Mosman Art Prize, 26 August – 4 October 2020

Light Falls oil on linen, 56 x 56 cm

Adriane Strampp is a finalist in the Mosman Art Prize with Light Falls 2019.

Established in 1947, the Mosman Art Prize is Australia’s oldest and most prestigious local government art award, and worth $50,000. It was founded by the artist, architect and arts advocate, Alderman Allan Gamble, at a time when only a small handful of art prizes were in existence in Australia and the community had very little support and few opportunities to exhibit their work.

As an acquisitive art award for painting, the winning artworks collected form a splendid collection of modern and contemporary Australian art, reflecting all the developments in Australian art practice since 1947.

The 2020 Mosman Art Prize judge is Alexie Glass-Kantor, Executive Director of Artspace, Sydney.

Transient Journals: Jan Manton Art, Brisbane 5 – 25 October 2019

dark sky over land
#1910 2019 oil on paper 25 x 25 cm

Transient Journals, new work by Melbourne painter Adriane Strampp at Jan Manton Art, Brisbane.

The landscape has been a recurring subject in Strampp’s paintings, not in the traditional art historical sense, but rather as a continuing exploration of landscapes remembered, fleeting moments and quiet views of the ordinary observed.

In these new works we see a more intimate view of the artist’s world, of places once familiar reworked through multiple layers, passages edited or dissolved, wiping away portions of the image as if leaving only that portion recalled. Although the human form remains in absentia, as in much of her earlier work, here we see traces of a human presence having been.

LIMEN

Latin limin-, limen

A threshold below which a stimulus is not perceived or is not distinguished from another

Strampp’s process begins with a collection of photographs, obscure and obscured source material, a compilation of information gathered from places once visited which continue to have some pull or gravitas.

Fragments of reference material are rearranged, merged and edited to create a new ambiguous reality and sense of discord, a response painted from the artist’s personal experiences and broader response to the present global climate.

There is also a playfulness with scale, small things are made monumental and the monumental represented in a small format, whilst the painterly process oscillates between depictions of the real and explorations of the material. Not all is always as it seems.
