Modern Ancient land by Otomys

  • OTOMYS 569 Victoria Street Abbotsford, VIC, 3067 Australia (map)

At the onset of Spring, the flush new green growth, full flowing rivers
and mystical dreamscapes are explored by four Otomys artists at the
upcoming art exhibition ‘modern ancient land’.
The visual language in each work focuses on the artists’ connection
with the land – in this instance ‘ land’ refers to no particular country but
rather to a more unifying shared space.
It makes sense then that the artists and their inspirations originate from
across the globe. Bonnie Levinthal from Philadelphia, Sophia Szilagyi
from Melbourne, Zuza Mengham from London and Brazilian born
Australian Eduardo Santos, explore the boundaries of their mediums
and without anecdote each work relates to the intimacy and value of
our shared ‘modern ancient land’.
While their art may be inspired by places they’ve seen, each work is an
abstraction of this – it is about the artist’s relationship with the land
whether literal or metaphorical.
This exhibition opening will be an an opportunity to meet the two
Australian artists Sophia Szilagyi and Eduardo Santos.
