LAURA JONES | DUMBO FEATHER

OLSEN gallery would like to congratulate Laura Jones. Laura Jones was recently named the feature artist for Dumbo Feather’s climate change issues, in which she speaks about her time as an artist-in-residence at the Australian Museum Lizard Island Research Station.

The article features Laura’s diary entries, where she documents her up-close experience of the Great Barrier Reef’s changing conditions. The feature also includes a podcast from their series That Time When, “where we chat with people about moments big or small that changed the course of their lives.

“Laura brings to life her experience of witnessing the Great Barrier Reef’s changing conditions, how she learnt to use her art as a form of activism and how she worked alongside science to interpret and bring attention to the problems that our planet is facing”.

Below are links to both the article and the podcast.

GEORGE BYRNE | JONES MAGAZINE

JONES Magazine recently sat down with GEORGE BYRNE  in the lead up to his upcoming exhibition ‘New Order’ opening at New York’s OLSEN GRUIN gallery on 15 September, 2017.

George’s upcoming show will feature more of his signature aesthetic, combining geometry and colour theory to evoke a sense of urban isolation. He cites artists including Jeffrey Smart, Richard Diebenkorn and Stephen Shore, a member of the New Topographic movement of American landscape photographers, as among his influences when it comes to capturing unexpected California moments.

“I’m pushing the medium away from straight documentary or portrait because I’m more interested in creating a feeling than telling a story.”

“I love the idea of accidental beauty, and I’m most satisfied when I can make a good image out of the most unlikely scenery or surfaces,” he says.

SYDNEY Contemporary | Robert Klippel

OLSEN gallery is pleased to present Colour and Form:Works from the Estate of Robert Klippel at Sydney Contemporary 7 – 10 September 2017.

Andrew Klippel (son of Robert) and Tim Olsen speak of the upcoming show in the recently published article,  The artistic impulse of one of Australia’s greatest artists, by Linda Morris, in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Like the sons of many artists, Andrew Klippel grew up knowing he was second in his father’s affections to the creative impulse.

Robert is regarded as Australia’s pre-eminent sculptor of the 20th century, having exhibited with the likes of Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Fernand Leger, Rene Magritte and Lucian Freud. In New York he walked among the giants of the contemporary art scene as a member of the 10th Avenue Club, an artist group founded by Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock.

Artist Robert Klippel never stopped toiling in service of his aesthetic convictions.

“Metal and junk, that’s what the house smelled of,” Klippel recalls. “It hadn’t been cleaned in 40 years, he wouldn’t allow anyone to clean it; there was a guy who would come in to mop the floor once every six months.

“The house had 25 rooms, each one of those dedicated to something. You had your plastic room, the plaster room, the metal rooms – plural, paper rooms, cardboard rooms, wax rooms.”
