Unframing Sight: A Cross Cultural Reading of Australian Modern and Contemporary Art

Abdullah M.I. Syed

In 2021, Pakistani-Australian artist Abdullah M.I. Syed undertook a research residency at Penrith Regional Gallery, to explore the works of Margo Lewers. Margo was well known for a distinctive approach and style that drew on traditions of craft and design, as much as hard edge abstraction. With a background in design and fine art, Abdullah identified in Margo’s work a shared interest in the formal qualities of light, colour and reflection.

This talk draws on the Australian landscape, Bauhaus philosophies and Islamic Art to paint a cross-cultural picture of our contemporary culture.
