Sean Curry Exhibition
'After the Fall' Paintings and Drawings
Wednesday 5 July - Tuesday 11 July 2017
Opening Saturday 8 July 2017 at 1.30pm
Gallery: Hammond and McCubbin
Untitled - Sean Curry
Born in 1998 in Melbourne, 'After the Fall' is Sean's first solo exhibition.
Working in a variety of mixed mediums, his work encapsulates internal chaos and defiant quietness which brings to the viewer a brief, indefinite, interval of time.
Sean's paintings and drawings are a collection of such moments of mindscapes in movement and space.
Enchanted Dream Exhibition
Wednesday 19 July 2017 - Tuesday 25 July 2017
Opening: Thursday 20 July 2017 at 2.00pm
Gallery: Frater, Hammond and McCubbin
This group of artists includes five talented artists from China - Shuiliang Zhai, Jun Wang, Leslie Zhang, Qing Zhan and Xia Ye, who work in their fields of art and have their own unique artistic visual language.
The artists use distinctive individual colour, form, space and light to express their dialogue with the world and continue to pursue the enchanted dreams on the art road.
Shuiliang Zhai - pastel on paper? - Three Pools Mirroring the Moon
"I was inspired by a beautiful and tranquil lake in China. The mottled colour in my work reflected my recent feelings in landscape painting. It contained abstract meaning and created a harmonious atmosphere in my work.
The pastel is perfect as a painting material for my artistic pursuits."
Jun Wang - oil on sketch paper? - Beyond the Lake
"My work often shows natural scenery and daily life. I advocate free form and the perfect combination of beautiful colour.
In this exhibition, my artworks are mainly about Australian landscapes.
I want to use my way to express the surrounding life on my canvas."
Leslie Zhang - oil on canvas - Noon
"I am very sensitive and obsessed with colours, it is the most enjoyable part in my process of painting.
I like to use a variety of colours and simple form to express my understanding of the world.
My artworks are casual, few trees and flowers, a road, a piece of water.
They are often without a main subject, the expression of my paintings are also very emotional and subjective."
Qing Zhan - oil on canvas - Girl with a choker
"My artworks are influenced by female portrait, fashion illustration and photography.
I'm always curious about the relationship between traditional portrait and modern illustration, and I want to create an aesthetic infusion in my painting."
Xia Ye - Chinese Ink painting - The Pink Spring
"Chinese Ink painting is a kind of traditional painting. Now there are more new artistic forms appearing in contemporary Chinese Ink painting.
I always pursue a creative formation to express my feelings to use the interesting material and integrate my ideas from my daily life into my paintings."
