Exhibition Comments:

MATT CARNEY    (1966-2011)

 CONTEMPORARY SCULPTURE

 Matt Carney was a young sculptor with a broad scope of talent.  His work had become greatly sought after here in Australia. Matt specialised in mild steel works as well as lost wax bronze.  

In his early training Matt completed a Bachelor of Fine Art  at the University of Tasmania majoring in both sculpture and painting. He then apprenticed himself to the well known Australian sculptor Stephen Walker as an assistant in bronze casting. During this time Matt also completed several major public works and maintained his own studio.  

The nineties found Matt in London where the theatricality of his sculpture background was recognised by Sir Richard Branson and he was hired as a creative consultant to design and fit out the interiors of Branson's Voyager Club empire. Matt returned to Tasmania in 1996 and established a working studio. 

He had been selling nationally at galleries such as, Handmark Gallery and Red Chapel Gallery in Hobart. Code Red Gallery in Perth, Soho Galleries in Sydney and Delshan Gallery and Artefact in Melbourne. 

Due to his commercial success this had been the first opportunity for Matthew to create a coherent body of work as a show and as he has built his own foundry this year, has incorporated lost wax bronzes into his repertoire.

Collections included are Arts Tasmania, Leonard Bernstein Collection NYC, Richard Branson Collection, London and private collections in America, Japan, England and Singapore.

Exhibition Comments:

CONTEMPORARY PAINTINGS -  SOHO GALLERIES

A fascination with the human condition and a childhood passion for painting and sculpture have crystallised in him resulting in a desire to paint pictures that are honest expressions of his inner feelings and personal experiences from the heart.

His varied background has no doubt contributed to this fascination for the vibrancy of life that he so confidently depicts in his paintings and sculptures.  He was born in Mali and moved to Brighton in England at a young age and from there to Bangkok, Thailand, where he spent the next six years of his life absorbing the colours, smells and tastes of the Orient.

His most formative years were spent in Brazil where, in addition to learning Portuguese, he learned to adapt to a fascinating and variegated scene where different cultural backgrounds and traditions blend together.  The Brazilian artist Di Cavalcanti was an early influence but after he started painting seriously, the influence of Picasso, Modigliani and Chagall has dominated his canvasses and sculptures.

Nicholas Broughtons inimitable tattooed contour lines, clarity of idea and image, and distinctive sense of colour attest to his daring individual stance in making powerful impassioned statements.

ROBIN HOLLIDAY  ARTIST SCULPTOR     

 (November l932 - April 2014)

CONTEMPORARY BRONZE SCULPTURE   Soho Galleries & ArtPark Exhibitions

 Robin's interest in sculpture dates back to the l960s and l970s when he
attended classes at an Art School in Hertford, Herts, UK, and also at the
Camden Art Centre, Finchley, London. Two of his instructors were the
established sculptors Mark Harvey and Jesse Watkins, and three others
had worked as assistants to Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Eduardo
Paolozzi. He have worked with stone, wood, clay and plaster.Robin  also obtained
instruction in art metalwork, and have experimented with mixed media.

Robin's work was  mainly abstract, but sometimes bridged the gap between
representational forms and abstract ones. This is in part due to the
influence of organic shapes on his sculpture. A technique of  working
mainly in plaster, built up on wire armatures and a combination of
adding plaster and carving or wearing it down he  achievde the final form.
This was  then finished with a bronze patina, or caste in bronze. In Sydney
one of his abstract pieces, known as "Diad", had been caste in bronze
at Alan Crawford's foundry.

Robin had been influenced strongly by the established British school of
abstract sculpture, particularly Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth,
but also Lynn Chadwick and Reg Butler. His  interest in organic forms
can be related to the paintings, drawings and prints of Graham Sutherland.

As well as a part-time sculptor, Robin was  an author, and earned
his  living until retirement in l997 as a scientist, specialising in genetics
and cell biology.

Formworks Wall  Relief Sculpture
Untitled Relief Series - Detail
whitespacer "Formworks Wall Relief Sculpture "
by ANTONIO COLANGELO
18-02-2018 - 05-05-2018

Exhibition Comments:

 ANTONIO COLANGELO  WALL RELIEF  

The latest works, the aluminium bas relief, have  been of particular interest in the today's modern fitout including stainless steel and alloy highlights. 

Colangelo's finish is extremely high, evoking a topographical effect, with a highly light responsive monochromatic surface.  The work is ideally placed in low light areas, as it absorbs and reflects the available light revealing a metallic incandescence, a kind of understated sensuality.  

His work comes in various sizes that can be combined to form diptyches, triptychs and series of panels

The Creative Process  

A number of processes go into the creation of Tony's highly fabricated sculptures.   

Various objects are screwed into and/or attached to the tyres of a tractor. Tony then drives the tractor over the aluminium. The result is a substrate with rippling, dimpled effects, negative and positive.   

This may seems "simple" but at this point the emerging sculpture goes through a number of highly fabricated processes:  

* The corners are welded and ground sometimes up to 3 to 4 times  aluminium welding being a highly skilled function. The bas-relief is now a smooth continuous surface which can then be fitted seamlessly onto the specially constructed timber support.  

* The sculpture is then polished many times enabling light to play off against the surface shapes.   

* The work is finished off with a specially formulated clear lacquer. This not only gives the sculpture a lustrous surface but prevents oxidization.   

* Further polishing results in a circular lustre, enhancing the surface which has now taken on a sense of swirling movement.
