Otomys Contemporary announces Solo Exhibition by Australian artist Sophia Szilagyi. Undercurrents by Sophia Szilagyi is an exhibition based on the idea of looking back on the old and reinterpreting the new. Szilagyi is a contemporary artist combining printmaking with a digital medium and this exhibition will show new works with a selection of images curated from a 15 year period of the artist’s career.
The themes and undercurrents threading through Szilagyi’s extensive body of work present a vibrant and ethereal reading of nature. Crashing waves and building skies are infused with depth and mystery through Szilagyi’s willingness to depart from the literal, and venture into deeper senses of memory and the primal emotional undercurrents conjured by the forces of nature. The sheer beauty and spaciousness of the landscape, and the wild mysteries of the human condition are layered within these spectacularly beautiful and dream-like images.
This retrospective collection presents a rare opportunity to view an extensive body of work not exhibited for some time. Presented alongside major new works in Szilagyi’s signature style of evocative and painterly archival pigment prints, this is a show not to be missed.
Opening Thursday 2nd May 2019, 6 – 8pm to Wednesday 22nd May 2019
567 – 569 Victoria Street, Abbotsford VIC 3067
