Test Pattern brings together painting and video to provide an overview of the influence of found abstraction in Australian contemporary practice. Many of the works in the exhibition are made at the turn of the century; a time when Painting was in flux and in need of revision. Artists were painting directly on the walls and making videos about making paintings, riffing on notions of appropriation, originality and impermanence, with a few nods to Art History and a few thumbed noses to the critical mass.
National Exhibitions Touring Support (NETS) Victoria is currently working with Geoff Newton to develop a national tour of Test Pattern in 2013-14.
