Olympia Antoniadis






Voyeuristic and playful, VCA graduate Artist Olympia Antoniadis allures the viewer into quiet spaces exploring the domestic territories of others. In this series the room acts as a familiar space, intimate and calm expressing the most benign potential of human life. The walls of these interior spaces construct boundaries around the figures, inspiring new narratives and relations. Whilst dividing them from the outside world Antoniadis' simultaneously constructs an internal world of her own. Antoniadis' fixation with fabric lends itself to the moulding and flesh like nature that envelops the human figure, softly moulding forms and provoking a playground of possibilities. Her paintings are often focused on the mundane where common occurrences are shifted and provoked by the figures that emerge

Opening: 23 February 6 - 8pm


View: 24 + 25 February 12 noon - 4pm

This is an exhibition of paintings and print works  by 8 artists, who have in common the making of works inspired by the land, or the enjoyment and awareness of place or a state of being.

Scapes, anticipates the representation of the physical and metaphysical- in representation or abstraction.

Traditionally, women have not enjoyed equality in exposure in prizes that celebrate landscape. Over its history, only a small number of women have been annointed as winner of art prizes focusing on landscape. For example, the Wynne prize.

Many of the works to displayed are abstractions, or interpretations of place. They are distillations of the essence of the place, or an interpretation of observed elements."

The Ruddy Turnstones continue on their journey of printmaking investigation and response to South Australian country and coast. Seminal to the group’s formation was a desire to collectively immerse themselves in landscape and draw inspiration from the experience. ‘Immersion KI’ in 2014 was their kick-off point. Now presented is ‘Immersion: Fleurieu Peninsula’.
