Luscious and unashamedly joyful, the works of these four Melbourne artists invite us to share in all their bounteous femininity. Intoxicating colour and tactility becomes a visualising stimulus. A sense of freedom is palpable, as is an idealism that’s self aware and strikingly honest.
Amber Stones and Green brings together four individual artistic practices that link to women’s histories and mythologies; that embody a sense of community and hyper-connectivity.
Kate Just revives moments in feminist history in which collective action and craftwork were deployed to enact change, invoking a utopian reimagining of women’s agency within the urban environment.
Maya Chakraborty creates saturated scenes that allow for imagination, wonder and even a bit of pleasure to originate. New perspectives and new ways of seeing are celebrated.
Veronica Kent explores alternate ways of knowing, making and being together by reconstructing a mythology of human vices and virtues and examining it through her own lens of feminine desire.
Georgina Glanville’s work acts symbolically without being fully legible as symbols. They engage us in a range of sensations and emotions by providing an increased awareness of our bodies and flesh.
