The Australian artist, Tony Smibert and Chinese artist Gao Ping are from two cultures which ostensibly appear to be radically different, yet the connection between the now and the past; the relationship of the physicality and spirituality contained within all things is a cultural connection they both share.
Tony Smibert and Gao Ping work in not dis-similar ways, each transcending their intellectual control over the process of creating, recording, mark-making and expressing – they are agents of a greater force, rather than protagonists who create self-consciously as artists.
For each artist, the process of working is critical to the end result – the subconscious state of allowing the materials used in the process of creating their works to emerge and reveal the infinite (space, time), and the connectedness between past, present and future.
