.30pm
Exhibition open: Thursday 19 May to Friday 17 June 2022

Below is an extract from the book that accompanies this exquisite painting exhibition:   

"Born in the Waikato in 1943, Barbara Tuck’s painterly expedition of five decades has been characterised by restlessness. Her engagement with painting has been driven by travel and wide-ranging reading across art, philosophy, poetry and science. Over the years, she has traversed many forms of expression, format and support, and confronted a range of issues and problems, happily confounding normative definitions of abstraction and representation.”

Books will be available for sale at the exhibition opening via Eftpos.

This exhibition is in collaboration with Anna Miles Gallery and Adam Art Gallery, Victoria University.
