Nanda\Hobbs is thrilled to be showing works by Giles Alexander, Jonathan Dalton, Dianne Gall and Stuart McLachlan at Sydney Contemporary this year.
Nanda\Hobbs’ exhibition at the 2018 Sydney Contemporary Art Fair brings together four artists that whilst working in differing visual languages, all draw upon similar themes of time and place, history and the sense of belonging that the human condition requires.
Dianne Gall’s intricately rendered Hoppersque works hint at personal isolation. Constructed in an “other-time” aesthetic sensibility, they maintain a contemporary relevance. Her paintings have much in common with Dalton’s carefully curated still-life/portraiture that draw on his deep understanding of art in the context of history. Dalton recontextualises many genre\ideas that have been played with for centuries by artists before him.
Stuart McLachlan's figures and architectural structures are meticulously hand cut from paper mirroring the fragility of our desires and choices. Anchored atop heavy stone—reflecting the weight we bear—these pieces tell the stories of who we are and the foibles of being human.
Giles Alexander explores other worldliness — taking a broad view of humanity on an existential level. His abstractions interplay with a realist narrative exploring the heavens on a rational yet highly evocative level.
