Neon Parc is currently hosting a dual exhibition by Irene Hanenbergh and Naomi Eller.
Showcasing “Mild Fantasy” by Irene Hanenbergh and “Dead Weights” by Naomi Eller, the exhibition features new works by the two artists.
Hanenbergh’s series “Mild Fantasy” consists of new works on canvas, using the mode of ‘vignettes’ that continue her investigation into paintings’ metaphysical charge. In these works, styles of artmaking, from the abundance found in rococo, to symbolism to harsher visions in Nordic landscape painting, collapse into each other as brushstrokes meld and dissolve with fibrous forces and heady colors.
“Dead Weights” by Naomi Eller is compiled of ceramic sculptures that bear resemblance to archaeological tools and primordial objects which are displayed on a table, the floor and hanging from the walls. These works are containers of personal discourse and human disposition. They are anchored in antiquity but express a continuation of time and the weight of personal histories. They represent both ephemerality and bones and stuff of the earth, and their gritty materiality and textural finishes create a point of sensuous embodied connection.
Hanenbergh completed a Master of Fine Arts by Research degree at the Victorian College of the Arts (The University of Melbourne) in 2010. She holds as well a BFA (Honors) in Painting and Sculpture from The Academy of Fine Arts Minerva (1988, The Netherlands), a BFA (Honors) in Printmaking from The Athens School of Fine Arts (1995, Greece), followed by a two-year Postgraduate Research at the same academy. Additionally, she completed a post-graduate program at The Royal College of Art (1992, London). Hanenbergh is represented by Neon Parc, and she is also part of the collaborative artist duo Zilverster (with Sharon Goodwin) represented by Sarah Scout Presents, Melbourne.
Naomi Eller was born in Melbourne, Australia, where she currently lives and works. She has had numerous solo exhibitions, including “Imprints of Memory” at Gallery 9, Sydney 2018; and at Museo d’arte contemporanea di Lissone, December 2017; Sutton Projects, 2017; The Heide Museum of Modern Art, 2015; Tristian Koenig 2014; Chapterhouse Lane, 2014; and more venues. Her work is held in The National Gallery of Victoria, Shepparton Art Museum, James Mollison Collection AO and private collections in Australia, Italy and Japan.
The exhibition will be on view through August 25, 2018, at Neon Parc, 15 Tinning St, Brunswick, Melbourne VIC 3055, Australia.
