"In Abstract + at Gallery 139 the simple, organic, blackened, wooden forms from prolific sculptor Joanna O’Toole are set against the paintings of six artists whose individual interpretations of abstraction have combined to produce an engaging, bright and colourful exhibition. In his first exhibition in several years John Sorby has pared down his harbour references to confident, gestural marks using an effective, limited palette in small paintings that sit comfortably alongside Julia Flanagan’s loosely patterned, playful works and Lisa Pollard’s more formally arranged pieces. Toni Amidy’s bold and expressive sweeps of thick paint and Justin Lees’ high energy celebrations are calmed by Eira Chidgey’s landscape-inspired soft fields of bleeding colour in this well considered and balanced exhibition."
