THE VOID EMBRACE


The Void Embrace is the latest┬ásolo exhibition by Canberra-based artist Shellaine Godbold. Her works are a record of her experiences in unfamiliar emotional geographies and a devotion to the act of drawing. The drawings and sculptures in The Void Embrace are a response to her residencies and travel in Japan and Taiwan. Moving back and forth between transparency and opacity these pieces slowly reveal their secrets to viewers. Painstakingly drawing shimmering crystal mountains and figures tangled up in clouds, Shellaine’s work deals with the sublime nature of landscape and the body’s insignificance within it. By using her own connection with the Australian landscape, she investigates foreign territories, love, loss, and all that falls between.

 

Opening event from 6pm Wednesday 8 June 2016.

This exhibition is kindly supported by Barrio Collective Coffee and Mallaluka Wines.
