OPENING: Friday, 17 March 2017, 4:30 - 5:30pm
VENUE: Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Bond Store Basement

Full Void is an exhibition of large-scale charcoal drawings by Mary Scott and David Edgar. Responding to the rich textural qualities of charcoal, the works explore darkness and the void in relation to a series of abstract architectural and geological spaces. In contrast to the traditional concept of the void as an empty or vacuous space, Scott and Edgar engage charcoal as a medium that gives dimensionality to blackness and explore the visual and psychological weight particular to ‘blackness’ ‘darkness’ and ‘shadow’.
