André Piguet 'La Dronne' at Gertrude Glasshouse

30th Jan 2019

André Piguet and Jackson Slattery’s show ‘La Dronne', at Gertrude Glasshouse, is an exhibition of works devised while the two artists undertook the 2018 Stonehouse/Glasshouse studio residency in Chenaud, France. Organised by private benefactors and long-term Gertrude Contemporary supporters Michael Schwarz and David Clouston, and Antje and Andrew Géczy, this invitational studio residency program provides the opportunity for Australian and New Zealand artists to live and work in for a period of time in Europe.

Piguet’s new body of work continues his exploration of emergent and imaginary spaces. As an exercise in seriality and speculative image making, this new suite of paintings provide an immersive viewing experience inspired by the La Dronne river of south western France.
