EXHIBITION

 

Touch With Your Eyes presents work by both emerging and established Tasmanian artists, who use colour, shape, light, texture and perception as a means to explore their ideas. Touch With Your Eyes aims to simultaneously focus the audience's attention on individual artworks, and the exhibition as a whole. This dual experience aims to split the viewer in two, using space, surface and perception to tug at your arms, and pull you around the room.

 

 

ABOUT Sawtooth ARI

 

Sawtooth ARI is an Artist Run Initiative based in Launceston, Tasmania, that aims to present a quality program of contemporary art exhibitions, projects and events that challenges both artists and audiences. It encourages submissions from local, national and international artists looking to show in an environment supportive of experimentation, and seeks to be a catalyst for a stronger engagement with contemporary art from a broader spectrum of society. It aims to grow its audience and be a financially sustainable, well-governed, and learning-based organisation.
