About the exhibition

Neridah Stockley: A Secular View is an exhibition spanning twenty-five years of sustained practice by Northern Territory based artist Neridah Stockley and is curated by Gillean Shaw, Art Curator, University of Newcastle Art Gallery. Whilst Stockley is best known as a painter, this survey reveals the diversity of her practice including collage constructions, etchings and ceramics. The idea of a ‘survey’ plays on the notion of surveying the landscape, whether urban, rural or domestic. Through numerous en plein air encounters Stockley creates a personal record that is later reworked and resolved in the studio. The exhibition explores the depth of the artist’s oeuvre, presenting Stockley’s individual approach to abstraction, gestural mark-making and lyrical style to create a distinctive visual vernacular.
