AUSiMED PRESENTS THE SOCIAL EVENT OF THE YEAR THE SOCIAL EVENT OF THE YEAR

Camille Hannah

Leviticus List, 2012

Oil and acrylic on aluminium
240 x 240cm
$ $12,000 Gallery price

In order to allow for a broad discussion about the possibilities of painting as an active participant with its own language, as well as ideas about what constitutes a spatial experience in relation to painting, Camille Hannah's paintings explore concepts pertaining to a Baroque vision, its connection to installational forms of painting and how this relates to the notion of an 'erotics' of painting.

"Harnessing the contemporary aesthetic of mediated visuality, my paintings are contextualized by their status as a non-photographic image in a world dominated by the screen, traversing the paradox between the prohibition of touch in relation to digital technology and art – and an erotic’s of painting. From this base these works reference the history of painting and the digital as a power.

Through the use of visual strategies, large- scale format, and the reversal of the painted surface, the viewer is looking through a clear plastic ‘screen’ at the reverse of the work. These paintings aim to explore alternative models of spatio-temporal representation, creating spaces where multi-layered planes of realities force estrangement, triggering a perceptual shift in our viewing of the space/time continuum. They offer a new way to respond to what the ‘visual’ is, in a context of technical images, and by doing so, position the medium as an active participant throughout our digital future.
