LESLIE RICE

CAROLINE ZILINSKY

Nanda\Hobbs’ exhibit the 6th Edition of the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair brings four leading contemporary artists together in a powerful investigation of mythology, landscape and portraiture.  There is an exquisite gothic vitality that pervades the work of Nicholas Blowers, David Fairbairn, Leslie Rice, and Caroline Zilinsky - disparate in subject matter yet linked in a practice centred on visual intensity.

The works exhibited move from the monumental to moments of precise detail that push at the heart of what it is to be human in a world that is constantly challenging our belief systems. The inherent beauty and intensity of the artist’s practice and vision draw us into deeper investigation and introspection.
