Intriguing Art From Australia's Nambucca Valley Residents Makes Borderline Exhibition
Local artists and artisans from the Nambucca Valley area of Australia have collaborated their talents to create a once in a life-time merging of ideals. Running from the 9th-30th of April 2022, a welcome relief from pandemic restrictions is surely enough to entice more than just curious art fans. Comprised of well-thought and emotionally charged pieces that speak volumes with their own subtle and extroverted qualities, the Borderline Exhibition has been arranged by Urunga Art Space curator Adrienne Hmelnitsky.
Designed to express emotional clarity and psychological conjunction from individual artists, the story-telling element of the complete exhibition has been designed to Adrienne's own professional aesthetic. She references an “industrial” (News Of The Area) sense of design in the way lines and shapes are arranged together.
The image shown, from artist Sally Hook from Newee Creek, gives us an idea of what to expect. Named Great Barrier Wreath, the vibrant and colourful coral colours have been replaced with a chalky dead cake of blandness. This tells the story of what is happening to the Great Barrier Reef which has been a beautiful attraction and an indispensable ecosystem for generations.
If an exhibition like Borderline was to be produced in your local area, what kind of responses do you think artists would represent? What are the big emotional dilemmas and social problems that seem most important to your community? How would you put this into a work of art? Comment with your ideas.
