Arthouse Gallery is delighted to present this exhibition which features a selection of new and exciting works from James Ettelson, Kate Ballis and Amelia Lynch.
Sydney based artist James Ettelson’s joyous palette, polychromatic patterns, energetic mark-making and effervescent, explosive forms visualise our collective need to selectively focus on the glistening hope that radiates from realms of darkness. Employing acrylic, spray paint, stencilling and layering, Ettelson builds each work without preconception, tapping into the intuitive channel between head and hand, imagination and realisation. His palette, however, is highly planned, creating a dialogue between raw and refined, intuitive and constructed.
Amelia Lynch is a dynamic ceramicist and recent graduate of the Master's program at the National Art School in Sydney. Her tactile exploration of form and surface responds to the natural environment, casting conceptual and visual links with geological phenomena such as rock erosion and stratification.
Kate Ballis is a Melbourne-based fine art photographer creating unique, colour-drenched images using infrared technology. Seeing the unseen through this technological lens Ballis finds a foreign otherworldly quality in familiar landscapes and scenes.
