Observation – 12 x 12 Oils on Canvas by Jennie Rosenbaum
wow what a fantastic night! thankyou to everyone who attended 🙂 as with the last exhibition I got so caught up that I forgot to take photographs and if I am the one on the other side of the camera I can guarantee I’m not in the pictures! I will track down some photographs from somewhere..
The exhibition was packed. all four floors had a massive variety of art, techniques and media. there were installations, traditional media, tiny sculptures of metal, glass and crochet, photography and every kind of artist as well! the space is so dynamic. very industrial, very cool warehouse style, gritty and real.
my location was perfect, the hanging was very nicely done (thankyou Emily!) and the buzz was electric. there was an energy to the entire opening as every artist brought all their friends, family and collectors. I loved the diversity of the work. there were some real stand out pieces.
I feel bad that I ended up being so tired and weak that I couldn’t really mingle the way that I usually do. there were some lively conversations about my work and I was so exhausted I couldn’t stand to join in! my fault for having an exhibition in my last trimester really. The emphasis of this exhibition was more about projects and methods than about sales, there were not many catalogue sheets to go around and none of the artists were working very hard on making sales. this exhibition was more about making connections and gaining exposure, exploring our new works and how we got to where we are.
the series of paintings I curated showed my ongoing fascination with light and shadow and how I have progressed from the initial works to my CG inspired works and into my new visible light series. in a way it was almost a retrospective and a great chance to show some works which have never been shown in Australia before.
Summer in the City is ongoing until the 16th of January.
