After celebrating the gallery’s 10th anniversary in Brisbane on James St, TWFINEART is bringing the contemporary gallery experience to the Gold Coast this summer. Exhibiting original works and exclusive limited editions in a stellar line up in a brand-new pop up at The Oasis, Level 1 from 11th December – 1st March 2024.
December – Odessa Mahony-de Vries (from Maroochydore)
Australian artist Odessa Mahony -de Vries, is propelled by the materiality of paint and colour, channeling them into an active exploration of process. Odessa works quickly and engages in immediate responses, navigating the interplay of painterly gestures and dynamic compositions to find resolve. She creates boundaries within the canvas, but later dismantles them by extending the paint and blurring lines.
Her artworks are loud and large scale 2D paintings on canvas, luminous digital works, and ceramic sculptures. The sculptures directly derive from her paintings and showcase the malleability of the material, creating spatial dialogues within the artwork. They extend from the clay body, embodying abstraction and the negotiation between maker and material.
Odessa has a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree with a major in Painting from RMIT. Her exhibitions include “Betwixt” at Webb Gallery Queensland College of Art Brisbane in 2021, “PAINT” at Noosa Regional Gallery in 2022, and a solo exhibition titled “15 Steps above the Silver Phoenix” on the Sunshine Coast 2023.
