Fire, trees, and water: Michael Rigby

3 February 2022 - 30 June 2022


Artist(s): Michael Rigby

Location: Crown Street Stables

Fire, trees, and water is a new exhibition of monotype prints by artist Michael Rigby, exploring natural processes, human aesthetics and relationships to the environment.

Observing dramatic shifts at a macro and micro level, Rigby uses his skills in tone, line, and gesture that reflect both the human hand and the mechanical artefacts of the printing press.

The artist seeks to impart an understanding of the interdependence that exists between humanity and the rest of the natural world through intimate works.

Michael Rigby is a Melbourne-based artist and designer working across paint, print and photographic media. His interests in mark-making, representation, German/Japanese aesthetics, and spirituality have led him to explore the connections between body, mind and heart, beingness, and the narratives we create across space-time.
