Hill Smith Gallery will be exhibiting the works of four painters, Deidre But-Husaim, Matt R. Martin, Shannon Smiley and Adriane Strampp in the group show ‘Uneasy Idyll’ at Art Central during Hong Kong Art Week.

While each artist is unique in their method and interpretation, the artists share themes associated with the figure and the landscape such as the illusion of the idyllic, ambiguity and time suspended. All four approach their practice with great skill and technical knowledge, the resulting paintings allowing a breadth of interpretation yet remaining visually and thematically sympathetic with each other.

ADRIANE STRAMPP explores the theme of the Romantic landscape, the intangible and the evocative, the search for a sense of place, and the desire for connection, a reflection of her own peripatetic background. Interest is not in the mimetic representation of landscape, but rather the suggestion and presence of the viewer observing, present yet separated from that which he sees. It traces both the literal and the emotional journey of a landscape remembered, the search for familarity, and explores triggers that help us connect the past with the present.

Adriane Strampp的作品,是對浪漫主義風景畫的探討,是只可意會但回味無窮的情緒,是對未知之地的探索,對心意相通的渴望,更是藝術家對周遭環境的情感投射。Adriane的興趣並不在於對景觀的重現,而是暗示並展現出一種與其所觀察到的景象相分離的體驗。它追溯由記憶中的風景而生的感性之旅,尋找似曾相識的感覺,並探索能夠讓我們將歷史與當下相連接的觸發點。
