During Melbourne’s austere lockdowns, Adriane Strampp was restricted to her Collingwood home for months at a time, separated from her studio in Fitzroy. In this forced stillness, she has created a new series of work that turns toward the subject of the domestic interior as a site for contemplation, studying the light changing through the seasons, and night light reflections on restless nights.

Pentimenti, Gallerysmith 3 Sep – 9 Oct 2021

Strampp’s images are so delicately and finely layered onto linen, that if the light falls at a certain angle a glimpse of something tangible can appear, then leave without a trace. At other times roads, rivers, distant lights, smoke and other signs of life come into view through painted swathes of canvas that cast shadow or emanate light. These tricks with materials and brush are what make her work so compelling. In them exists an otherness between truth and fiction. Are these places real or conjured from the imagination?

Look At/Look Through, 23 April – 12 May

In his 1991 book 'National Life and Landscapes: Australian Painting 1900-1940', Ian Burn wrote about Albert Namatjira's watercolour paintings that "the landscape itself is not the subject focused upon but instead reads as something one journeys through". Earlier in his 1989 work 'Homage to Albert (South through the Ranges, Heavitree Gap 1952)', Burn presented a broader, shorter version of this observation, "A LANDSCAPE IS NOT SOMETHING YOU LOOK AT BUT SOMETHING YOU LOOK THROUGH". Appearing as if a quote from Namatjira, Burn's sentence appears in capitals on paper beneath a reproduction of Namatjira's work on a transparent sheet above. When looking, the effect is twofold; the viewer literally 'looks through' the transparent landscape to 'look at' the text below. But the text also interrupts the viewer's ability to 'look through' the 'original' painting, which is what Burn proposes is the key aspect of Namatjira's work. The work therefore utilises the landscape but instead of presenting it, obstructs it and simulates the idea of looking at it. The viewer is not invited to navigate the terrain in the picture plane, but instead reminded that they are in an interior space, probably an art gallery, looking at an object. 'Homage to Albert' becomes a succinct visual representation of Burn's conclusion that "(i)n twentieth-century Australia, the idea of the landscape has become more important than the landscape itself. It serves to declare an idea of place, constantly redefining difference in a changing world. Look At/Look Through is an exhibition of works by 13 artists that explore the relationship between people and the landscape in various ways. In some works, figures, with their backs to us yet almost as surrogates for us, survey the landscape in front of them. In others, the viewer becomes the absent figure, with the work inviting them into another…

Established in 1947, the Mosman Art Prize is Australia's oldest and most prestigious local government art award, and worth $50,000.

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.

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

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. View catalogue here.

Luxation: King Street Gallery on William 24 April – May 19 2018

Luxation 24 April - 19 May This exhibition addresses themes of connection, dislocation and the pull to return to places once familiar. Coming from a peripatetic background there is a longing for familiarity and sameness however inevitably things are rarely as remembered. Rather than the traditional art historical landscape, this work explores aspects of a landscape remembered or places once visited, the memory of which remains long after, and the shifting experience of revisiting as an outsider. The horses return as metaphor for the artists's own restlessness and journeys of the past and of the future. View PDF catalogue here.

Art Central Hong Kong: 27 March – 1 April 2018

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. 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。 Enquiries: Hill Smith Gallery Booth A14: Margo Hill-Smith margohs@bigpond.com  | +61 402 231 517 | Art Central HK  ART CENTRAL 9 Lung Wo Road Central Harbourfront Hong Kong 27 March - 1 April First Night March 26 HILL SMITH GALLERY 113 Pirie Street Adelaide SA AUSTRALIA www.hillsmithgallery.com.au View catalogue here.

This Wild Song Fundraiser: 30 Jan – 3 Feb 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.

Pilgrimage: Hill Smith Gallery 21 October – 18 November 2017

In this latest collection of new work by Melbourne artist Adriane Strampp, Pilgrimage expands on the artist’s ongoing interest in connection, memory and spatial relationships, and in particular, our relationship to particular places or things meaningful to us. How do we remember the places we once knew? Fragments of memories reconstituted to a fluid fusion of elements that we recall, pieced together to recreate a new reality, landscapes made of multiple locations creating a universal sense of familiarity. In The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge,(1910), Rilke compares the collation of memories to the house: I never saw this strange dwelling again. Indeed, as I see it now, the way it appeared to my child’s eye, it is not a building, but is quite dissolved and distributed inside me: here one room, there another, and here a bit of corridor which, however, does not connect the two rooms, but is conserved in me in a fragmentary form. Thus the whole thing is scattered about inside me, the rooms, the stairs that descended with such ceremonial slowness, others, narrow cages that mounted in a spiral movement, in the darkness of which we advanced like the blood in our veins. Whilst continuing an ongoing interest in the landscape in terms of revisiting of places once familiar, Pilgrimage includes a more intimate look at connection through the interiors and personal possessions of other artists’ homes and studios. Both the interior and external landscapes take the position of observer separated by subtle barriers, shadows, reflections or distance, a reminder that we can only ever be the observer, not the participant in other people’s places.

Artist Profile – 22 March 2017

Uneasy Idyll - Hill Smith Gallery at Art Central for Hong Kong Art Week. Playing with form and figure, Uneasy Idyll presents four artists who explore the ambiguous and sometimes uncanny relationship between aspects of the land and the figure. On exhibition currently at Hill Smith Gallery as part of Art Central Hong Kong, the gallery has selected four artists from the South side of Australia – Deidre But-Husaim (SA), Matt R. Martin (VIC), Shannon Smiley (VIC) and Adriane Strampp (VIC). Whilst distinct in their own practices, each artist plays with the emotion of the figure or the landscape and the potential connection this can hold with the viewer. Deidre But-Husaim is known for her diverse works, focused upon the very nature of looking and making rather than solely the concept. Thus her works range from depicting people experiencing a work of art or might be purely an investigation into a phenomenon of nature. Whilst Deidre switches between man and nature, Matt R. Martin is focussed purely on the subtle nuances of human gesture. Stemming from his mother’s passion for classical ballet, he continues a love for the capability of the human form. His works present the body in strange formations and orientations, reconstructing and depicting body language. Shifting the gaze to the landscape Adriane Strampp paints tale of the Romantic landscape. Lyrically abstract, there is a sense of an in-between or passing time in her transient works. Strong washes of colour vary in tone across the canvas, painting an emotional narrative. In subtle contrast Shannon Smiley is drawn to the rough and cheeky urban setting – depicting a landscape where nature has taken back over the city. There is a tension between the natural and man-made that Smiley encourages, with the centre of the metropolis presented as unruly and overgrown. Somewhere…

HILL SMITH GALLERY, UNEASY IDYLL  不安的牧歌 DEIDRE BUT-HUSAIM, MATT R. MARTIN, SHANNON SMILEY, ADRIANE STRAMPP 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.

BATHURST REGIONAL ART GALLERY 70 - 78 Keppel St, Bathurst, NSW 2795   |   (02) 6333 6555   |   www.bathurstart.com.au   The Hill End Artists in Residence Program has its genesis in August 1947 when Donald Friend and Russell Drysdale made a trip to explore to the former gold rush towns of Sofala and Hill End. Friend was so engaged by the character of Sofala and Hill End, that he eventually bought a little cottage in Hill End now called Murrays Cottage and lived there with his partner Donald Murray for a number of years. Drysdale visited regularly, as did Margaret Olley, Jean Bellette, Paul Haefliger, David Strachan and Jeffrey Smart. Eventually Jean Bellette and Paul Haefliger bought a cottage which is now known as Haefligers in the town. These artists are often referred to as the 'first wave' of Hill End artists. In 1999, under the auspices of Bathurst City Council and Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, the Hill End Artists in Residence Program was officially launched. Adriane Strampp is currently living and working at Haefliger's Cottage, an online diary can be seen here.

Rosafarben: King Street Gallery on William 26 April – 21 May 2016

THE WAY TO ROSAFARBEN When art critic for New York magazine, Jerry Saltz, saw a reproduction from Adriane Strampp’s recent series of landscapes he wrote that it seemed to him to describe a ‘Metaphysical Highway’.[1] More precisely, since they acknowledge no deity, these works insinuate a circuitous passage: from detailed Victorian dresses, to flowers on textile, to accurate yet unnervingly humanoid animals, eventually arriving at a one-hued, contrived, rather than observed destination that recalls Jean Baudrillard’s notion: ‘the simulation of something that is real by proxy; something which never really existed.’[2] At the same time they counter the postmodern preoccupation with the end of aesthetics.[3] Running through diverse subject matters is a mastership of her medium—a delicate touch with a tough or tragic commentary—despite their femininity. Among the Victorian ball gowns painted from 1991 to 1998, that are historically a female preoccupation, is a wedding dress without either a bride to wear it or a groom to marry. Complete with finely described bodices and expanded skirts, these dresses stand disarmingly, surveying rolling fields and hedgerows that customarily convey romantic sentiments, but here summon an existential air. Albeit with supreme subtlety, this landscape might just consume them. A stay in Umbria in 1998 led to the analysis of the Renaissance art seen there.[4] Consequently, conventional composition was disrupted to produce a divided picture comprising details of period clothing, again with an unseen wearer, and close-ups of fabric detail. A not quite hyperreal white hare also takes a prominent role in a re-engineered landscape in which flowers occupy an unnatural position across the canvas. In the next series, enormous flower heads, sometimes without stems, sit lonely and transcendent, as if sensing a painful fate as they sink into the canvas like ash into soil. In 2011 Strampp was offered a residency with…

The Landscape Remembered: Jan Manton 9 September – 3 October

Transition 2015 oil on linen 152 x 152 cm This new work by Adriane Strampp continues to explore the remembered landscape; fragmented views of journeys made reflecting Strampp’s own peripatetic upbringing and sense of dislocation. It reflects upon the passage of time, absence, memory and loss, portrayed in largely monochromatic, improbable colour. The work posits our own tendency to colour our memories and reflections. As Strampp describes a sense of transience and motion when there is no final destination, we are taken along for the ride, fleeting glimpses of the passing landscape that give us non-specific views that nevertheless involve a sense of familiarity. It is the movement, the lack of connection that concerns her, rather than the traditional art historical landscape. Occasional reflections are placed across works such as Rise 2015, deliberate visual barriers, so separating the viewer from the landscape, transforming them instead into an objective observer. As with her earlier work, subtle visual barriers at odds with the image are frequently employed as a means of creating uncertainty and unrest. Strampp’s surface is a time-consuming construction involving the use of wax and delicate colour washes that depict the hazy, ephemeral and elusive nature of memory. As paint is allowed to run and dissolve there is a melancholic sense of transience and at the same time, in keeping with the notion of fleeting memory, other areas are painted in detail. The strong hues are used for their capacity to elicit emotional responses, as well as to capture the subjective nature of memory. Download catalogue here.

Vorbeigehen: Fort Delta 30 April – 9 May

Morgen 2015 oil and wax on linen 50 x 50 cm In 2012, Adriane Strampp re-visited a northern part of the USA, just above the Great Lakes, where she had spent a portion of her childhood. From the car she was travelling in, Strampp photo-documented the nine-hour road trip to her past. Out of the hundreds of photo that she took from first light through to dusk, Strampp selected only a few to use as structures to diverge from and create the works that form Vorbeigehen. Vorbeigehen is an exhibition series of faintly painted and distanced landscapes. Some large in scale, surrounding and enveloping us in their eminence, others are smaller and dense in shadow. In these paintings, the focus is not on the landscape itself but rather on our deeper, ephemeral relationship with memory and the experience, anticipation, and expectations of revisiting a place once loved. The visually immersive paintings attempt to materialise intangible, visceral experiences that bleed into hallucinations of memory and imagination. In this regard, Strampp’s work has a strong correlation to the writing of Susan Sontag. In her 2003 book, Regarding The Pain of Others, Sontag observed that memory alters an image according to its need to confer an emblematic status on things we feel worthy of remembering. One may feel shame, fear, anxiety, sadness or loss upon remembering a past and it’s associated vernacular or ‘landscape’ of imagery we remember it by. Download catalogue here.

Mirror 2014 selected for the Adelaide Perry Prize for Drawing. Charcoal and wax on board, 50 x 50cm Adelaide Perry Gallery The Croydon Centre for Art Presbyterian Ladies' College, Sydney Boundary St Croydon NSW 2132   The Adelaide Perry Prize for Drawing Exhibition of Finalists 2015 will be officially opened at Adelaide Perry Gallery on Friday 27 February at 7 pm. Special guest speaker Mr Glen Barkley, curator, will make the opening announcements and this year’s judge, Mr Peter Kingston AM, will present this year’s winner with the $25,000 acquisitive prize. From over 480 entries Peter Kingston created a shortlist 43 artworks. In a statement about the process Mr Kingston said: In judging the drawings I have been guided by the words of Vincent Van Gogh: ‘The figure of a labourer - some furrows in a ploughed field - a bit of sand, sea and sky -are serious subjects, so difficult, but at the same time so beautiful, that it is indeed worth while to devote one’s life to the task of expressing the poetry hidden in them.’ And my friend, the late Martin Sharp: ‘To make visible the invisible.’ This is no mean task to achieve, as one not only has to actually commence work but also leave one’s self open to chance and unexpected diversions along the way. To make a record of this journey is what I was looking out for. The finalists I have chosen have, in my view and experience, come some way towards achieving this.

The Northsider – Offspring Artist 20 October 2014

The Northsider Arts & Lifestyle Text by Melanie Dimmitt Melbourne-based artist Adriane Strampp surrendered her home to a television series, incidentally becoming owner of one of the most sought-after lounge rooms in the country (at least, by a legion of Offspring fans). Her Collingwood dwelling (a coat hanger-factory turned two-storey warehouse) boasts an interior and an eclecticism bold enough to echo the chaos of the show’s heroine, Nina Proudman, and Strampp has decided to let it spill out – producing a limited edition of prints straight from the walls of the highly televised abode.

Crisp Magazine – September 2013

Full link to magazine interview and images here. Isn’t it incredible how light has the ability to change ones appearance and character completely? The illuminated service station you purchased a packet of gum at this morning seems much more dire past a certain time, and all of the creaks and squeaks that seem to rest in between your walls during the day find satisfaction in giving you the heebie-jeebies in the early hours of the morning, are two ideal examples of this. But when Melbourne artist Adriane Strampp exposed the overcast, murky surroundings we recognise in our daily lives on canvas, she determined that beauty truly can be seen - even in the darkness. Strampp had always been interested in filling in the gaps; her childhood consisting of colouring books and dazzling presentations - the young creative often paying little attention to the written aspect of her assignments. Her correlation with hues and shades is evident in her exquisite oil paintings; a traditional art form Strampp is determined to preserve. “There’s sensuality to painting unlike drawing, printmaking or working digitally,” she states, “which tend to be more technical, and often employ harsher methods and materials.” The fluidity, tactility, and versatility of painting are three elements that Strampp has found herself falling in love with. There’s something admirable and humble about the way Strampp connects with her individual pieces. Every morning, after picking up a take-away coffee, Strampp spends ten minutes simply observing her work before continuing to paint. She believes that time is needed to reconnect. The mood upheld in Strampp’s elegant paintings is a true indication of the frame of mind as preserved by the artist. Her art is a true indication of her awareness of the world that surrounds her and its alluring splendour, as seen through her…

Passages of Time: Hill Smith Gallery 27 April – 20 May

Brume 2012 oil on linen 152 x 152 cm   Hill Smith Gallery 113 Pirie Street Adelaide South Australia 5000     Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5.30pm Sunday 2-5pm       Passages of Time is Adriane Strampp's first exhibition in Adelaide since 1999, and is an overview of recent work. It includes paintings from both the horse and landscape series as well as several drawings. Strampp’s new work continues to explore the poetic and the romantic, whilst at the same time referencing elements of her earlier work. Over the last six years Strampp has reduced her palette to quiet greys built of many thin washes of colour, creating a sense of stillness and shadow, reinforcing her interest in both spatial relationships, surface materiality and the presence of absence. As a result her landscapes have become ethereal and ambiguous, their haziness leaves the viewer uncertain of what they are seeing – trees in the mist or shadows suspended in particles of light, they appear familiar but not specific. The statues refer to her early and popular dress series, weathered and sometimes damaged they remain strong and heroic, a contemplation of mortality and fallen ideals. The animals she chooses to draw and paint are often vulnerable, yet they too carry a stoic, if guarded strength. There is a sense of timelessness in this new work, and a sense of maturation as Strampp attempts to address the importance of connection and communication through her work.

Imagery of animals dating back thousands of years attest to their relevance in the changing cultures of all societies. We have worshipped, befriended, eaten, abused and idolized the beast. Animals of all kinds are our work mates, companions, guides, sustenance, entertainment and sacrifices.

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.

Adelaide Perry Prize 24 February – 24 March 2012

Adriane Strampp's work Observer Observed has been selected for the 2012 Adelaide Perry Prize for Drawing, judged by Sydney art critic John McDonald. Adelaide Perry Gallery The Croydon Centre for Art Presbyterian Ladies' College, Sydney Boundary St Croydon NSW 2132 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. Adriane Strampp January 2012

Exquisite Corpse at Fulton Street Collective, Chicago 2 – 17 September 2011

Curated by Jenny Lam, Exquisite Corpse is an independently run art show that features works across all media—illustration, photography, animatronics and pillow-making… and everything in between—by 40 artists from Chicago, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Amsterdam, and Melbourne. Arranged into groups and pairs, these artists—most of whom were strangers to one another before this project—were given one month to create new art, with no limitations or rules other than to work together. Some groups adhered to the exquisite corpse tradition, while others redefined the very idea of collaboration. Melbourne artists Adriane Strampp, Irene Wellm and Kirsten Perry have put together a drawing, each working on their section without having seen the other artists section, until the work was completed. Exquisite Corpse is located on the second floor of: Fulton Street Collective 2000 W. Fulton St. Chicago, IL 60612 847.942.8956

Five Miles from the Sea, Victoria University 19 April – 13 May 2011

Artspace Level 17 Victoria University Melbourne 3000 Five Miles from the Sea is a group show curated by Geoff Tolchard. Five Miles from the Sea is a look at the incursion (Five miles from the Sea) of non-indigenous Australians and their resulting mark on the land. Whether it is the erosion of the land or the erosion of the quarter acre block, how are we shaping and living in the hinterland? Who lives five miles from the sea? What does it look like though the eyes of ten diverse artists, some from different parts of the globe, who have indeed made Australia their home? Adriane Strampp : Artist Statement In considering the impact of European settlement in Australia, one of the most invasive and damaging migrants (other than European man), is the rabbit. Although originally arriving with the First Fleet in1788, it was Thomas Austin, formerly of Somerset, who is held historically responsible for the spread of rabbits when he released 24 rabbits and 5 hares at his property Barwon Park, near Geelong in 1859. A lack of predators and mild winters provided an ideal climate for year-round breeding and by the 1900’s the feral rabbit population had reached plague proportions across Australia. Despite the rabbits’ devastating impact on native flora and the environment, the introduction of foxes as a remedy only worsened the situation as the foxes found indigenous birds and marsupials easier prey. In 1907 the infamous rabbit-proof fence was built in WA, a futile attempt to control the spread of rabbits, and later in 1950 Myxomatosis was introduced, causing a slow and painful death that ultimately the rabbits became immune to. In 1863 the Acclimatisation Society of Victoria set up on Phillip Island a breeding colony for hares sent from London by the Zoological Society. Although introduced…

Erlösung: The Animal Gaze, dianne tanzer gallery + projects 2 – 23 April 2011

Dianne Tanzer Gallery + Projects 2 - 23 April 2011 108 - 110 Gertrude Street Fitzroy VIC 3065 Opening hours: Mon - Fri 10am - 5pm Sat 12pm - 5pm Hares, horses and stags have long featured in Strampp’s work, images of the hunted and the haunted, symbols of both strength and vulnerability. In conjunction with Strampp's 2011 residency at Sydney's Taronga Zoo, Erlösung: The Animal Gaze is a project drawing exhibition that considers the animal gaze, and the relationship between the observer and the observed. The animals in this exhibition are not cute; rather they are solid, monumental creatures drawn life-size, yet paradoxically they remain fragile and exposed. Their wary gaze regards us, guarded and measured, and they remain ‘in absentia’. In our desire for connection we long for our gaze to be returned, but as they look through or past us our projections are mirrored back, only to remind us of our imposition on their world.

Artists begin the residency with an overnight stay at the Zoo’s Roar and Snore campsite, meeting the keepers and their charges, exploring the Zoo after dark, sleeping in luxury tents and feeding the animals in the morning. Artists are provided with a special pass to visit and work as much as they wish over a three-month period, including access before opening hours. Artists participating donate a work created during the residency to help raise funds for the Taronga Foundation's ongoing conservation endeavours.

The poetics of connection: Greenhill Galleries, Perth 21 May – 5 June, 2010

The Poetics of Connection 21 May – 5 June, 2010 Greenhill Galleries 6 Gugeri Street Claremont Western Australia 6010 Greenhill Galleries welcome the hauntingly talented artist, Adriane Strampp, with a series of refined and sensitively captured images, inspired by the natural world. Studying the form of the horse, amongst other creatures, with layer upon layer of shadows, Strampp’s dreamlike images pose the question: Is this reality or is this all imagined? Moving away from her previous style of rich Renaissance colours and intensely detailed studies of ancient dresses, landscapes and lifestyles stretching back from the 18th Century to the Renaissance era, Strampp has delicately touched upon a rather beautiful and deeply moving ageless darkness, compelling the viewer further and inquisitively into this enchanted land. Her oil paintings have a sense of unique detailing, exploring the graceful lines, shapes and shadows found only in nature. Yet the hazy texture and outlines of her work are rather like watching the dusk settle, that unique time of day where everything comes alive. This exhibition is sure to enthral and captivate.

Imaging the gap: King Street Gallery on William 4 – 29 May 2010

King Street Gallery on William 177 William St Darlinghurst NSW 2010 Australia Opening times: 10am - 6pm Tuesday - Saturday 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.

Painthing (as one): AEAF 16 April – 5 May 2010

Australian Experimental Art Foundation Lion Arts Centre, North Tce [West End] Adelaide South Australia Tuesday – Friday 11am-5pm Saturday 2-5pm Artists have been invited to respond to seven considerations regarding the compelling nature of painting. The title refers to the whole of this exhibition as constituting a discreet body of ‘painting’, one that might inclusively construct, amongst other things, a local constellation. This constellation might then be referred to as ‘painting’, and be located within a local universe called ‘art’; in time this constellation might become known, but probably only to its very particular inhabitants, as the ‘painthing constellation’. Painting. Painting, pain thing: painthing. Maybe this has happened to you too; you’re driving along a suburban street or you’re reading the label on the back of a tin of crushed tomatoes somewhere in a dim corner of a supermarket and suddenly a word, actually any word but this time it’s this word, gets caught on the sieve-like structure that divides your perception of ordinary action from an extraordinary something. Immediately the word as-it-is jumps out at you and you see it in its entire absurdity, its un-meaning, its limp body superimposed on the frenetic buzziness of the universal attraction and repulsion going on all around you. Then you begin to examine it, prod it for signs of its former life. Nothing. Something very surprising suddenly happens; its body becomes slowly absorbed into the phrenesis of action and reaction, memory and meaning, membrane and pulsing core. It continues to offer itself to this whole until the shape you once knew emerges elsewhere as another; different, but somehow the same. And then you try and understand (what else can you do, you’re stuck in a long check-out queue) how this word-—this painful thing actually—can simultaneously be both itself and other. You look…

Warrnambool Art Gallery – Artist Talk 30 Sep 2023

Rachael Robb in-conversation with artists Adriane Strampp and Ebony Truscott 11am - 12pm at Warrnambool Art Gallery Join artist Rachael Robb as she deep dives into painting techniques, inspiration and meaning behind her works in the exhibition I have been here before, with fellow artists and painters Adriane Strampp and Ebony Truscott. Adriane Strampp completed a BA in Fine Art at Prahran College (1983) and an MFA at Monash University (2010), and has held 30 solo exhibitions as well as participating in many group shows.

Adriane Strampp is represented by King Street Gallery on William (NSW) and Jan Manton Gallery (QLD). Ebony Truscott is a Warrnambool born, Melbourne based artist and has completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting, 1997) and a Bachelor of Fine Art (First Class Honours, 2003) at Victorian College of the Arts.

Pentimenti, Gallerysmith 3 Sep – 9 Oct 2021

Strampp’s images are so delicately and finely layered onto linen, that if the light falls at a certain angle a glimpse of something tangible can appear, then leave without a trace. At other times roads, rivers, distant lights, smoke and other signs of life come into view through painted swathes of canvas that cast shadow or emanate light. These tricks with materials and brush are what make her work so compelling. In them exists an otherness between truth and fiction. Are these places real or conjured from the imagination?

Look At/Look Through, 23 April – 12 May

In his 1991 book 'National Life and Landscapes: Australian Painting 1900-1940', Ian Burn wrote about Albert Namatjira's watercolour paintings that "the landscape itself is not the subject focused upon but instead reads as something one journeys through". Earlier in his 1989 work 'Homage to Albert (South through the Ranges, Heavitree Gap 1952)', Burn presented a broader, shorter version of this observation, "A LANDSCAPE IS NOT SOMETHING YOU LOOK AT BUT SOMETHING YOU LOOK THROUGH". Appearing as if a quote from Namatjira, Burn's sentence appears in capitals on paper beneath a reproduction of Namatjira's work on a transparent sheet above. When looking, the effect is twofold; the viewer literally 'looks through' the transparent landscape to 'look at' the text below. But the text also interrupts the viewer's ability to 'look through' the 'original' painting, which is what Burn proposes is the key aspect of Namatjira's work. The work therefore utilises the landscape but instead of presenting it, obstructs it and simulates the idea of looking at it. The viewer is not invited to navigate the terrain in the picture plane, but instead reminded that they are in an interior space, probably an art gallery, looking at an object. 'Homage to Albert'…

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

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. View catalogue here.

Luxation: King Street Gallery on William 24 April – May 19 2018

Luxation 24 April - 19 May This exhibition addresses themes of connection, dislocation and the pull to return to places once familiar. Coming from a peripatetic background there is a longing for familiarity and sameness however inevitably things are rarely as remembered. Rather than the traditional art historical landscape, this work explores aspects of a landscape remembered or places once visited, the memory of which remains long after, and the shifting experience of revisiting as an outsider. The horses return as metaphor for the artists's own restlessness and journeys of the past and of the future. View PDF catalogue here.

Art Central Hong Kong: 27 March – 1 April 2018

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. 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。 Enquiries: Hill Smith Gallery Booth A14: Margo Hill-Smith margohs@bigpond.com  | +61 402 231 517 | Art Central HK  ART CENTRAL 9 Lung Wo Road Central Harbourfront Hong Kong 27 March - 1 April First Night March 26 HILL SMITH GALLERY 113 Pirie Street Adelaide SA AUSTRALIA…

This Wild Song Fundraiser: 30 Jan – 3 Feb 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.

Pilgrimage: Hill Smith Gallery 21 October – 18 November 2017

In this latest collection of new work by Melbourne artist Adriane Strampp, Pilgrimage expands on the artist’s ongoing interest in connection, memory and spatial relationships, and in particular, our relationship to particular places or things meaningful to us. How do we remember the places we once knew? Fragments of memories reconstituted to a fluid fusion of elements that we recall, pieced together to recreate a new reality, landscapes made of multiple locations creating a universal sense of familiarity. In The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge,(1910), Rilke compares the collation of memories to the house: I never saw this strange dwelling again. Indeed, as I see it now, the way it appeared to my child’s eye, it is not a building, but is quite dissolved and distributed inside me: here one room, there another, and here a bit of corridor which, however, does not connect the two rooms, but is conserved in me in a fragmentary form. Thus the whole thing is scattered about inside me, the rooms, the stairs that descended with such ceremonial slowness, others, narrow cages that mounted in a spiral movement, in the darkness of which we advanced like the blood in our veins. Whilst continuing an…

Artist Profile – 22 March 2017

Uneasy Idyll - Hill Smith Gallery at Art Central for Hong Kong Art Week. Playing with form and figure, Uneasy Idyll presents four artists who explore the ambiguous and sometimes uncanny relationship between aspects of the land and the figure. On exhibition currently at Hill Smith Gallery as part of Art Central Hong Kong, the gallery has selected four artists from the South side of Australia – Deidre But-Husaim (SA), Matt R. Martin (VIC), Shannon Smiley (VIC) and Adriane Strampp (VIC). Whilst distinct in their own practices, each artist plays with the emotion of the figure or the landscape and the potential connection this can hold with the viewer. Deidre But-Husaim is known for her diverse works, focused upon the very nature of looking and making rather than solely the concept. Thus her works range from depicting people experiencing a work of art or might be purely an investigation into a phenomenon of nature. Whilst Deidre switches between man and nature, Matt R. Martin is focussed purely on the subtle nuances of human gesture. Stemming from his mother’s passion for classical ballet, he continues a love for the capability of the human form. His works present the body in strange formations…

HILL SMITH GALLERY, UNEASY IDYLL  不安的牧歌 DEIDRE BUT-HUSAIM, MATT R. MARTIN, SHANNON SMILEY, ADRIANE STRAMPP 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.

The Landscape Remembered: Jan Manton 9 September – 3 October

Transition 2015 oil on linen 152 x 152 cm This new work by Adriane Strampp continues to explore the remembered landscape; fragmented views of journeys made reflecting Strampp’s own peripatetic upbringing and sense of dislocation. It reflects upon the passage of time, absence, memory and loss, portrayed in largely monochromatic, improbable colour. The work posits our own tendency to colour our memories and reflections. As Strampp describes a sense of transience and motion when there is no final destination, we are taken along for the ride, fleeting glimpses of the passing landscape that give us non-specific views that nevertheless involve a sense of familiarity. It is the movement, the lack of connection that concerns her, rather than the traditional art historical landscape. Occasional reflections are placed across works such as Rise 2015, deliberate visual barriers, so separating the viewer from the landscape, transforming them instead into an objective observer. As with her earlier work, subtle visual barriers at odds with the image are frequently employed as a means of creating uncertainty and unrest. Strampp’s surface is a time-consuming construction involving the use of wax and delicate colour washes that depict the hazy, ephemeral and elusive nature of memory. As paint is…

Vorbeigehen: Fort Delta 30 April – 9 May

Morgen 2015 oil and wax on linen 50 x 50 cm In 2012, Adriane Strampp re-visited a northern part of the USA, just above the Great Lakes, where she had spent a portion of her childhood. From the car she was travelling in, Strampp photo-documented the nine-hour road trip to her past. Out of the hundreds of photo that she took from first light through to dusk, Strampp selected only a few to use as structures to diverge from and create the works that form Vorbeigehen. Vorbeigehen is an exhibition series of faintly painted and distanced landscapes. Some large in scale, surrounding and enveloping us in their eminence, others are smaller and dense in shadow. In these paintings, the focus is not on the landscape itself but rather on our deeper, ephemeral relationship with memory and the experience, anticipation, and expectations of revisiting a place once loved. The visually immersive paintings attempt to materialise intangible, visceral experiences that bleed into hallucinations of memory and imagination. In this regard, Strampp’s work has a strong correlation to the writing of Susan Sontag. In her 2003 book, Regarding The Pain of Others, Sontag observed that memory alters an image according to its need…

From over 480 entries Peter Kingston created a shortlist 43 artworks. In a statement about the process Mr Kingston said: In judging the drawings I have been guided by the words of Vincent Van Gogh: ‘The figure of a labourer - some furrows in a ploughed field - a bit of sand, sea and sky -are serious subjects, so difficult, but at the same time so beautiful, that it is indeed worth while to devote one’s life to the task of expressing the poetry hidden in them.’ And my friend, the late Martin Sharp: ‘To make visible the invisible.’ This is no mean task to achieve, as one not only has to…

The Northsider – Offspring Artist 20 October 2014

The Northsider Arts & Lifestyle Text by Melanie Dimmitt Melbourne-based artist Adriane Strampp surrendered her home to a television series, incidentally becoming owner of one of the most sought-after lounge rooms in the country (at least, by a legion of Offspring fans). Her Collingwood dwelling (a coat hanger-factory turned two-storey warehouse) boasts an interior and an eclecticism bold enough to echo the chaos of the show’s heroine, Nina Proudman, and Strampp has decided to let it spill out – producing a limited edition of prints straight from the walls of the highly televised abode.

Crisp Magazine – September 2013

Full link to magazine interview and images here. Isn’t it incredible how light has the ability to change ones appearance and character completely? The illuminated service station you purchased a packet of gum at this morning seems much more dire past a certain time, and all of the creaks and squeaks that seem to rest in between your walls during the day find satisfaction in giving you the heebie-jeebies in the early hours of the morning, are two ideal examples of this. But when Melbourne artist Adriane Strampp exposed the overcast, murky surroundings we recognise in our daily lives on canvas, she determined that beauty truly can be seen - even in the darkness. Strampp had always been interested in filling in the gaps; her childhood consisting of colouring books and dazzling presentations - the young creative often paying little attention to the written aspect of her assignments. Her correlation with hues and shades is evident in her exquisite oil paintings; a traditional art form Strampp is determined to preserve. “There’s sensuality to painting unlike drawing, printmaking or working digitally,” she states, “which tend to be more technical, and often employ harsher methods and materials.” The fluidity, tactility, and versatility…

Passages of Time: Hill Smith Gallery 27 April – 20 May

Brume 2012 oil on linen 152 x 152 cm   Hill Smith Gallery 113 Pirie Street Adelaide South Australia 5000     Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5.30pm Sunday 2-5pm       Passages of Time is Adriane Strampp's first exhibition in Adelaide since 1999, and is an overview of recent work. It includes paintings from both the horse and landscape series as well as several drawings. Strampp’s new work continues to explore the poetic and the romantic, whilst at the same time referencing elements of her earlier work. Over the last six years Strampp has reduced her palette to quiet greys built of many thin washes of colour, creating a sense of stillness and shadow, reinforcing her interest in both spatial relationships, surface materiality and the presence of absence. As a result her landscapes have become ethereal and ambiguous, their haziness leaves the viewer uncertain of what they are seeing – trees in the mist or shadows suspended in particles of light, they appear familiar but not specific. The statues refer to her early and popular dress series, weathered and sometimes damaged they remain strong and heroic, a contemplation of mortality and fallen ideals. The animals she chooses to draw and paint are…

Animals have played a significant role in the development of society [since] before the written word. Imagery of animals dating back thousands of years attest to their relevance in the changing cultures of all societies. We have worshipped, befriended, eaten, abused and idolized the beast. Animals of all kinds are our work mates, companions, guides, sustenance, entertainment and sacrifices. The Animal Show pays homage to our adoration of the animal and presents over 20 artist’s view of feathered, furry, hairy and scaly creatures.

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.

Adelaide Perry Prize 24 February – 24 March 2012

Adriane Strampp's work Observer Observed has been selected for the 2012 Adelaide Perry Prize for Drawing, judged by Sydney art critic John McDonald. Adelaide Perry Gallery The Croydon Centre for Art Presbyterian Ladies' College, Sydney Boundary St Croydon NSW 2132 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…

Curated by Jenny Lam, Exquisite Corpse is an independently run art show that features works across all media—illustration, photography, animatronics and pillow-making… and everything in between—by 40 artists from Chicago, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Amsterdam, and Melbourne. Arranged into groups and pairs, these artists—most of whom were strangers to one another before this project—were given one month to create new art, with no limitations or rules other than to work together. Some groups adhered to the exquisite corpse tradition, while others redefined the very idea of collaboration. Melbourne artists Adriane Strampp, Irene Wellm and Kirsten Perry have put together a drawing, each working on their section without having seen the other artists section, until the work was completed. Exquisite Corpse is located on the second floor of: Fulton Street Collective 2000 W. Fulton St. Chicago, IL 60612 847.942.8956

Five Miles from the Sea, Victoria University 19 April – 13 May 2011

Artspace Level 17 Victoria University Melbourne 3000 Five Miles from the Sea is a group show curated by Geoff Tolchard. Five Miles from the Sea is a look at the incursion (Five miles from the Sea) of non-indigenous Australians and their resulting mark on the land. Whether it is the erosion of the land or the erosion of the quarter acre block, how are we shaping and living in the hinterland? Who lives five miles from the sea? What does it look like though the eyes of ten diverse artists, some from different parts of the globe, who have indeed made Australia their home? Adriane Strampp : Artist Statement In considering the impact of European settlement in Australia, one of the most invasive and damaging migrants (other than European man), is the rabbit. Although originally arriving with the First Fleet in1788, it was Thomas Austin, formerly of Somerset, who is held historically responsible for the spread of rabbits when he released 24 rabbits and 5 hares at his property Barwon Park, near Geelong in 1859. A lack of predators and mild winters provided an ideal climate for year-round breeding and by the 1900’s the feral rabbit population had reached plague…

Erlösung: The Animal Gaze, dianne tanzer gallery + projects 2 – 23 April 2011

Dianne Tanzer Gallery + Projects 2 - 23 April 2011 108 - 110 Gertrude Street Fitzroy VIC 3065 Opening hours: Mon - Fri 10am - 5pm Sat 12pm - 5pm Hares, horses and stags have long featured in Strampp’s work, images of the hunted and the haunted, symbols of both strength and vulnerability. In conjunction with Strampp's 2011 residency at Sydney's Taronga Zoo, Erlösung: The Animal Gaze is a project drawing exhibition that considers the animal gaze, and the relationship between the observer and the observed. The animals in this exhibition are not cute; rather they are solid, monumental creatures drawn life-size, yet paradoxically they remain fragile and exposed. Their wary gaze regards us, guarded and measured, and they remain ‘in absentia’. In our desire for connection we long for our gaze to be returned, but as they look through or past us our projections are mirrored back, only to remind us of our imposition on their world.

The poetics of connection: Greenhill Galleries, Perth 21 May – 5 June, 2010

The Poetics of Connection 21 May – 5 June, 2010 Greenhill Galleries 6 Gugeri Street Claremont Western Australia 6010 Greenhill Galleries welcome the hauntingly talented artist, Adriane Strampp, with a series of refined and sensitively captured images, inspired by the natural world. Studying the form of the horse, amongst other creatures, with layer upon layer of shadows, Strampp’s dreamlike images pose the question: Is this reality or is this all imagined? Moving away from her previous style of rich Renaissance colours and intensely detailed studies of ancient dresses, landscapes and lifestyles stretching back from the 18th Century to the Renaissance era, Strampp has delicately touched upon a rather beautiful and deeply moving ageless darkness, compelling the viewer further and inquisitively into this enchanted land. Her oil paintings have a sense of unique detailing, exploring the graceful lines, shapes and shadows found only in nature. Yet the hazy texture and outlines of her work are rather like watching the dusk settle, that unique time of day where everything comes alive. This exhibition is sure to enthral and captivate.
