YVONNE BOAG | HERE AND THERE 

27 AUGUST - 18 SEPTEMBER

 

The Nancy Sever Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition YVONNE BOAG | HERE AND THERE.  

Yvonne Boag is an artist with an impressive exhibition record in Australia, Europe, South Korea and Japan. She has held many artist-in-residencies and is represented in major public and private collections in Australia and overseas. She regularly exhibits in group and solo shows. She was the first Asialink artist in residence in South Korea and has taught at several South Korean universities. She has formed links with many South Korean artists and educators and has been a consultant to various Australian tertiary institutions, including the Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney. She currently holds an Adjunct Associate Professorship at Sydney College of the Arts. She lives between Sydney and Seoul.  

Cityscapes have provided Yvonne with the necessary architectural and geometrical structure to create images of permanence and durability in which she has extracted and drawn meaningful relationships amongst inanimate objects. By skillfully simplifying and synthesising the forms that she has observed she has created a highly personal vocabulary of abstraction based upon symbolism and expressed with acute aesthetic sensibility.  

Yvonne Boag’s paintings and drawings are a mixture of impressions of and strong affection for the places she visits. Through the powerful use of colour and line she resolves and integrates her experiences when she embraces a new community. The resultant abstract works mark the transition from a heady encounter with the new to a quietly confident understanding of its structure and nuances  -  a transition from complexity to simplicity.  

The art critic and writer Dr. Jae-Ryung Roe noted: “The trappings of the school of Western modernism painting does not fit comfortably with the visual language of her work. There is too much going on in her paintings that demands to be addressed, that cannot be explained away as simple gestural marks, textural details or compositional devices. The paintings are rigorously geometric in their degree of abstraction but there is a layer of references that is the very basis of her pictorial imagery and therefore difficult to ignore. The relationship, the ties to the source of her imagery, is all powerful”.  

Yvonne Boag is an inveterate traveller and a perceptive observer of her surroundings. “With every new work I start, it seems I am always at a beginning”, she says, “Each work is an attempt to hold on to time. To make marks of that time, which will trace a pattern through my life.”  

Yvonne Boag | Here and There opened at the Nancy Sever Gallery on Saturday 27 August 2016 and runs until 18 September. For further information please contact Nancy Sever at nancy.sever@iinet.com.au or Tel 02 6239 5434. The Gallery is open Wed–Sun 11am-6pm.

STRANGE ASSOCIATIONS

The Art of Yvonne Boag

There is a disarming simplicity to Yvonne Boag’s paintings and prints ─ though certainly not her books and ‘therapeutic’ sculptures ─ which belies the complexity of the process which begets them.

And Yvonne is just as disarming when she talks about the work. “Mostly, I don’t know what I’m doing or why I’m doing it. I know what it is once I have done it.” This is evidence of just how instinctively she works. But it is an instinctual process which is again belied by the seemingly natural order of the finished work which suggests that it could not be anything other than what it is. This manifests itself in the rhythms across the surface of the painting where forms and colours engage in such an easy and rational conversation, and in the adroit tensions that Boag sets up between the formal character of the work and the imagery derived from the phenomenal world.

The phenomenal world ─ let’s call it the context ─ is the driver of Yvonne Boag’s work. The work is a response to the world about her, not a representation of it. In that sense, it does what art has always done ─ namely, to transform sight into insight, into a heightened awareness of what it is to be in this world.

Typically, we become intensely aware when there is some kind of disjunction or rendering of the familiar. This sense of disconnection, or ‘duality’ as she calls it, has become the recurrent trigger to Boag’s work. It probably began during her period in Paris (1991-94) when her work was a response to the city, or more accurately, a response to her response to the city. But if Paris was dislocating, her regular trips to the remote Aboriginal community at Lockhart River in far North Queensland (after 1997) were tectonic in their impact. The work produced from these trips pushed developments in Paris even further: flat, abstracted forms derived from the everyday world rendered without any tonal gradation and forming tightly coherent all-over rhythms of colour and form.

However, it has been South Korea which has been the dominant source of Boag’s vision since her first visit there in 1993. It was, she says, “so different, every day was like an adventure, it was like a reality check”. We need to remember that South Korea only opened up in 1988 and, although its development since then has been phenomenal, it remains culturally highly distinctive. It is this differentness which feeds Boag’s work now.

The work is a response to the everyday reality of South Korea, embodying a sense of ‘being there’. Hence, there is an emblematic quality to these prints and paintings where the colours express the emotions felt in response to the landscape, to the city. But they are also responses to other visual features, such as the orthography and sounds of the Korean language. In short, they are visual analogues to the experience of being in a strange place.

Sociology has term for the anonymous people we see every day, say commuting to work: familiar strangers. For Yvonne Boag familiar strangeness has become the crucible of her work, recalling those famous lines of A.E. Housman: “I, a stranger and afraid, in a world I never made.”
