Onespace Gallery is pleased to launch our 2022 program with a solo exhibition of recent works by Daniel Sherington.
Utilising drawing as a traditional framework for his practice to operate within, Sherington often uses the medium as a means of facilitating an interdisciplinary approach to making. His work considers how historical conventions of production can be critically reframed by our digital capacities. Sherington’s work is often reiterated, reworked, and leveraging the relationship with the imagery he reproduces and makes.In his most recent body of work, Sherington depicts computer-generated ‘spaces,’ which challenge the traditional mode of painting often associated with colonial Australian landscapes. Reframing these historical modes of production is essential to countering the primacy that ‘landscape painting’ purports to hold in the canon in our contemporary era.
