Featuring work from Abdul Abdullah, India Mark, Ryan Boserio, Sally Bourke, Iain Dean, Loribelle Spirovski, Richard Healy, Neva Hosking, Kim Hyunji, Shannon Mcculloch, Nicholas Plowman, and Andy Quilty, Anon explores the different ways contemporary artists in Australia are exploring and experimenting with the portrait subject through the medium of paint.
We are asking the featured artists to consider the potential of the anonymous subject within portraiture. The idea of anonymity is left open to the artist's interpretation, this could extend to the unknown or unknowable subject; or a subject rendered in a way that makes them unrecognizable. We want to focus on the potential of portraiture as a point of reference that allows an artist to explore more complex and complicated themes than the valorization of an important social figure or personal relation, as is predominantly the criteria for portrait prizes nation wide.
One night only, Wednesday 18th April, from 6pm.
Goodspace Gallery 115 Regent st, Chippendale, Sydney, Australia
