Wabi - Sabi | the Beauty of Imperfection

Each year Dandenong Ranges Open Studios participating artists are asked to create a work based on a collective theme. This year’s theme is WABI-SABI, the Beauty of Imperfection, a Japanese philosophy which encourages us to focus on the blessings hiding in our daily lives and celebrate the way things are rather than how we think they should be. The group exhibition is a unique opportunity to see work from all the artists in one location and select the studios that most intrigue or inspire you to visit during the Dandenong Ranges Open Studios weekend.

The Ranges | 3 Perspectives

At one time each of the artists was a Dandenong ranges resident. The works featured draw from the surrounding landscape of the places they called home.

Mary Tonkin: Contemporary plein air landscape artist whose detailed large scale representations reflect the forest at her family’s property in Kalorama.

Fred Williams: Australia’s most iconic landscape artist redefined painting in the Australian bush during his ‘Upwey years’ from 1963-68.

Miles Evergood: An impressionist whose 1930’s Kalorama paintings are characterised by strong colours and expressive brushstrokes and use of palette knife.

Holding Pattern

 

New work, new ideas, from the new world. Responding to the idea of ‘the anthropause’ (a considerable global slowing of modern human activities, notably travel, due to COVID-19 restrictions affecting the flow of human movement globally), five contemporary artists are commissioned by Burrinja to make new digital works.

The project will be delivered to audiences via their own mobile phones, turning our hand held screens into the stages of our future.

A new work delivered to audiences each Thursday throughout April.

Artists include Gretel Taylor, Roderick Price, Julien Macandili, Rhys Kiekegaard, and Edwina Green.

"Over the past few months, many countries around the world went into lockdown to control the spread of COVID-19. Brought about by the most tragic circumstances, this period of unusually reduced human mobility — which we suggest be coined ‘anthropause’ — may provide important insights into human–wildlife interactions in the twenty-first century. Anecdotal observations indicate that many animal species are enjoying the newly afforded peace and quiet, while others, surprisingly, seem to have come under increased pressure." - www.nature.com
