'In the Smile of a Tree', new works by Kendal Murray is on now at FLG until Saturday 15 October 2022, 3pm.
Kendal Murray’s work serves to remind us that a sense of connection with the experience of childhood is foundational to our understanding of ourselves. Through an engagement with her work we are reminded that our connection to the Earth, to green spaces and the environment, is an integral part of who we are. Fostering a close relationship with the environment from a young age, provides us with a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves. If we nurture that relationship, it will in turn nurture us. (excerpt from catalogue essay by Joey Hespe 2022)

This is a new Chelsea Gustafsson painting 'Still Life with Books' (30x30cm) in her current solo 'Fish out of Water' on from today at FLG.

'For Fish Out of Water, the artist has focussed her attention on the ocean’s most indomitable apex predator - the shark - to once again lay bare the complicated relationship between us humans and our broader environment. Rather than preach to the viewer about our collective destruction of our planet and the decimation of animal populations, however, Gustafsson prefers to explore our fear, fetishism and reverence for these majestic animals with the hope that the viewer will draw their own conclusions. ' Excerpt from catalogue essay by Kate McAuley.

You can come and meet Chelsea at the opening on Saturday 1st October from 1-3pm.

Pop in and visit us today for the last chance to see Hannah Quinlivan's solo 'Smokescreen'. We are open from 11am to 3pm. This amazing work is created by cutting and heat moulding hard acrylic.

Chelsea Gustafsson's new solo 'Fish out of Water' starts next week at FLG. You might want to hit the link below if you want to snap up one of these tasty pieces before they are all gone!

https://www.flg.com.au/exhibition/fish-out-water

''It is the piece, 'Still Life Without Oceanic White Tip' (pictured here), that perhaps best represents the overall intent of this exhibition. In it a picture of a shark has been ripped from the scene and a tube of lotion, which may contain the shark liver oil used in cosmetics for decades, sits in the foreground. It’s the ornate gilded mirror, representing vanity and reflection, angled out of the frame, however, that gives the viewer pause and invites us to question our place within the world she has shown us. With 'Fish Out Of Water', Gustafsson is neither dogmatic nor anthropological. Instead she is respectful of human intelligence, rueful of our failings and concerned for our future - and here in lies her genius. '' Excerpt from catalogue essay by Kate Macauley 2022.

This deeply personal series drawing on the threads of her family tree and its embedded memories. With a young family of her own, Hannah Quinlivan returned to her childhood as a source of inspiration, observing that memory is as malleable as her wire sculptures — made and remade, altered and extended — creating new realities and shifting identities. (excerpt from catalogue essay by Sita McAlpine)

Hannah Quinlivan's current solo 'Smokescreen' runs from the 30 August to 24th September at FLG Melbourne. Entry is free so feel welcome to come in and enjoy these beautiful works in person. https://www.flg.com.au/exhibition/smokescreen⁠

FLG is delighted to present Sydney artist Kendal Murray's first solo exhibition with the gallery. Her exhibition 'In the Smile of a Tree' looks at the significant relationship between childhood play in nature, children's wellbeing, and the cultivation of their environmental identity. The mixed-media sculptures in the exhibition work as time capsules, offering glimpses into childhood adventures in the natural world as they discover places to hide, explore and imagine.

If you are one of the collectors on Kendal's preview list please keep an eye on your inboxes over the coming days.

'In the Smile of a Tree' 27th September - 15 October.

Hannah Quinlivan does a beautiful job capturing the shadows and light play of her spatial drawings with her lyrical linear paintings. This one is Fission 2022, acrylic on Belgian linen, 92cm x 150cm.

'Quinlivan developed this series alongside a major public artwork Fluency commissioned by Mirvac in Brisbane. The extreme weather events of March 2022 halted the artwork’s install as the waters of the Brisbane River engulfed parts of the city, including the foot holds of the site of the installation. This experience of witnessing a climate change event raises the question - how do we share and hold memories as a collective to make change for our future?

Chelsea Gustafsson's highly anticipated next solo exhibition is coming up very soon. If you are a collector on her preview list keep an eye on your inbox over the next couple of days for the preview catalogue. This piece is 'Still Life with ALfred' 2022 oil on board 30 x 30cm - swipe along for details of this incredible little painting.

'For the more detailed still-lifes, Gustafsson was inspired by the Dutch vanitas paintings of the Baroque period. Rich in symbolism and developed to represent human vanity and the transience and futility of life, this intricate style was the perfect foundation for the artist to add to her canon. Examples of sharks in popular as well as classical culture are peppered throughout these works. Mad Magazine, Hanna-Barbera’s cartoon shark Jabberjaw, and pulp fiction book covers make an appearance.' Excerpt from catalogue essay by Kate McAuley 2022

The poetically choreographed and exceptionally rendered paintings in Julie Davidson’s forthcoming solo ‘Beauty in Transience’ are now online – catalogue link www.flg.com.au/exhibition/beauty-in-transience “Tightly rendered fruit and florals tap into the symbolic vocabulary of the Vanitas, evoking the transience of life and the futility of pleasure. Yet unlike the fecund, often decaying displays of the Vanitas, Davidson’s fruits are flawless; her flowers and foliage unblemished. They have a hyperreal valency characteristic of the perfect, altered imagery of our digital era. Loquats are painted with impossibly smooth contours and crisp buoyant leaves, bringing to mind the faux fruit decorations that symptomise an era predicated on simulacra and surface. The pearly petals of Davidson’s magnolias and camelias open up as if embracing the cool light hitting their silken surfaces – a final breath before they wither and fall. These immaculate blooms elicit a soft melancholy as we contemplate how the beauty of life shines but for a fleeting moment before being eclipsed by the ever-present shadow of mortality.” Excerpt from catalogue essay by Elli Walsh 2019
Hi
Press Release 27 October 2018 Connection to Country ‘A spiritualised visual narrative of two brothers’ ART MOB Gallery 29 Hunter st Hobart Tasmania On the 1st of November two of Tasmania’s most eminent Indigenous artists, Wayne and Mick Quilliam, will meet in Hobart at Art Mob gallery for their first ever collaborative exhibition: Connection to Country. The two brothers will showcase an array of paintings and printed photography to display their respective knowledge of culture and connection to land. They have taken different paths throughout their careers. Wayne left Tasmania as a young man to explore the world, refining his artistic ability with perpetual travel to Indigenous communities in every corner of the globe. This nomadic lifestyle is reflected in his enhanced aerial photography, capturing diverse landscapes from arid desert to beautiful coasts, exploring on the way in which the human form can resonate through the land. In contrast to his brother, Mick has stayed on the coast of Tasmania, his paintings immersed in his homeland. His use of natural ochres and motifs of Tasmanian Aboriginal mythology relay a strong connection to his country. Mick’s work has been collected by national and international collectors for over a decade. He has had 11 sell-out shows at Art Mob and was named a finalist in the 2018 King & Wood Mallesons art prize. His work as a cultural tour guide on Tasmania’s east coast, along with his story-rich painting, makes Mick one of the major proponents of continuing Tasmanian Indigenous culture. A.Professor Wayne Quilliam has created, curated and exhibited more than 280 exhibitions across the globe. Winner of numerous awards including National NAIDOC Artist of the year, Human Rights and Walkley award and nominated as a Master of Photography by National Geographic, Wayne continues to evolve in his creative practice to become one of Australia’s most influential photographic artists. www.indigenous.gallery www.aboriginal.photography Artwork ‘DJIWARR’ Wayne Quilliam 2018
Love your gallery.
Hi, I am a new artist, have never exhibited, and have just kept my works to myself... I would love your expert opinion though, as I would love to start sharing my creatures. https://www.facebook.com/Baby-Pies-Brilliant-Creatures-2137678706465687/
Can you please create a Facebook event for your future openings? 😀
