Gertrude Glasshouse | 44 Glasshouse Road, Collingwood

Join Gertrude Studio Artist Darcey Bella Arnold and Gertrude’s Curator in Residence Tim Riley Walsh as they discuss Arnold’s body of research, the process of enacting the disordering of ideas through a defined painting and sculptural logic, and time’s arrow, or the decline of order across time. 

Living with aphasia — a condition that can impact the ability to communicate — the artist’s mother Jennifer regularly uses the words atrophy and entropy as placeholder words in written and verbal conversation. Beginning in the studio with these two words, Darcey Bella Arnold tracks and drifts through family histories, artworks, and linguistics to form a body of research that arises from these terms and informs Arnold’s painting and sculptural works.

You can now read Tim Riley Walsh’s essay ‘If a canvas is feeling and a page is th?ught’ published on the Gertrude website

Alongside the exhibition, Arnold has produced a limited edition publication of concrete poetry. The publications are available as part of A Measure of Disorder at Gertrude Glasshouse. A limited number of editions have been made available online:
