Peter Maloney Lost Continent 7 - 28 July, 2018


Lost Continent presents a vibrant and lyrical body of work which focuses on Peter Maloney’s works on paper created over the past three decades. These works have been selected from the artist’s personal archive and demonstrate the range and the evolution of his work. This exhibition follows on from Missing in Action, a larger survey curated by Terence Maloon and Anthony Oates for the ANU Drill Hall Gallery. We pay tribute to Maloon and Oates for their thoughtful distillation of a largely unseen personal trove.

Christopher Hodges, 2018

“These are not tentative drawings asking for permission to be born, but have urgency, passion and intensity. They are impatient drawings, at times possessing an explosive energy. Apart from the darkness, many of the pieces possess a sense of humour, sometimes quite obvious, on other occasions somewhat concealed and subversive.” Sasha Grishin, The Sydney Morning Herald, 2018 “The line became a cursive language which morphed into cursive writing, so it was a kind of communication with myself as well as with an imagined other”. Peter Maloney, Missing In Action, catalogue, 2018 “Your visual language is intentionally disjointed and eclectic - sometimes skirting the edge of chaos. But they are actually extremely subtle and well organised graphic compositions, despite the appearance of wild, freewheeling improvisation.” Terence Maloon, Missing In Action, catalogue, 2018
