Gold Coast-based artist Victoria Reichelt has been practising art for over twenty years. Known for her stunning realist paintings, Reichelt documents endangered artefacts and transitional spaces, both technological and temporal. Featuring works spanning Reichelt’s career, Archive brings together works that explore contemporary detritus, from stacks of books and magazines and empty public libraries, to plastic cups and takeaway containers. The exhibition will also feature works from her latest series of balloon-constructed images, that Reichelt describes as ‘sarcastic landscapes’. Reichelt said, “if we’re not careful they may be the only landscapes we have.”
Victoria Reichelt studied Fine Art at the Queensland College of Art, graduating in 2005 having completed her Doctor of Visual Arts. She was awarded the Sulman Prize (Art Gallery of New South Wales) in 2013, and is a recent finalist in the Portia Geach Memorial Award 2019, the Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize 2019 and Still: National Still Life Award 2, 2019.
Victoria Reichelt is represented by Jan Murphy Gallery, Brisbane, and This Is No Fantasy, Melbourne.
A Tweed Regional Gallery initiative.
