21-04-2009 - 20-05-2009

Exhibition Comments:

 RELIEF EXHIBITION - Opening Night Thursday APRIL 23,  6 to 8pm.

Exhibiting Mixed Medium and Wall Relief Assemblage art by Michael JENKINS, Ann HARRY, Alan WARNER,Tony Colangelo, Andrew MANGELSDORF and figurative sculpture by Phillip HAMMIAL.

Open Tuesday to Sunday 12-6pm 

  'Relief' is the title of the latest exhibition at Soho Galleries Sydney. This group show offers a incredibly wide range of wall relief and assemblage sculpture across all mediums from both established and emerging Australian contemporary artists.

 Alan Warner utilises skills learned as a mould maker and leather designer to cut, shape and paint marine plywood and create sensuous and tactile three dimensional forms. The feature piece of the exhibition "Suits" is a solid painted plywood assemblage which draws inspiration from suit and tie designs found in everyday advertising.

Tony Colangelo's latest works are aluminium bas relief panels. These fantastic wall reliefs evoke a topographical effect with their highly light responsive monochromatic surface. Tony works in set sizes, and his work can be arranged to form diptyches, triptychs or any combination to suit the hanging space. 

Michael Jenkins sees the unique beauty and artistic potential of recycled timbers, road signs and discarded building materials. He creates abstracted patterns by cutting found materials and re-arranging them as he sees fit. His precise joining skill ensures every relief work is superbly crafted and finished.  

Andrew Mangelsdorf works with a combination of stencil on canvas in addition to perspex and mdf overlays. He creates work that is fun and colourful. He believes art is visual furniture, something that catches the viewers eye and their attention for a reason. Bright colour and pop imagery is very important to Mangelsdorf's work as it reflects the fun and positive atmosphere that he wishes to create.

Exhibition Comments:

                                      

'The idea for a new direction in my recent work is to find harmony in movement and proportion, elegance and simplicity in form. This is all combined in 'Harmony,' 'Eternal Youth,'  "Olympic Spirit' and 'Wild dancers'. One look at these sculptures should fill you with excitement and pleasure and a desire to touch them.  

The human body forever feeds my imagination, inspiring me as an artist to create again and again. 

But only the moment of discovery within our self has the meaning, and moves the artist to find a new language for these creations.  We treasure only the moment of discovery within our self. 

The hidden parts of our innermost natures are analogous to the secrets of the cosmos. We are constantly trying to uncover them, displaying them in the light of our understanding.' Larissa is consistently intent on capturing moments, spirits and essences; so much so that her legacy will be clear to both present and future generations 

Larissa Smagarinsky draws the inspiration for her themes from a vast arena. Her stimuli come also from the Bible, ancient history, modern events and from human emotions. However her main interest has been and still is the human body in repose or movement. Movement fascinates the artist and many of her most successful works embody movement in sport,  gymnastics and dance. Some sculptures are just called 'Movement' (1993) others are more closely  defined eg: 'Crazy ballet' (1988) and 'Wild Dance" (2002). Her other great interest is in the  portrayal of love from mythology and the present. Larissa Smagarinsky explores its many aspects from the highly erotic in 'Lover's Ecstasy' (1990) and 'Tired Lovers' (1990)  to the maternal filial love and finally to the sublimated divine love in "Madonna" (1992).

Larissa is consistently intent on capturing moments, spirits and essences; so much so that her legacy will be clear to both present and future generations.

 'The hidden parts of our innermost natures are  analogous to the secrets of the cosmos. We are  constantly trying to uncover them, displaying them in the light of our understanding.'

27 LANDSCAPES FROM THE LIFE OF BEN HALL
CK WEDDING OF BEN AND BIDDY
whitespacer "27 LANDSCAPES FROM THE LIFE OF BEN HALL"
by CHRIS KENYON
09-06-2012 - 30-06-2012

Exhibition Comments:

CHRIS KENYON  - Exhibiting Level One Open Gallery from June 30.

Opening speaker Peter Bradley author of The Judas Covenant

“The Death of Ben Hall”

(direct descendant of  Ben Hall)

Bernard Doc Neeson,  (Musician) will perform at the event.

This exhibition of 27 landscape paintings portrays significant places in the life of the bushranger, Ben Hall. From his marriage to Bridget Walsh in Bathurst, in 1856 to his violent and lonely death at Billabong Creek near Forbes in 1865.

I was helped and guided in my research with some of the sites being difficult to locate. I was also fortunate in gaining access to private properties that had been attacked and robbed by the Hall gang. Some like Cliefden, still bear scars in the form of bullet holes.

In the process of producing the paintings I found them becoming increasingly darker and less structured  as Ben became more lost and desparate, with the world closing in on him.

Each site is portrayed as it is today, not as it was at the time; the intention was to allow the history of what happened in each particular place to filter through in  the emotion of each painting.

Exhibition Comments:

 HAIOU LIU  CONTEMPORARY PAINTINGS

Writing is the consummate passion of my life.  For the past ten years I have tried, with words, to capture endurance and struggle within the members of my family.  Such a narrative is ripe with sorrow and suffering at the hands of war and politics. 

I would paint as a break from the emotional intensity of writing.  Once I had a small collection of completed works in front of me, I realized that contrary to my writing, they reflected peace, tranquility and harmony.  That’s when I understood that painting was more than a hobby.   It was  equilibrium to life.

HU MING & ARTIST FRIENDS GROUP EXHIBITION of Contemporary paintings.

Exhibition dates May 25 to June 21, 2013.

Group Exhibition Visual   -   HU MING & FRIENDS ARTIST GROUP EXHIBITION

About HU MING  :

Chinese immigrants began to trickle into Australia in 1940. Nowadays men and women of Chinese ethnicity contribute greatly to the life of Australia particularly in the Valley of the Arts. There is growing interest in Asian Art with both private and public art galleries intensifying the now long pursuit ties with Asia, which is having a far greater social and artistic effect on our community.

 

There is a new face in the wave of established Asian Artists. HU Ming is a pioneer in her field being diverse in combining both modem and classical styles. There is a blend of exotic, strange, humorous and above all mysterious in her art. She merges a conscious sense of post modernism and element of sub-culturalism.

 

Her paintings express dearly her worship of the female form depicting both physical strength and feminine beauty. Her works are not of a planned process born of her dreams and represents an accumulation of her diverse experiences.

 

She has held exhibitions in Japan and Singapore with her paintings being sold to buyers in the US, Canada, Asia and Europe.

 

In 1970 at the age of 15 she joined the Chinese Army. Her mother and father both served in the army as Doctors. She was eventually promoted to the rank of Major after 20 years continuous service. Hu Ming began her army training as a nurse. Whilst still in the army she studied art and graduated in 1983 from The Fine Arts College of 7‑janfin where she majored in traditional Chinese painting. She further developed her skills sufficiently to become a scenic artist, costume designer and production designer in the Chinese military film studio. As a part of her training Hu Ming studied extensively at the ultimate shrine to Buddhism in Dun Huang. Here she traced a large number of cave paintings, which helps her perfect her skills in traditional figure painting. One of Hu Ming's works was added to the collection of the Tiarijin Museum.

 

She moved to Australia in 2000 and is a permanent resident, most recently  exhibiting in China, Australia and Germany.
