Colour, Form, Line is a theme-based group show curated by William Seeto for the end-of-year annual exhibition titled Articulate Turns Four. The exhibition theme of colour, form and line sets the context by providing a framework that enables discourse, and offers a means of connecting diverse art practices.

The artists in Articulate Turns Four: Colour, Form, Line are Lisa Andrew, Elizabeth Ashburn, Clementine Barnes, Lynne Barwick, Linden Braye, Brogan Brunt, Sue Callanan, Andy Chi Yau Chan, Shirley Cho, Clara Chung, Vivienne Dadour, Ella Dreyfus, Judith Duquemin, Edwin Easydorchik, Michele Elliott, Nola Farman, Kath Fries, Brigitta Gallaher, Jane Gavan, Beata Geyer, Anne Graham, Veronica Habib, Yvette Hamilton, Laine Hogarty, Adrian Hall, Barbara Halnan, Sahar Hosseinabadi, Tom Isaacs, Melissa Maree, Rose Ann McGreevy, Anne Mosey, Christine Myerscough, Jennifer O’Brien, Sue Pedley, Sergio Plata, Jacek Przybyszewski, Christopher Raymond, Margaret Roberts, Marlene Sarroff, Kevin Sheehan, Andrew Simmons, Sardar Sinjawi, Anke Stacker, Paul Sutton, Jane Burton Taylor, Toni Warburton, Gary Warner, Cecilia White, Elke Wohlfahrt and India Zegan. 

In formulating the exhibition, the curator was briefed to invite artists and coordinate installation on the ground and first floors of Articulate. In order to facilitate curation, a theme was set that reverse-curated the show by allowing artists to choose whether they took part or not. In making work, artists were encouraged to reference the thematic elements individually or in combination, directly or indirectly, as metaphor or reality. The theme offered structure by addressing different ways of working with the view to presenting an alternate outcome. It was a guide that allowed variation of practice and enabled discourse between different artists’ work. In setting parameters it brought together diverse practices, dealt with individual viewpoints, and drew work together. During installation, the artworks were assembled and curatorial positioned so they worked-off each other in order to create a cohesive exhibition.

The curator, Dr. William Seeto is an established artist and independent curator. He completed a Doctorate in Philosophy at the University of Sydney, and has curated exhibitions at the Tin Sheds Gallery - University of Sydney and Articulate Project Space. His practice of 33 years revisits abstraction by examining perception, and different ways artworks heighten or displace experience.

“It must be emphasized that in seeing a work of art that has been composed by precise means, the viewer does not perceive dominant details. His impression is one of perfect balance to which all the parts contribute, an impression which not only applies to the parts as such, but is transmitted also to the relation existing between the work of art and the viewer.” (1925) Theo van Doesburg
