New Artists Join Nanda\Hobbs

20 September 2018

We are thrilled to announce two outstanding contemporary artists, Martine Emdur and Kathryn Ryan have joined the gallery.

Martine Emdur is one of Australia's most loved contemporary painters. For the past twenty years, she has led collectors to an ethereal world of water, light and the human form.  Sensual, beautiful, and deliciously evocative—her work is the perfect foil from the modern world. Her connection and representation to the natural world in her expansive canvases has gained her worldwide recognition.

Martine joins Nanda\Hobbs with an exciting exhibition of new works in April 2019. With some new directions in the studio, it is set to be a landmark show for the artist.

Kathryn Ryan's paintings are delicate and mysterious visions of the landscape of south-west Victoria. Ryan invites the audience to walk with her, to feel the stillness and the solitude one gains from being immersed in the farmlands. As the mist rolls over the hills, the shadows lengthen her subtle atmospheric paintings. For Ryan, her sense of place is strong and inspired from her lifelong association with the country that meets the great Southern Ocean.  Simply, the works have a profoundly settling effect on the soul. There is, however, a sense of grandeur in her imagery, drawn from the tonal strength of her compositions.

Kathryn has been shortlisted for the John Leslie Art Prize at Gippsland ArtGallery, on show from 22 September  25 November, 2018.
