When Kazimir Malevich exhibited the revolutionary painting ‘Black Square’ circa 1915, he transformed Modernism. Malevich said of the painting ‘the experience of pure non-objectivity in the white emptiness of a liberated nothing’.

A century on from the genesis of non-objectivity and concrete art within Western Art there has been a succession of relative movements in Modernism, some of which are Suprematism, Constructivism, De Stijl, Bauhaus, ZERO, Arte Povera, Op Art, Minimalism, Hard Edge Painting, Process Art and Neo-Geo.

Coinciding with the Women’s Liberation Movement gaining traction in the 1960s a few non-male artists such as Agnes Martin, Anne Truitt, Jo Baer and Bridget Riley gained major recognition within ‘Abstraction’. ‘Que des femmes’/Only Women, is the 6th Biennale of Non Objective Art and is dedicated to the work of women. The premier exhibition is in France, with satellites, including this Melbourne edition.

The history of Western Art is by and large a male artist history.

Today women artists are free to invent their own histories.

Terri Brooks and Amanda Ryan at the opening of Direction Now,
Town Hall Gallery, Melbourne 2014.

I created Art Thoughts AU in 2008 as an educational resource and record of Abstract art in Australia. At the time I was nearing the completion of my PhD.

Later during 2013-5 I project managed the national touring abstraction exhibition Direction Now. So it gives me great pleasure to host and co curate the Melbourne satellite of the 6th Biennale of Non Objective Art with Louise Blyton.

‘Terri Brooks has held over twenty five solo exhibitions and has participated in shows in public, university, commercial and artist runs spaces including art fairs nationally and in the United States, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, China, New Zealand, Poland and Greece.

Brooks is currently represented by Flinders Lane Gallery and Linton and Kay Galleries in Australia and Richeldis Fine Art in the United Kingdom.’
