Vermilion Art: Under the Same Moon

At the salon reading, mixed media on canvas by Yunn Ru

UNDER THE SAME MOON is a group exhibition from Yunn Ru, Ava Wang, Charlotte Lin, Chu Fan, Lin Ling, Man Chien

It is an exhibition of selected art works that highlight six international contemporary artists from different creative backgrounds. It  showcases lively and experimental works ranging from couture garment to artisan paper. It is a celebration of the rich diversity and authenticity of works across different media, all created under the same moon.

Curated by established fashion model and self-taught artist Yunn Ru Soo, UNDER THE SAME MOON features eclectic pieces drawn from the diverse and complementary fields of fashion and design. “Assembling a collection of works from people who don’t consider fine art to be their primary occupation will definitely throw a big question out there. We want this exhibition to provoke our viewers by challenging our thoughts on how society perceives the identity of an artist.”

The exhibition covers six emerging artists who are established in their existing careers. Ava Wang, a brand manager from Taiwan, showcases inspiring calligraphy touched by the evolution of time and its influence on the style of Chinese words. Lin Ling, a Hong Kong graphic designer shares her redemption of individuality through the art of jewelry-making. Whilst Charlotte Lin, a final year fine art student from UNSW reveals her surroundings through her own personal observations on one another.

Chu Fan, Man Chien, and Yunn Ru are connected by a shared interest in fashion and the visual fusion of creativity and reality. Coming from the same country, they prove that their artistic practice is not a fad, but the pursuit of personal redemption.
Chu Fan’s fascination with the idea of seeing the world in a grain of sand reflects his view on how the beauty of nature and the universe is often found in small details, much like his profession as a make-up artist.

Yunn Ru began painting as a way of dealing with loneliness and self-exploration during her nomadic period as an international fashion/commercial model. Her works shows a wildly imaginative range in storytelling through colors. Man Chien, from an industrial design background, brings art to life by enlivening garments to combine romantic sentiments with chic design.

This exhibition will include new acrylic series by both Chu Fan and Charlotte Lin; calligraphy and ink works by Ava Wang; a vibrant series of abstract paintings by Yunn Ru Soo; jewelry works by Lin Ling and haute couture art by Man Chien.

The show will be on view from Thursday 23 Nov until Saturday 23 Dec at Vermilion Art 5/16 Hickson Rd, Walsh Bay, 2205, NSW

Opening hours: 11am – 7pm  Wednesday to Saturday.

DATES
23 Nov / 6.30pm

MINING PYRITE – FREE ART EXHIBITION @ SYDNEY OLYMPIC PARK

MINING PYRITE is a NEW exhibition to be displayed for FREE at Newington Armory Gallery at Sydney Olympic Park, from 10 am-4 pm every weekend from Saturday 17 June – Sunday 20 August 2017 (inclusive).

Curated by Cassandra Hard-Lawrie and Nick Vickers, MINING PYRITE will feature the works of 20 international and local contemporary artists, each of whom have drawn inspiration from Sydney Olympic Park and used its facilities to create their artworks. The diverse exhibition spans a broad range of expressive media forms including installation, sculpture, photography, multimedia, video, painting and more.

Gaining its title from the mineral ‘pyrite’, or ‘Fools Gold’, this exhibition explores the parallel narrative of failure and success that can be drawn from any ‘artist’s’ story.

Curator Nick Vickers draws comparison between the development of Sydney Olympic Park and that of the artist’s journey-“The constant testing and exploration of the boundaries of what does and doesn’t work is the stock and trade of creativity,” explained Vickers.

During the past 12 years, Sydney Olympic Park Authority has supported more than 170 artists’ journeys of exploration by providing its artists-in-residence program. The program allows artists to take inspiration on-site of the historic, heritage-listed Newington Armory precinct, via its unique studio spaces available for rent to artists.

Paul Kirk Solo Show SIRENS

Artist Paul Kirk is inviting readers to the opening of his solo exhibition SIRENS which takes place on September 15 between 6 and 8 pm.

Sirens is an Exhibition based upon the watery theme of the ‘Sirens’ of mythology by Sydney based artist Paul Kirk. The Sirens in Greek mythology were beautiful creatures who were also quite dangerous. They would foreshadow death luring sailors towards them with their sweet songs across the ocean breeze only to become shipwrecked.

The artworks are conceptual portraits of female artists by Sydney-based emerging artist, Paul Kirk. These unique portraits are oil paintings transformed into three-dimensional objects. They infuse sculptural elements to create a conceptual portrait of the sitter becoming a of the subject.

As Paul states “my portrait ‘Subjects’ are current Australian Female Artists that I perceive as having an ‘Edge’ in their art practice and in their personality. This edginess I find fascinating, intriguing and uncanny in the ‘Sublime’ sense. Their innate wildness that could potentially lead to connection to ‘Sirens’ of mythology.

“Aesthetically, my paintings look at how lighting phenomena can alter our perceptions of two-dimensional and three-dimensional representation.”

For all enquiries please contact central@platform72.com.au or call 02 8003 7247.

DATES
September 15, 6:00pm-8:00pm
