Join Melbourne-based artist John Young in conversation with writer Anna Johnson. Johnson will investigate Young’s most recent body of work the dynamic ‘Spectrumfigures’, also referred to as Human-Computer Friendship paintings in a deliberate play on their uneasy relationship. Anna will also discuss John’s continued investigation of Western late modernism from a transcultural viewpoint, with particular focus of the regional development of the Asia Pacific region.

SYDNEY CONTEMPORARY 2018 ‘Always on the dancefloor’ by Claudia Damichi at The Old Clare Hotel with Olsen Gallery, Sydney
‘Always on the dancefloor’ is an exciting extension of Damichi’s paintings that explore the intersection of art, architecture and design. This new installation work for the Sydney Contemporary is multi-modular in design and composed entirely in response to the site.
‘Always on the dancefloor’ carries on Damichi’s long standing interest in the abstract work of Mondrian, Delaunay, Kandinsky and the relationship between colour and music. As a disco child of the 70’s, her work pops and slides as it plays into the site, adding colour and movement, bringing a sense of the dance floor to the industrial building landscape .
Claudia Damichi will also present a new series of paintings and wall works at Olsen Gallery Annex in October.
Three of our artists have been selected as finalists in the Paddington Art Prize. We would like to congratulate Sally Anderson, Julian Meagher and Marisa Purcell on their achievement. See the works below.
‘Wapengo Lake Tideline’
“I wanted this work to chase the spontaneity and freedom of a watercolour. It was painted at a time of great change just before my son was born. A time of giving in to forces far greater than me, of tides, cycles and connection to country.” Julian Meagher .
An exhibition of Marisa’s works is currently running at Olsen Gallery until the 16th of September.
“The route of the stars in orbit has been a long fascination of mine. The landscape of the sky and the unknown reaches of a universe has compelled stories and pictures to be painted – an integral part of what it means to be human.” Marisa Purcell.
Paul Davies has been featured in the July 2018 edition of Soho House Magazine.
