Wednesday 9th December to Wednesday 23rd Dec 2015
Inspired by a recent trip to the iconic coastline of the Italian Riviera, this Summer our sun-drenched gallery will reveal one of our most beautiful mixed-media concept shows of the year. Get ready to be transported to the dreamy haze of the ‘Riviera’.
Following in the footsteps of artists who have lived, loved and been inspired by the untamed beauty of this terrain, Riviera brings together the works of 13 emerging and established artists from Sydney & Melbourne. Each artist will present the symbiotic relationship between modern art and the evolution of the Mediterranean Riviera as a global tourist haven and bohemian hotspot.
Just the mention of the French Riviera conjures up a picture of beautiful beaches, opulent resorts, debonair movie stars and luxury yachts. It became the hedonistic playground and experimental studio for the great masters of 20th-century painting – Pablo Picasso one of its most famous residents.
The brilliant colours of this landscape captivated Neo-impressionist painters such as Henri Matisse and inspired him to adopt a new palette. and in doing so set modern art en route to abstraction.
This December, be the first to acquire an eclectic mix of ‘Riviera’ inspired artworks, sculptural plants and objet d’art as Christmas gifts – or for yourself.
Riviera features the works of:
Riviera is proudly supported by Cire Trudon & Le Baron des Spirits. Le Baron will be at the opening event mixing a Riviera Inspired cocktail – ’Le Riviera’ and we will be burning Cire Trudon’s divine scented ‘Positano’ candles, a fragrance created in collaboration with Italian fashion designer Giambattista Valli.
