Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is presenting “The Like Button” through January 19, 2019.
The group show features a collection of works by various artists including: Jacqueline Fraser, Imants Tillers, Newell Harry, Dale Frank, Hany Armanious, and Renee So.
Jacqueline Fraser was born in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1956, and has exhibited widely on an international scale in a career that spans more than three decades. She studied at the Elam School of Fine Arts in Auckland from 1974 to 1977. In 2004, she was shortlisted for two major art prizes, Artes Mundi in the United Kingdom (one of 10 international artists) and the Walter’s Prize in Auckland (one of 4 New Zealand artists). Fraser’s early work involved installations inside gallery spaces and in outdoor environments, where she used natural and artificial materials which were woven, plaited, stretched, and tied into delicate constructions.
Born in Sydney in 1950, Imants Tillers currently lives and works in Cooma, New South Wales. In 1973, Tillers graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture (Hons), and the University Medal. Tillers has exhibited widely since the late 1960s, and has represented Australia at important international exhibitions, such as the Sao Paulo Bienal in 1975, Documenta 7 in 1982, and the 42nd Venice Biennale in 1986.
Newell Harry’s work is held by Newcastle Region Art Gallery, Queensland Art Gallery, Wollongong University, Artbank and the Ergas Collection as well as a number of private collections in Australia.
Dale Frank has been exhibiting nationally and internationally for over three decades. Frank’s work has been included in major exhibitions across the world. A major solo retrospective of his work was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney in 2000.
Hany Armanious is a sculptor whose work is predominantly concerned with the magical properties of the casting process.
Renee So works with ceramic and wool to create sculptures and knitted portraits, respectively. Born in Hong Kong and raised in Australia, this duality of heritage was addressed in So’s early work, beginning with knitted references to tourist Chinoiserie exports.
Established in Sydney in 1982, Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery has a rich history of supporting contemporary art, having fostered the careers of some of the most influential Australian artists working today, including Tracey Moffatt, David Noonan, Fiona Hall, Patricia Piccinini, Bill Henson, and Dale Frank.
The exhibition will be on view through January 19, 2019 at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, 8 Soudan Ln, Paddington NSW 2021, Sydney, Australia.
