Opinion Fatigue marks another turn in the wide-ranging practice of Queensland conceptual artist. Sebastian Moody. In this new body of work, he fuses his love of modern painting, language, and meaning.
These paintings continue in the tradition of 1960s and ’70s Australian concrete poetry, which used mechanical and commercial applications of text to expand possibilities for artmaking. Unlike Moody’s previous text works where the meaning of the words is central to the concept, Opinion Fatigue problematises our logical understanding of language by moving away from poetry and closer towards abstract expressionism.
