The echo chamber effect in media discourse refers to the way information is exaggerated or distorted as it disseminates further from its source. In this environment, echoed opinions reinforce social norms and create barriers to critical discourse. Alternatively, artists often put information and their subjects through an echo chamber to destabilize normative thinking and create opportunity for discovery and debate. In this exhibition three contemporaries explore genres of landscape, portraiture, sculpture and abstraction. Joe Wilson, Dan O’Toole, and Bennett reinforce each other’s individual practice through a close working relationship. These visual ties disclose a new generation of experimentation aimed at developing themes and compositional strategies that seek to define new painting in Sydney.
