Nanda\Hobbs is thrilled to welcome artist, Loribelle Spirovski as a represented artist with the gallery. Join us this Thursday evening for the opening of a small exhibition of her recent works—on show in our Project Space.
The work, predominately produced during the COVID19 pandemic, marks a particularly fruitful period in her output, building on her previous work by juxtaposing collage and computer-generated images with traditional painting techniques. In her latest surreal works that occupy the liminality of spaces neither inside nor outside, her work embodies the isolation and tension experienced in her world.
Born to a Filipino mother and Yugoslav father, the Sydney-based artist's cultural diversity is reflected in her paintings which range from dreamlike interiors, to minimalist figurations and highly rendered portraits.
Inspired by Francis Bacon’s claustrophobic pictorial scenes and obscure narratives, Spirovski’s works capture the spatial relationships between her subjects and their environments. Anchored in her surrealist interiors are figures—each confident and dynamic stroke forming highly rendered portraiture.
