Congratulations to Loribelle Spirovski for being awarded the 2021 Bluethumb Art Prize for the portrait of the artist’s husband, Simon Tedeschi, ‘Mirror into Mirror.’ Simon featured frequently in a number of Loribelle’s portraits. This rendition was produced during Sydney’s lockdowns, while the title of the painting was inspired by Loribelle’s observation the image of Simon became ‘a mirror of her isolation’.
Loribelle’s works will be included in our forthcoming ‘Metro Summer’ exhibition (11-29 Jan 2022). E-mail the gallery for further information about the artist’s available works.
Congratulations to Bettina Willner, whose work, ‘Tangled and Twisted’, has been selected as a finalist in the Darebin Art Prize. As the artist wrote in a statement, ‘Tangled and Twisted are from a series of works made during Lockdown. A time when we were not able to travel further than a 5 km radius. Photos that I took as part of my process helped me transport a vivid recollection of the inner peace and inspiration I experienced walking along the coast in the Wilsons Promontory region.’
The exhibition is on view at the Bundoora Homestead Arts Centre until the 12th of March 2022.
Bettina Willner’s works will be included in our forthcoming ‘Metro Summer’ exhibition (11-29 Jan 2022); the artist’s solo exhibition will presented at Metro Gallery from 1 to 26 Feb 2022. E-mail us for further information an advance access to the artist’s works.
Congratulations to Andrew Bonneau, whose painting, Self-Portrait in Armour, has been selected as a semi-finalist in the 2021 Doug Moran National Portrait Prize.
A showcase of Andrew Bonneau’s recent paintings and works on paper will be presented at Metro Gallery in 2022: E-mail us for further information and advance access to the exhibition catalogue.
