Bricolage

27 March – 28 April 2017
Adelaide Central Gallery

Matt Arbuckle and Peter Atkins

A bricolage is a new creation, assembled from what is to hand at the time of making.

This exhibition brings together drawing and painting works by contemporary artists Peter Atkins and Matt Arbuckle, each renowned for repurposing found materials to create original artworks.

These artists are observers and collectors, who use narrative-laden materials to tell fresh stories.

Bricolage presents new works by Matt Arbuckle and works by Peter Atkins never before exhibited in South Australia.

Read the Media Release, which includes information about the artists.
