Shaun Gladwell: Pacific Undertow

In his largest survey show to date, the development of Shaun Gladwell’s practice is charted across 20 years of paintings, photographs, prints, drawings and videos, and his recent explorations in augmented reality and virtual reality. Co-curators Natasha Bullock and Blair French platform his relational practice and its important keynotes such as relationships to landscape, people, the body in motion and highlight ‘the deep intelligence coupled with an aesthetic joy that underpins Shaun’s work.’
