reversible destiny | Marian Tubbs
11 January - 5 March 2023
reversible destiny is the first solo exhibition by Marian Tubbs held in the Northern Rivers. Comprised of new and recent works, the presentation sees the artist move through experimental methods in large-scale digital assemblage, screen-printing, and installation. Over the past five years Marian has examined technology, acceleration, and ecologies with vibrant assemblage and image making. The exhibition title reversible destiny speculates on notions of the preordained, narratives of ‘choose your own adventure’ are considered via machined experiments and aesthetic investigation into bio-mimicry. Natural working systems are in fact key to all of the works in the exhibition. Inevitably the philosophical provocation ‘art can only imitate nature’ is met.
