‘Vision’ brings together four emerging Sydney artists for a dynamic show that explores perception.
Chunyu Zhang’s unique interior paintings examine the traditions of her homeland of China, and how they collide with modern life in Sydney. Chunyu is passionate about using classical art techniques to convey contemporary ideas and has trained at the Julian Ashton Art School (Sydney) as well as the Grand Central Atelier (New York).
Margherita Sanguineti‘s fascination with nature has inspired a series of intricate landscape paintings that capture the expansive and wild qualities of our most essential resource – trees. Born and raised in Italy, Margherita moved to Sydney in 2009 and has pursued art various inner city institutions including the East Sydney Academy of Art, National Art School and The Julian Ashton Art School.
Michael Simms’s highly realistic portraits utilise classical techniques, as well as a thorough understanding of his subject’s psyche to depict their physical resemblance and inner humanity. After completing a psychology degree in Adelaide, Michael’s quest to understand people lead him to the Sydney art world where he won a scholarship to study Fine Art at the Julian Ashton Art School.
Haruyo Morita’s sensitive ‘Soul Portrait’ series challenges customary notions of portraiture, capturing human presence without the physical attributes we often associate with figurative art. Haruyo uses traditional materials from her native country of Japan to present her subject’s spiritual energy, and has refined her craft at various art schools in Japan, France and Australia.
Join these four artists for opening night drinks on Friday the 13th of November, between 6-8pm.
