Triangulation 2 opens Friday 21 August at 6-8pm

A collaborative project by Julie Brooke & Susan Buret

Opening Friday 21 August 6-8pm
Open 11am - 5pm Friday - Sunday 22 Aug - 6 Sept 
Artists' talks - 3 pm on Sunday 6 September


Triangulation refers to a dialogue between Brooke and Buret that concerns not only the geometric forms with which they
work, but also the mathematical process of using two fixed points to determine a new, unknown value.  Working two
hundred kilometers apart, this dialogue often takes the form of intuitive responses to ideas expressed in emails
and conversations,  as well looking at and responding to works in progress.



In the summer of 2014 Brooke and Buret both began making work using the colours and forms of butterflies.  
Brooke’s paintings arose from a collaboration with applied mathematicians who analyse complex structures inside
 butterfly wing scales, while Buret’s work was informed by her observations of Blue Jewel butterflies,
Hypochrysops delicia, in her garden.  Using the shared visual language of grids and geometric forms, Brooke and Buret
 explore the possibilities of tapestry, painting and modular constructions to establish the third point of the triangle.
