This Wild Song Fundraiser: 30 Jan – 3 Feb 2018

  • January 31, 2018

This Wild Song is holding a silent auction to help support an exhibition of contemporary artworks by 23 Australian female artists in Singapore at the Australian High Commission. The exhibition is timed to coincide with International Women’s Day in March of 2018. Over 40 Australian female artists have donated works to help support this project, and works are currently on view at Gallerysmith and bidding online ends at 3 pm Saturday 3rd Feb.

This Wild Song (TWS) is a series of portraits and interviews with Australian women visual artists who have a unique voice.

The theme of the portraits is for the artist to become a part of their work. The photographs also hold the intention of creating an honest and true depiction of who the artist is as a person. Every portrait has a specific concept created for the artist, and significance is placed on all elements within the photograph in relation to the artist and their practice.

TWS celebrates the strong female leaders in the arts community. Although the artists being featured are from varying backgrounds, use a diverse range of mediums, and at different stages of their arts career; they are unified by their unique voices and distinct style. The inclusion of so many artistic mediums in TWS offers a broad synopsis of contemporary Australian art.

HILL SMITH GALLERY, UNEASY IDYLL  不安的牧歌

DEIDRE BUT-HUSAIM, MATT R. MARTIN, SHANNON SMILEY, ADRIANE STRAMPP

Diversion 2017 oil on linen 91 x 91 cm ACHK

Adriane Strampp, Diversion 2017 oil on linen 91 x 91 cm

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。

Catalogue here, Essay by Simon Gregg. Extract:

‘In her work Gauze, meanwhile, Adriane Strampp heightens our sensory perception by concealing much of the pictorial data. Hers is a dreamy, half-remembered world where subject and colour are pared back to an elemental core, and where mood and atmosphere take precedence.’
