The opening night was spent with our beautiful supporters who’ve been with us from the beginning. Showing works contributed by the artists who have worked with us over the past 7 years has made for such a rich show. Thank you to you all for working with us over the years here in Toowoomba, and we still hold the dream of having you all come together in person in the future. (it’s good to dream!) The works will remain in their custom made to measure boxed archive as a part of the RAYGUN permanent collection. RETROACTIVE will be on display until December 23rd. Happy Christmas raygunners and we look forward to sharing our next 7 years with you.  xx

Werner Windisch Opening Night

Friday night at RAYGUN was the opening of Werner’s show. A collection of monochrome paintings made on found cardboard packing boxes, the works hang from walls like a series of transparent colour fields. The interplay between the discarded object and finely worked painting reiterates the form of the image carrier and the relationship of the works to the space and the viewer. Over the course of the month we will reveal a conversation between Werner and a visitor to the works about how the paintings came to be, and how through their luminous layering are able to seduce the viewer. We’re super excited to share this dialogue with you.
