"Mechanics of Space"
plus 'I Stand With .....'
Sophie Amelia in the Solo Space
Fri 5th October - Sun 18th November
The ‘Mechanics of Art‘ theme arose from a discussion about art, what is art? If a person takes something like a carburetor and builds a whole motorbike around it, we could say it’s a ‘work of art’. The construction of any artwork could be called the ‘mechanics’ of it, but it can also be an abstract idea. We make a painting or sculpture, by putting something together, creating piece by piece, colour by colour, line by line a piece of artwork. This theme has inspired the work in this exhibition and some surprising pieces will be on show.
“I Stand With..... “
in The Solo Space is Sophie Amelia’s second solo exhibition and is a mixture of contemporary drawings, inspired by our local culture of eco activism, and her love of herbs and plants. Her new works, branch across into oil paintings and a couple of confronting steam-punk sculptures. The originality of the works and how they are displayed swerves away from the standard of neat framed pictures on white walls as she endeavours to escape the conformity and sameness of art and presentation. Be ready for something new from this homegrown artist who has been drawing on her experiences to bring us another stunning show.
The Opening Night will be on Friday 5th October at 6:30pm with a meal on the night for $20 per person incl mains and dessert. If you would like to come along please book with the Gallery on 66897449 or email: email@example.com
The exhibition runs until Sun 18th November.
