Leading contemporary Australian artist, Raquel Ormella is bringing her current exhibition I hope you get this to the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery this month.
Reflecting on the intersection of art and activism, Ormella's work utilises a wide selection of media; from painting to textiles, drawing, installations and video artworks.
Ormella’s art is noted for the playful use of signs, symbols and text which engage the viewer and allow the artist to converse with her audiences.
Designed as a touring show, this is the third stop for the collection after debuting at the Shepparton Art Museum in May 2018.
This collection has been curated by Shepparton Art Museum director Dr Rebecca Coates with senior curator Anna Briers, and was constructed to showcase four distinct bodies of work from the artists oeuvre.
The exhibition features work from across the last twenty years of Ormella's practice.
Included in the show are two brand new pieces, City Without Crows, which combines video and drawing in a new installation, while, All these small intensities, is a series of small embroideries.
Of interest to local viewers will be Ormella’s 2009 installation Walking Through Clear-fells which looks at the tension between forestry and the picturesque scenery of Tasmania
I Hope you get this is on show at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery from January 19 to March 31, 2019.
