Burnie Arts & JamFactory invite you to the opening of ICON Angela Valamanesh: About being here Exhibition
JamFactory ICON Angela Valamanesh: About being here
JamFactory’s Icon series celebrates the achievements of South Australia’s most influential artists working in craft-based media. Inspired by the symbiosis between science and poetry Angela Valamanesh’s artworks elicit intrigue and a strong sense of personal investigation as she manipulates seemingly familiar anatomical, botanical and parasitic forms in beguiling and unusual ways. Primarily known for her biomorphic ceramic sculptures, this exhibition also celebrates the artist’s evocative drawings, watercolours, and mixed media works from her developing style of the late 1990s until present.
This visually stunning exhibition is coming to Burnie as part of a national tour and we will be reawakening our Regional Gallery especially for it as the only Tasmania venue presenting this iconic work.
“I believe that art like science can help teach us about who we are, what we are made of and in doing so show us the importance of recognising that we are part of a whole.” Angela Valamanesh.
