'YARD

27 April - 26 May 2018

Stuart Elliott is one of Perth's most important senior artists.

His artistic career spans some 40 years, and includes such milestones as being bestowed a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010 by Artsource, 20 solo exhibitions and over 150 group exhibitions in venues as prestigious as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney and the National Gallery of Victoria. He is widely acknowledged as being an influential lecturer, exquisitely articulate, and enormously generous with his art, curating, writing and exhibitions skills. The late John Stringer stated, "I think, without any question, Stuart is one of the most significant artists we have in Western Australia". [ABC TV, Stateline, 06.02.2004]

'YARD is a small exhibition of paintings, prints and sculptures.

Elliott writes,
"An industrial yard is a place where goods in transit or surplus to immediate need are retained. Similarly, the material in 'YARD consists of that which is either refined residue from, or consequential to The Council project [May 2013 - October 2017]... While these figures needed to be different but equal, my own intention was for each figure to be self-sufficient while being part of a greater installation, perhaps as in an ideal culture where each individual is unique but integrated into a cooperative whole.

To develop such a large and process intensive body of work there was a considerable amount of R&D. With this came the flotsam and jetsam of that journey, experimental prototypes and stuff that simply did not fit. While much of this material was essentially overburden in terms of the greater project, much of it also had some kind of currency as sign posting of the evolution of the project as a whole. Thus the contents of 'YARD (an abbreviation of Council Yard) is a selection of material and ideas that were surplus to need, redundant or obsolete for The Council. It is a selection. There was much that was crucial to the realisation of the parent project but had little intrinsic evocative juice. Some of that also developed into sub-genres of by-product work, related ever more distantly to the core project but of strange interest in their own right. Some of this appears in the 'YARD's photographic work. Much of it still forms as yet dormant dunes, stacks and fields in the studio".
