Introducing 424 Malvern Road, Prahran!

We are most excited to announce the Otomys has found a superb new art gallery location at 424 Malvern Road, Prahran VIC 3181
On the corner intersection of Malvern Road and Francis Street, the building designed by John Wardle Architects in 2018 with nods to the automotive history of the site. The materials and architectural elements are as dynamic as one would anticipate from a John Wardle building; the double height void on the corner window acts as a tall striking lantern of light, which we have taken to be a good omen!
Located between Chapel Street, Prahran and the bustling Hawksburn Village in South Yarra this new location is perfect and nearby many of our favourites. We are next door to Hobba, a go-to Melbourne brunch spot with its wonderful seasonal menus. We imagine that it will be a favourite for Otomys visitors, along with the delicious offerings at Bistro ThierryBaker Bleu, and Fratellino
Also nearby are a variety of wonderful boutiques and speciality stores, including GraceManon BisCollective and the amazing team at Brownlow Interior Design.
The contemporary Otomys art gallery in Melbourne gives art collectors the opportunity to view art by International and Australian artists. 
Otomys extends it’s services beyond the tradition of an art gallery by including a complimentary art consulting service in-person in the gallery. 
Visiting Otomys art gallery is an easy tram ride from the city - Stop 33 on the 72 tram line, and a 6-minute walk from Hawksburn Station.
We are pleased to announce that the launch of this new space will coincide with the opening of The Solidity of Fragile Things by Helen Redmond.
Please save the date: Thursday 16th May (6pm - 8pm) to celebrate the launch of Otomys in Prahran and the opening of The Solidity of Fragile Things by Helen Redmond. John Wardle will be opening the exhibition at 6:30pm sharp! 
In this new show, Helen Redmond looks at structures and interiors as both physically concrete and delicately metaphysical. 
“The suggestion of limitless space and the intimacy of enclosed chambers generates a tension in the paintings,” says Redmond. “They are portals into memory and light.” 
The exhibition is a celebration of Redmond’s pain-staking and detailed studio process, in which she layers sheer veils of colour and subtle details of texture over time. Creating depth, texture, and form on canvas, she creates a room beyond a room that invites a meditation upon the nuances of “empty space”. 
Redmond’s studio practice builds upon her background in interior design, further deepening her relationship with architectural spaces. There is no better way to experience such a relationship to space than through encountering her works in person.
