Geelong-based artists Amy Wright, Liz Wickramasinghe and Emma Itzstein have come collectively for a bunch exhibition exploring similar subject material, from three views. Whereas the artists are all closely impressed by the panorama, every has a singular strategy to processing what they see, and the way it’s portrayed of their work. ‘Dwelling in the identical area and every having totally different types lends itself fantastically to a bunch present,’ they are saying. And we are inclined to agree!
Gardens of Thoughts and Delusion encapsulates the artist’s broad strategy to decoding and portray the pure world – with the widespread thread of reminiscence and the imagined. Amy and Emma’s work notably focuses on the Gardens of Babylon and Villa Melzi respectively, taking a extra literal strategy to historical mythology and legend.
Whereas every artist has their very own distinct fashion, the overlap of their strategy makes for a cohesive group present. ‘One thing all of us share is a departure from “actuality”’, they clarify. ‘None of us create work with the purpose to symbolize nature in its goal state – our items are subjective interpretations that purpose to evoke reminiscences, emotions, connections and feelings’. Their three types vary from shiny, joyful expressionism to a extra restrained, linear interpretation. Amy’s summary work options wealthy, thick layers of paint, Liz’s work is flat, neat and graphic-like, whereas Emma’s work sit someplace between the 2 approaches, incorporating layers of expression with stylised, patterned overlay. View them first-hand from this Friday!
