KYLIE BANYARD EXHIBITION AT CASTLEMAINE ART GALLERY UNTIL 31 JANUARY

January 19, 2021

The first exhibition in CAM’s Orbit program; a series of exhibitions by artists who live and work in Central Victoria. Kylie Banyard’s practice is grounded in painting and intersects with photography, video and sculpture, as well as fields such as architecture and education. In her work, she explores the utopian imagination and the history of experimental models for living and learning, creating images and spaces that question whether the faded optimism associated with discarded utopias of the early counterculture and radical technological and social experiments of the past can be regenerated through aesthetic experiences to poetic and critical effect. She creates images that offer…

ARRYN SNOWBALL EXHIBITION PREVIEWED IN ‘ART GUIDE’ BY TRACEY CLEMENT, NOV/DEC 20

November 29, 2020

Berlin-based Australian painter Arryn Snowball has recently worked with poets, dancers and musicians. Collaboration is intrinsic to his creative process. “A big part of art is sharing it with others. Painting is not only art while someone is looking at is; that is already a collaboration between the artist and audience,” Snowball explains. “I put my trust in process and follow where it leads. Process is at the heart of abstract painting.” Part of this process is keeping an open studio. “I open my studio door to a friend and they step into my practice. They bring their practice with…

AMBER WALLIS INTERVIEWED BY LEE MATTHEWS

November 25, 2020

Photography: Lisa Sorgini Amber Wallis carefully balances colour and stroke, always creating something compositionally beautiful and alluring. We were lucky enough to ask her a few questions about her paintings and consequently got to know a little bit more about herself. Wallis as a person is open, considerate and thoughtful, and knowing this about her we can only appreciate the reflective and personal nature of her art even more. Can you tell us a little bit about your background and how you got into painting? I grew up in New Zealand, my family grew weed and bartered services on Waiheke and…

KYLIE BANYARD EXHIBITION REVIEWED IN ‘THE AGE’ BY TIARNEY MIEKUS

November 21, 2020

In Kylie Banyard’s newest paintings the mood is simultaneously mystical, technicolour, strangely nostalgic and enduringly hopeful. While her latest oil and acrylic works emerged from interests in the experimental American art school Black Mountain College, which in the mid-20th century emphasised holistic learning, this isn’t necessarily clear. Yet the aura of the influence is apparent, particularly in the most compelling paintings that depict women working together in acts of toil and farming, their skin tinged by vivid pinks and blues, blending into the environment in which they work. Existing in luminous lighting, the women’s movements are choreographed in ways that…
