MARNA HATTING OPENS AT .M CONTEMPORARY

The exhibition travels between a hybrid of fine art, literature and the complexities of contemporary life. Hattingh’s distinctive style is deeply layered and functions as a hyper textual, image ridden network of traces and meanings.

We anticipate great things from this new artist, her debut solo show in Australia, Each Their Own Wilderness is a truly incredible body of work and almost sold out at the opening.

Marna’s wide appeal sees her work being sort internationally with a solo show at the Cat Street Gallery in Hong Kong in 2014 followed by another solo show in South Africa in 2015.

Her exhibition at .M Contemporary runs until 6 October 2013

NEW IN THE STOCK ROOM  – ANNIE AITKEN 

Kaleidoscope

Image Annie Aikten
Title: Kaleidoscope 9

Annie Aitken has the alchemist’s touch; her work transforms discarded materials into soft sculptures that appear to erupt with colour out from the wall.

The beautifully crafted sculptures assume the form of fragile containers, transforming materials of the everyday into artworks that speak directly to our senses, expressing the beauty of nature. The delicate constructions are seen as “three dimensional drawings” by the artist, as they hover between both two and three dimensional.
