Worldwide renowned Artists displayed in South West Sydney
The Casula Powerhouse Art Centre and the Mayor of Liverpool officially opened the Artwork exhibit of two Australian/ worldwide renowned Artists: Vivienne Binns and Hossein Valamanesh.
I had the pleasure of attending the official opening of this amazing and incredible art exhibit. Vivienne Binns and Hossein Valamanesh are two of Australia's leading visual artists, displaying a cross-cultural feast for the senses.
Some of their marvellous works have been showcased at Casula Powerhouse Art Centre. This free exhibition is not just for adults. Children are invited too, to experience art. There is a kids' corner, which has'hands on' interactive activities where children and of course children at heart are able to create their own 'masterpieces'.
There are materials such as paper, scissors and pens which can be used to create an artwork and to enjoy the fun activities. The kid's corner is located on level 1.
Vivienne Binns is an Australian Artist who was born in Wyong NSW. She has established herself as a highly respected and astute artist within the Australian artistic landscape.
She is known for making artwork using different patterns from around the home. By using these everyday materials around home in her work Binns is showing us that art is all round us, and not just part of life, art is life!
Hossein Valamanesh is an Iranian- Born Australian artist. He combines his memories and experiences of these cultures in his artwork. He uses domestic architecture and poetry inspired from these places.
Valamanesh displays objects in his artworks in a way that helps us, the audience, see ourselves in the work. Although many of his work does not show a person's body or face, we can still imagine a person being there.
He finds inspiration in everyday life, such as going for walks to collect natural materials that bring strong memories of feelings to mind to make artwork.
Together Binns and Valamanesh have become a mighty force in the Australian contemporary art landscape. Their individual practises are uncompromising and evolving as both artists continue to experience with material, form and subject.
In this rare exhibition we are given the opportunity to see such an amazing broad range of works from each artist's oeuvre.
With over seventy works on display, as well as showcasing works that have never been displayed in Sydney before, it is for sure one experience not to be missed. With such diversity of these two highly respected artists, the exhibition will keep you in admiration.
There is plenty of parking on site. It is pram/stroller and wheelchair accessible.
