Damien Minton Gallery - Carl Plate & Liam Power



I must confess that I knew very little about Carl Plate before this show. These recently discovered collages hang alongside paintings and the work is remarkably fresh and spirited considering that some are from the sixties.

Liam Power was a pleasant surprise. This 22 year old has painted some exceptional paintings for the project room. Those Novacastrians really love their coal bulks. Impressive lyrical skies with ships perched precariously on the horizon progress to intelligently composed abstracts of bulkheads.

A friendly and large crowd for a Saturday afternoon and Damien always make everyone welcome.
