Artists Paul Ryan and Lottie Consalvo join Nanda\Hobbs Contemporary

12 December 2016

It is with great pleasure that Nanda\Hobbs Contemporary announces the representation of artists Paul Ryan and Lottie Consalvo. We look forward to their solo exhibitions in 2017/18.

Paul Ryan

Paul Ryan’s powerful swaths of colour and texture coupled with compositional brilliance has seen him become one of the most sought after contemporary painters in the country. 

He has been a finalist 13 times in the coveted Archibald prize, 4 times in the Wynne and 6 times in the Sulman Prize. In recent weeks Ryan was runner up in the Paddington Art Prize.

Ryan is an artist who challenges the way we view our landscape and our history. He is willing to discuss in paint uncomfortable moments in our shared history as part of the process of developing a stronger society.  His evocative technique has influenced a generation of artists. In 2015 a multi-panelled portrait of Noah Taylor cemented his place as agent provocateur in Australian painting. View artworks

We look forward to Paul Ryan’s first solo exhibition at Nanda\Hobbs in October next year.

Lottie Consalvo

Lottie Consalvo is a Newcastle-based artist whose multidisciplinary practice spans painting, sculpture, performance, video and photography. She began her career as a painter but moved to performance art after a European residency in 2010 where her work explored psychological states and the tangle presence of memory in every life. Her public profile in performance artwas highlighted with her inclusion in the highly acclaimed Marina Abramović: In Residence presented by Kaldor Public art projects, Project #30 in 2015.

Consalvo's recent work furthers this conversation with a physical presence for imagination, memory and physchological transitions in paint. Beautiful, organic forms and colours reference spiritual places such as alters and shrines and natural phenomenas like the blurring shift in the act of falling. View artworks
