Negotiating a tightrope between consistency and aesthetic petrification.
Sasha Grishin writes of Trevor Vickers' painting 'Delacy 7' in Canberra Times review of 'Lightworks' at the Drill Hall:
Vickers's DeLacy 7 (2008), acrylic on canvas, is one of his classic explorations of a bordered rectangle with the dividing line in the middle hinting at a diptych-like format.
It is an immaculate, clever and subtle painting where you are drawn into complex games with optics. The slight after-glow of yellow heightens the perception of moving fields of sensuous blue.
Trevor Vickers is exhibiting alongside three other veteran abstract painters - Lesley Dumbrell, Virginia Coventry and Richard Dunn – in 'Lightworks', curated by Charles Nodrum at the ANU Drill Hall.
