Kick Gallery Presents

Alison Binks
Beneath, Beyond

Opening 6-8pm Thursday December 2 2010

Exhibition runs November 30 – December 18

Alison Binks’ Beneath, Beyond is an exhibition of paintings that depict elemental parts of the natural world – in particular, the sky and sea. Familiar yet ephemeral in subject, the technique and composition of Binks’ works allow enough space and abstraction to capture our imagination and allow it to roam. 

At the time of commencing this new series of paintings Binks was contemplating motherhood and later preparing for the birth of her first child. In this time of readjustment her thoughts when painting were centered around the quietness and peace that she felt would inevitably be lost with this change. Binks sought the quality of calmness and found it emerging in the paintings.  Even the seas, with their constant movement, seem to slow down and there is stillness and quiet for a moment. The result of this cathartic, meditative period of time, led Binks toward producing a series of works that have a calming static quality, as if time has stood still.

Alison Binks has traveled widely and exhibited on numerous occasions in New York and also in the United Kingdom where she undertook an artist residency in Kent. In recent years Binks has exhibited at Brightspace Gallery in St Kilda. Beneath, Beyond is Binks’ first exhibition with Kick Gallery. To preview the works in the exhibition on-line please visit

Beneath, Beyond runs until December 18 2010.

Kick Gallery is located at 4 Peel Street Collingwood & open tue-fri 11am-6pm & sat 12-5pm.
