In his 1991 book 'National Life and Landscapes: Australian Painting 1900-1940', Ian Burn wrote about…
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.
