This week we visit Sydney’s Galerie pompom, with Gallery Manager Michelle Chanique.
Adam Norton, WIN, 2020. Synthetic polymer on aluminium, diameter 110 cm, depth 10cm.
“I love Adam Norton’s lens of the world, he takes something so small, yet significant and supersizes it,” says Chanique. “He is like the Willie Wonka of the art world. I could so live with this giant badge, it would inspire me every day!”
Elvis Richardson, Settlement, 2018. Wrought iron gate, 180 x 93cm.
“A wrought iron gate that physically embodies borders; providing security to someone, whilst excluding someone else. This artwork is versatile and functional. I would either have this gate sitting against a wall or I could actually use this piece as a gate. I am always excited to see what Elvis will do next, she is one to watch out for.”
Chris Dolman, Along came a stranger, 2019. Oil and pencil on cotton canvas, enamel on air dried clay, 183 x 137cm.
“A sausage in underpants, looking out the window, what’s not to love about this work. Let’s not be too serious all the time. I love Chris’s sensibility and his absurd psychological narratives.
There have been studies that show that looking at art releases the feel-good hormones – when I see Chris’s work, I smile.”
Genevieve Felix Reynolds, Health, 2019. Acrylic and flashe on canvas, framed 175 x 125cm.
“I love how Genevieve explores the physical, the abstract and the architectural. She navigates through these spaces in a seamless fashion. Her use of geometric shapes and her contemporary take on the classical is brilliant. Genevieve’s work resonates with my love for architecture.”
