FANTASY OF VIRTUE / ALL THINGS AND NOTHING | SOLO | STOCKROOM GALLERY | KYNETON
11 AUGUST - 2 SEPTEMBER 2018

Fantasy of virtue / All things and nothing features intricate works on paper by Victorian-based artist BECC ORSZÁG. In this ongoing body of work, ORSZÁG explores 'sehnsucht', a German noun which describes an individual’s unfulfilled longing for an idealistic, unattainable alternate experience, combined with the phenomenon of paramnesia (déjà vu); the distortion of memory in which fantasy is confused with reality. ORSZÁG examines these ideas in relation to concepts of sacred space and religious experience, questioning notions of existence, ritual, pilgrimage and idolatry.

Official Opening Saturday 11 August 4pm

MIRROR DRAWING | BECC ORSZAG + MATTHEW ALLEN | NEON HEATER GALLERY | OHIO USA
4-18 MAY 2018

Mirror Drawing brings together Melbourne based artist Becc Ország and Amsterdam based artist Matthew Allen to present a minimal and meditative installation of drawings that attempt to push the material and perceptual limits of drawing. While both making use of traditional drawing media: paper and graphite, both artists take a unique position to the concept and phenomenon of mirroring and the generation of pictorial space.

The natural world is a place of extremes – it can be a landscape of fury, of the unforgiving, of the merciless, or the untameable. Yet it is also an environment that can be harnessed - where crops are sown and gathered, where the weather can be predicted, where its mountains and oceans can be traversed. This exhibition brings together represented artists of FLG and selected guest artists who create works on paper within their practice. Whether they’re from drawing, painting or printmaking backgrounds, these artists produce incredibly beautiful and contemporary collectable artworks.
