19 Karen Contemporary Artspace: Mini Solo Show; Small and ephemeral
It is powerful experience when an artist exhibits a body of work for the first time to a captive audience. The undulation of story intricately woven together by each piece culminates into a personal journey that can only be forged through the enigmatic dynamic between the artist and the individual viewer. Imagine the magnitude of that experience multiplied by six. That is what 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace promises in their upcoming “Mini Solo Show” collective opening on Saturday August 21st.
Six Australian artists will contribute a small body of work, unlike a standard group showing however, the beauty in this type of exhibition lies in the diversity of the art on offer. Australian contemporaries Go Suga, Amber Kingi, Jayde Chandler, Leigh Pearson, Robyn Leoni Abbott and Todd Romanowycz will each showcase pieces that portray their artistic perspective via a theme that represents their current creative identity. This innovative format promises guests a sample of various artists and styles all in one seamless curation. From abstraction to expressionism, figurative to retro-urban, the appeal to this upcoming show is far reaching and it is sure to tantalise.
The concept was developed by gallery Director Terri Lew last year as means to continue to support local artists, as well as delight art enthusiasts, amidst the changing cultural climate. The gallery has also partnered with local brewers Young Henry’s Brewery & Distillery for the forthcoming show, who will be providing guests complimentary tastings of their popular brew. Live music will also be played by Burleigh’s James Street Preachers. For a collectors preview of the array of work on offer please click the download link below.
