score for a mineral landscape

A unique collaboration between visual artist Allyson Reynolds and composer Heinz Riegler has just opened at the Caboolture Regional Art Gallery (4 Hasking Street, Caboolture). The installation called score for a mineral landscape combines two bodies of work; a 1.2 x 15 meter painting by Reynolds and a thirty-two minute, six channel audio composition by Riegler.

Installed in a darkened, black-walled gallery space, with dimmed light focused exclusively on the painting, this context brings initial focus upon Riegler’s score and then gradually, as one’s eyes adapt throughout the duration of the composition, the fine details of Reynolds’ painting are revealed.

While each body of work highlights their individual talents, the triumph of this installation is measured by the way in which these works successfully fuse within the space; the sensory vitality of each work is reflected within in the other, creating a unique and moving confluence. score for a mineral landscape coincides with The Imperceptible Something… an exhibition of contemporary painting, sculpture and photographs by Lincoln Austin, ErynMark Begley, Leonard Brown, Julie Fragar, Stephen Hart, Henri van Noordenburg and Savanhdary Vongpoothorn. Both exhibitions continues until 10 August 2013.
