CELESTE CHANDLER’S EXHIBITION REVIEWED IN ‘THE AGE’ BY ROBERT NELSON

May 29, 2018

Shape shifting At Nicholas Thompson Gallery, Celeste Chandler also makes me think of riotous rituals of shape shifting, albeit in the demure language of realist painting. Her Ladies’ night shows the artist with male masks over her face or false limbs in front of her body; and a suite of photographs shows the artist with further foamy props, smothered in shaving cream, at times looking like some Greek philosopher from antiquity. These works have the same balance of solemnity and farce, candour and masquerade, bravura and banality that one sees in fibre, painting and video media in Mexico City, a place where…

CELESTE CHANDLER IN ART ALMANAC’S EXHIBITIONS

  Celeste Chandler’s solo exhibition ‘be my eyes’ pushes the limits of portraiture and traditional oil painting. Her introspective portraits conflate the boundaries between reality and illusion, the historical and the contemporary. Chandler directly responds to two anonymous historical portraits in the Bayside art collection, creating an intriguing and compelling installation of paintings that highlight the potential of self-representation and the fluidity of identity. ”be my eyes’ is a fascinating rumination on the legacy of figurative painting and the endurance of female creative expression through a contemporary lens.’ – Sophia Cai The Gallery at Bayside Arts & Cultural CentreUntil 6…

MIRANDA SKOCZEK FEATURED IN ‘THE DESIGN FILES’

March 23, 2018

Greatly inspired by the art of weaving, Miranda Skoczek finds herself drawn to rugs that hail from North Africa, particularly the Atlas region of Morocco, as inspiration. ‘I am taken by their chaotic configurations,’ Miranda says, ‘they remind me of the European Avant-Garde movement – COBRA – where experimentation was paramount.’ Despite her description of an ‘almost pious connection’ to her process-driven practice, Miranda shares this sense of freedom and intuitive experimentation in her work. In true Miranda style, this latest exhibition is bold, energetic and unapologetic.

KYLIE BANYARD EXHIBITION PREVIEWED IN ART ALMANAC

March 3, 2018

Kylie Banyard: The Improbable Outside 28 February 2018 | Art Almanac Kylie Banyard’s paintings for ‘The Improbable Outside’ consider philosopher Elizabeth Grosz’ idea of ‘outsideness’ – searching from an outward perspective for what one might not be able to see from the inside. ‘In the process of making these works I’ve tried to hover somewhere else for a while, in a state of unknowing, to make paintings in a more intuitive way,’ says the artist of the alluring and contemplative imagery on canvas and gouache papers she presents.
