Trevelyan Clay: For The Shadows Fall
For the Shadows Fall takes the tradition of hard-edged abstraction as its starting point, presenting a series of paintings that arrange colour into rows stacked in pictorial space. Through the considered juxtaposition of these colours a spatial illusion of depth and shadow is manufactured.

Clay creates a casual tension between flatness and depth in paintings that point to video-game graphic glitches and computer generated imagery. Despite this synthetic effect, the traces of the hand are on show; thick paint retains and exaggerates the coarseness of the bristles used to apply it.
Trevelyan Clay recently completed a Gertrude Contemporary Studio Residency and his work is held in numerous national and international collections. For the Shadows Fall will be the first West Australian exhibition of work by the Melbourne based artist who has exhibited extensively in Australia and internationally since 2004.
Clay is represented by Neon Parc in Melbourne.
