THE latest exhibition at Gallery 139 until June 4 brings together four very different artists.

Sieglinde Battley’s four paintings layer images from rich deposits of imagination, part literary, part autobiography, part exotic visitations from the subconscious. Unravelling context takes time in pleasurable puzzling. She is a self-generating artist with a reputation for the unexpected both in Australia and in Europe.

Matthew Tome is also widely represented. His series of small multiple-plate etchings plays theme and variations on an electronic subject with sophisticated simplicity.

Lynette Bridge, at a different stage in her career, deploys many mediums in cloudy nuance, while John Heaney’s sculptural stoneware pots ape metal, marble and cement in bold folded forms.
