15 July 2022 - 21 August 2022


David Sequeira

David Sequeira, Song Cycle (detail), 2019-2020, Gouache on paper, 29.7 x 21cm.

David Sequeira’s works often refer to musical notation, however they do not seek to illustrate particular pieces of music. Instead, musical references are used to heighten the sensation of colour in his work. The visual resonance and vibration of each colour is articulated not only by its geometric shape, but also by its position within Sequeira’s overall compositions. Through the individual components of his works and their subsequent ‘orchestration’ as a single piece, Sequeira points to the infinite harmonic possibilities of colour.

This exhibition is presented by Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts in partnership with NAFA.

Exhibition opening launch 6pm Friday 15 July 2022. Full details here.

A musical performance INVISIBLE REALITIES will also be presented from 6pm Tuesday 2 August in conjunction with Songs, in partnership with the Australian Festival of Chamber Music and NAFA. Full details and the ticket link available here.
