Visit Nanda\Hobbs at Sydney Contemporary Stand D05

30 August 2018

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. 

Sydney based artists Giles Alexander, Jonathan DaltonStuart McLachlan and Adelaide based Dianne Gall all explore their personal narrative within the context of these universal ideas.

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 stonereflecting the weight we bearthese 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.  

Visit us at Stand D05.

Coinciding with Sydney Contemporary, Nanda\Hobbs will be holding an exhibition of new paintings by Jim Thalassoudis in our Chippendale gallery.
