Space 1: Saffron Newey / Marion Abraham

Saffron Newey

Saffron Newey is an artist who interrogates the Internet in a new and promiscuous way.

Through random Google image searches she sources and appropriates a broad array of artworks from unrelated histories and genres. Featured in this exhibition is a Romantic cloud painting after Hans Güde alongside a fantasy art dragon, a stock image of an ocean and a horse, painted after George Stubbs.
As a body of work a new brand of “sublime” emerges; one that considers both the original, Romantic definition and also a new, contemporary, digital sublime.

Saffron Newey lives and works in Melbourne. In 2020 she was awarded a PhD in Fine Art at RMIT.

Marion Abraham

Marion Abraham has a deep love for the sculptural capacity of paint combined with story-heavy imagery. Her practice is an extension of experience in the natural world and carries the signifiers of bygone eras and old lands.

Traditional power structures and gender roles are reimagined in Marion’s painting: she loves the humorous, the violent and the beautiful. In 2019 Marion had solo shows at Tinning Street Presents, Brunswick Street Gallery and The Motley Bauhaus and in 2020 at Counihan Gallery.
