Nicole Moorhouse - Expectations

Nicole Moorhouse - Expectations

from July 27, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until September 18, 2017 @ 5:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Maffra

Moorhouse is a contemporary painter who expresses her fascination with the ‘found object’ through her love of painting. These collected and documented objects have been discarded and exposed to the elements and no longer function as intended. Moorhouse says,

“The patina of the reclamation process of nature leaves intricate and unique markings upon a variety of surfaces and materials to create an aesthetic value that draws me to these objects and ultimately the process of art making.”

Expectations is an exhibition that combines some of Moorhouse’s earlier work with new pieces that have been completed since graduating from studies. Moorhouse says,

“The title refers to the many expectations that we all face as we strive to achieve our individual goals, but it also refers to the expectations we as an audience have of an artwork and the way it functions.”

John Abery: Do you Remember? An exhibition of childhood memory

John Abery: Do you Remember? An exhibition of childhood memory

from August 04, 2017 @ 11:00 AM until September 25, 2017 @ 5:00 PM
Cowwarr Art Space

In this sculpture exhibition, John explores the nostalgia of childhood memories.  He deliberately created the works to be oversized, creating a feeling of wonder and excitement recreating the emotion a child would feel in the presence of a new toy.  He hopes these works will evoke a playful memory for everyone who sees them.

John Abery, the sculptor, is exploring and effectively recreating a childhood memory in his adult years.  He has deliberately created the sculptures to be large and oversized to emulate the excitement and overwhelming sensation that a child would feel in the presence of a new exciting object.

This collection of sculptures is designed to slow down the viewer, to look at things that we may take for granted but that a child would simply be in awe of.  This is emphasized by the sculpture called The Trinket Box.

“I have deliberately filled it with trinkets that may seem monotonous or subjectively boring.  However these objects are approached through the eyes of a child, my inner child and may also relate to the viewer’s inner child as well.” said the sculptor John
Abery.

“Even the nostalgia of the bowl of marbles that would sit on Grandma’s coffee table and the excitement that would bring to a child” said John Abery.

The sculptor has constructed these objects out of wood, for obvious links to the past of handmade wooden toys that people will remember from days gone by but also because it is a medium that the artist loves to work with and has great respect for.
