Istoria

In this new exhibition Strampp continues to work with a limited palette, focusing on the ambiguities of spatial perception, history and connection.

Included in this exhibition are two works referencing Strampp’s early dress series. The landscapes have developed a deeper space than previous work, whilst the animals within, (a result of a residency at Taronga Zoo in 2011) hold their own, survivors of a rapidly changing landscape.

This exhibition also includes a new series of smaller works, Memorium, that further explore spatial relationships and connection through surface materiality, with the use of paint, wax, paper, mirror and lead.

Observer observed is one of several drawings produced during a residency at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo in 2011. The subject is Birani, a Malayan Tapir who resides there.

My work has always been concerned with the connection between strength and fragility, the tangible and the intangible, and the presence of absence. From the early dress paintings of the 1980’s through to the current animal works I have explored that which remains ‘in absentia’: the body from the dresses, the gaze between the animal and the viewer. In looking at us the animals remain ‘in absentia’. Rarely does their gaze meet ours directly. In the desire for a reciprocal gaze we project our own emotions and interpretations, however the animals look beyond us and through us as we the observers seek momentary connection. Instead our projections are mirrored back to us, and their gaze reminds us of our imposition on their world.

The drawing has several ‘ghost’ images of the animal in the act of walking and is a reference to Muybridge’s photographs. The use of multiple movements echoes the shift of looking and being looked at. The observer observed.

“An iconic, enigmatic work that reminds me of the enquiry that Durer was capable of. The artist placed the hare in a believable space without rendering a background. Placing all the importance on the animal itself.”

Opening times:

Today Adriane Strampp’s work takes another look at the horse and the landscape, in a quieter and more contemplative manner, together with the use of a limited palette. Her work continues to explore the intangible and evocative, that communicates before it is understood, and the importance of and relationship between scale, surface and the poetic image through a method of layering and reduction that reflects the experience of connection, through history on either a personal or broader level. Subject and shadow are indeterminate, and the viewer is drawn into the work to decide between what is ‘real’ and what is not. More importantly, it is hoped that the viewer will experience a connection of experience through the work.
