Michelle Hanlin: The Soft Rock Scene

July 17, 2019 - August 10, 2019

Michelle Hanlin, Sculptural Propositions, 2019. Vinyl paint (flashè) on canvas, 121.5 × 91.5cm.

 

Gallery 9 presents Michelle Hanlin’s new exhibition of paintings, The Soft Rock Scene. A coy reference to the 60’s and 70’s musical genre that smoothed out hard rock’s rough edges, Hanlin’s paintings depict anthropomorphic forms stacked and slumped within the hard-edge frame of each painting. Hanlin finds creative inspiration in sculptural traditions of bas relief, molds, casts and assemblages as well as old printing processes. A single light source and the play of shadow within a restricted colour palette, gives form to these objects and they appear illuminated as if on a stage. Abstracted and simplified, the objects become emblematic. Hanlin’s visions are the embryonic seeds of ideas, realised as amorphous forms, presented starkly nonetheless.

 

The show will run in tandem with a group show by artists including Tonee Messiah, Louise Gresswell, Sarah CrowEST, Karyn Taylor and Viv Miller.

 

Exhibition Opens: 6–8pm Wednesday 17 June 2019
