Bartley + Company Art Presents Painter Marie Le Lievre in conversation with curator and writer Jamie Hanton

Friday 8 September
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sydney Contemporary ticket holders
Location: Bartley + Company Art, Booth A04
RSVP Essential: Alison Bartley, alison@bartleyandcompanyart.co.nz

Marie Le Lievre has been described as having an “extraordinary ability to manipulate liquid paint into mesmerising sensual surfaces on canvas.”

Underlying the sumptuous depths of her surfaces and the layers of oil paint slowly built up on top of each other is an interest in disrupting notions of purity and teasing or corrupting the boundary between abstraction and figuration.

Jamie Hanton, Director of the contemporary art space The Physics Room, will discuss Marie’s painting in conversation with her. This will be followed by a glass of wine and an opportunity to ask questions.
