Adriane Strampp is a finalist in The John Leslie Art Prize, one of Australia’s most prestigious and valuable prizes for contemporary landscape painting. With a first prize of $20,000 (non-acquisitive) the Prize consistently attracts the highest calibre of artists working in Australia. An additional prize of $1,000 will be given to the best Gippsland work. The Prize is made possible through the generous ongoing support of the Gallery’s Patron, John Leslie OBE.
Adriane Strampp is returning again this year to Art Central with Hill Smith Gallery for Hong Kong Art Week, along with gallery artists Melinda Schawel and Yanni Floros. Art Central will feature over 100 leading international galleries, 75% of which hail from the Asia Pacific.The Fair’s extensive gallery line-up will showcase striking works from across the globe, illustrating the diversity and prodigious talent of artists within today’s contemporary art market.
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.
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.

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.

‘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.’
