JAN MURPHY GALLERY

Form & Substance, curated by Alex Seton

17 June – 12 July 2014

Form and Substance, curated by Alex Seton, presents twelve artists whose work demonstrates a strong bond between concept and execution. In Form and Substance, Seton has assembled a group of artists similarly engaged; a survey of concepts, forms, materials, gestures and processes that emerge in chorus and collusion, each inextricable from the other. Featuring work from Victoria Reichelt, Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Laura Moore, Tully Arnot, Caroline Rothwell, Tim Silver, Amy Joy Watson, Charlie Sofo, Honor Freeman, Ham Darroch, Lionel Bawden and Alex Seton himself.

These artists, although working across diverse mediums, have a finely honed attunement to their craft, and an ability and desire to allow the objects they produce to speak for themselves. The conceptual and studio practices inform and feed into each other, becoming inseparable parts of a whole. In the making of work from a particular material with its own inherent qualities, ideas are brought to life. Form and substance are symbiotic; the medium has become the message. Click here to see Form & Substance catalogue.

THE MEDIUM IS THE MESSAGE

LA TROBE UNIVERSITY ART GALLERY

30 April 2014 – 27 June 2014

CHRIS BOND | EOLO PAUL BOTTARO | JUAN FORD | SAM LEACH | AMANDA MARBURG | VICTORIA REICHELT

The death of painting has been declared – again and again – for the better part of two centuries. Photography did it. There was no longer a need to labour with pigment and brushes when a more faithful representation could be achieved with the press of a button. Of course, they were wrong. The demise of painting was a mistruth – a furphy. But as with any aspersion, spread the word often enough and the smear will leave a stain – maybe even in the minds of the most ardent of devotees.

It’s interesting that one of the prevailing and more celebrated paradigms in contemporary figurative painting is the emulation of the photograph. Fidelity to appearance has re-emerged as a favoured means of capturing a subject in much contemporary painting. But that’s not the full extent of it either. Amongst those working in this space there is a subset of artists whose subject matter is the stuff of the work itself. The object depicted is the medium.

The Medium is the Message brings together the work of six important contemporary artists who, through their individual painting practices, reflect on the state and relevance of painting today through depictions of the medium itself and other aspects of the canon. The artists represented in this exhibition include Amanda Marburg, Chris Bond, Eolo Paul Bottaro, Juan Ford, Sam Leach and Victoria Reichelt. Curated by Michael Brennan.

LOSSLESS: ALEX SETON & VICTORIA REICHELT

JAN MURPHY GALLERY 

29 OCTOBER – 16 NOVEMBER

Lossless is a data compression format without any loss of quality, often used for archiving or production purposes. The exhibition Lossless brings together two artists who make work about this idea of loss under digital advancements.

What are we losing in the conversion of the world’s information and production from analogue to digital? Digital technologies have made our lives easier and quicker with the rapid sharing and storing of information, but this exhibition explores the idea that the texture and richness of our stories and information are being lost in the telling. The digital world does not entirely account for the complexity of smells, textures and flaws that make up the character and the tangibility of our world and its stories. Both artists explore this small but important loss in their unique way in this exhibition.

19 OCTOBER 2013 – 16 FEBRUARY 2014

The prominence given to the self image in social media, on reality television and in everyday life has generated an audience primed to receive and consume personal information.

INTERVIEW – ART WORLD WOMEN

“Following on from a hugely successful show at the 2011 Korea International Art Fair, Queensland artist Victoria Reichelt has been shaping a stunning 2012 year of exhibitions. She may be affectionately known as the “book lady”, but definitely not in the musty librarian conjurings of the term. Quite the opposite.  Reichelt’s work is as sleek, stylish and intelligently constructed as the Vogue magazines in which it frequently appears. Impeccable as a pristinely tucked white linen sheet without a wrinkle in sight. Just like the person that might make such a bed, there is an observable obsession to perfection in Reichelt’s work.  In fact, there’s a lot more going on below the covers of Reichelt’s paintings, with a hint of the subversive breaking ground in her latest work. Art World Women recently had a chat with Victoria about her fascination with books and her upcoming exhibitions…” (Read here – Art World Women)

BOOKSHELF BY ALEX JOHNSON (Thames & Hudson, London)

A title that will appeal to those interested in book culture as well as furniture and interior design, Bookshelf is the first publication to take bookshelf design as its subject. From the conceptual Read-Unread Bookshelf (which weighs books read against those still to be started) to the multi-function Trick (a unit that transforms from shelf-space into a table and two chairs), Bookshelf presents over 200 inventive and experimental shelving designs in more than 400 colour illustrations that are sure to covet and inspire. Individual specification details are provided for each bookcase, including materials and documentation, and the accompanying texts by Alex Johnson, author and editor of The Blog on the Bookshelf, provide a fun and informative look at the history of the bookcase, as well as reflecting on how a new generation of designers have re-imagined a classic. One might have presumed that, with the advent of the e-book, the days of the bookshelf were numbered. In fact, readers are now taking almost as much interest in the furniture that houses their libraries as the books themselves; if the titles in your collection are a reflection of your personality, then so too is the design of your bookshelf.

BOOKWORK: MEDIUM TO OBJECT TO CONCEPT TO ART

BY GARRETT STEWART, University of Chicago Press

“There they rest, inert, impertinent, in gallery space—those book forms either imitated or mutilated, replicas of reading matter or its vestiges. Strange, after its long and robust career, for the book to take early retirement in a museum, not as rare manuscript but as functionless sculpture. Readymade or constructed, such book shapes are canceled as text when deposited as gallery objects, shut off from their normal reading when not, in some yet more drastic way, dismembered or reassembled.” So begins Bookwork, which follows our passion for books to its logical extreme in artists who employ found or simulated books as a sculptural medium. Investigating the conceptual labor behind this proliferating international art practice, Garrett Stewart looks at hundreds of book-like objects, alone or as part of gallery installations, in this original account of works that force attention upon a book’s material identity and cultural resonance.

Less an inquiry into the artist’s book than an exploration of the book form’s contemporary objecthood, Stewart’s interdisciplinary approach traces the lineage of these aggressive artifacts from the 1919 Unhappy Readymade of Marcel Duchamp down to the current crisis of paper-based media in the digital era. Bookwork surveys and illustrates a stunning variety of appropriated and fabricated books alike, ranging from hacksawed discards to the giant lead folios of Anselm Kiefer. The unreadable books Stewart engages with in this timely study are found, again and again, to generate graphic metaphors for the textual experience they preclude, becoming in this sense legible after all.

Gold Coast City Art Gallery

14 DECEMBER – 6 FEBRUARY 2011

The Stan and Maureen Duke Art Prize is an acquisitive art award and exhibition held annually at the Gold Coast City Art Gallery. This years judge was Geoffrey Cassidy, Director of Artbank, the largest buyer of Australian contemporary art in the country. Total prize and acquisitions of $30,000 were awarded on Saturday December 4th, with Victoria’s painting Last Days being acquired for the collection. Judge, Geoffrey Cassidy said of Victoria’s work, ‘Victoria Reichelt’s stacks of books are more than they seem. In precarious piles with doomsday titles, they foretell their own obsolescence. The painting delights with its technical ability while impressing with its conceptual strength and its humour’..

21 AUGUST – 18 SEPTEMBER 2010

Featuring Giles ALEXANDER, Natasha BIENIEK, Chris BOND, Marian DREW, Craig EASTON, Vincent FANTAUZZO, Louise PARAMOUR, Victoria REICHELT, Kate SHAW & Megan WALCH.

Lost in Painting is an exhibition exploring contemporary Australian painting by artists from Dianne Tanzer Gallery and Nellie Castan Gallery. Embracing painting’s possibilities, the pursuit of the artists in this exhibition is to continue the ongoing debates over the practice of painting and its location within contemporary art. The galleries are looking to celebrate the diversity of painting by showcasing a cross section of emerging to mid career contemporary painters who work in various processes and mediums, utilising different concepts and content.

Victoria’s work is featured in the article THE PAINTED BOOK by Peter Terzian for American Print magazine.

The article also features artists Richard Baker (US), Simon Morley (UK), Duncan Hannah (US), Leanne Shapton (US), Harland Miller (UK) & RoulaPartheniou (Canada).

Lately, a handful of well-read visual artists have turned to book design – specifically, the classic covers of the 20th century – as a source of raw material and inspiration..

..Melbourne artist Victoria Reichelt says that her paintings—of books in piles or on shelves, arranged neatly or in a jumble—present a paradox. “In a painting, books serve a very different purpose from their intended function. They are purely objects like any others, with histories and narratives of their own, quite separate from the text inside them.” Still, she says, the viewer is drawn into the painting through his or her affinity with titles, author’s names, and illustrations.

Reichelt’s earliest book paintings are of tattered vintage editions. Represented singly or in arrangements of four or five against pristine white backgrounds, they emphasize the books’ history and fragility. More recently, her paintings of shelves packed cheek-by-jowl with volumes pitched at precarious angles draw attention to our ambivalent relationship with the physical book. (“I listen to a lot of audiobooks,” she admits, “as I can do this while I paint.”) For her 2008 exhibition “Bibliomania,” she made oil-on-linen “portraits” of fellow Australian artists by painting their personal libraries. Each collection, she says, reveals the artist’s interests and inspirations. For her latest project, Reichelt has pushed the book toward pure abstraction. Last fall, she exhibited a series of bookcase paintings modeled on Piet Mondrian’s networks of primary color; each shelf is filled with books that share the same color spine. “The titles and what they represent are no longer the focus,” she explains; “rather, they act as structural tools in a bigger picture..”

SPECTRUM

Dianne Tanzer Gallery

21 NOVEMBER – 19 DECEMBER

Opening, Saturday NOVEMBER 21st, 3 – 5pm

The exhibition Spectrum consists of a series of bookshelf paintings that sit together in a line to form a colour spectrum installation. The shapes of the shelves are modeled on Piet Mondrian’s painting from the 1920′s/30s (a series of works comprising of black lines with occasional blocks of colour, forming simple grid shapes). The paintings have the appearance of a Minimalist installation from a distance, yet function as more literal ‘realist paintings’ when viewed close up, playing with the detailed nature of the objects as they contrast with the sparse vocabulary of Minimalism. The books are disparate groups connected only by their spine colours – using them in this way echoes Minimalist concerns of form over content, whereby the books are stripped of their literary significance and reduced simply to colours. In these works, the books highlight the repetition of geometric forms through a colour spectrum, thus the titles and what they represent are no longer the focus, rather they act as structural tools in a bigger picture.

Focus, Dianne Tanzer Gallery, Melbourne.

14 APRIL – 12 MAY 2007

For the exhibition Focus, I am making paintings of antique cameras and film equipment set against stark black and white backgrounds. I am painting cameras, which with the invention of photography were once perceived as a threat to the medium of painting. The cameras I am using however, are antiques and have themselves been made redundant, superseded by new technologies and relegated to the realm of beautiful collector’s items. In drawing painting and photography together in this way, these works set out to explore the ongoing tension between the two media and the ever-changing balance of power between the two ways of making images.
