ARTIST IN GALLERY PRIZE
Artist: Camille Hannah
Location: Galerie Isabelle Lesmeister, Regensburg - Germany
Opening: 18th April 2018, 7 p.m.
Exhibition: 19th April - 16th June 2018
The solo exhibition of Camille Hannah (Melbourne, Australia) at Galerie Isabelle Lesmeister (Regensburg, Germany ) is opening on April 18th.
The Australian artist, winner of the Special Prize "Artist in Gallery" for the 11th edition of Arte Laguna Prize, presents "LUSTRIS", her first solo exhibition in Germany, where she shows a series of works created specifically for this exhibition.
Camille paints with oil on the back of plexiglass plates. The observer sees the back of the painting through the clear, smooth and even surface of the plexi-glass.
With her painting, she is able to achieve an immense luminosity of colors, comparable to the color brilliance of digital screens, and at the same time she preserves the relationship to an art-historical form of painting. Hannah mixes in her works the contemporary aesthetics of a digital visuality and the art-historical tradition of painting.
The central aspects of LUSTRIS are sensuality and perceptibility, rooted in a paradoxical relationship between the seduction of touch and its impossibility. This leads to a paradox between the impossibility of touch and the natural "eroticism" of paintings.
LUSTRIS from 19.04 to 16.06 2018 at Galerie Isabelle Lesmeister - opening 18.04.2018 from 7 to 9pm .
