1950's Australia - The days when Sunday mornings meant Dad was washing the Holden, the kids were playing in the backyard under the Hills Hoist and Mum was effortlessly preparing a roast lunch in her modestly appointed kitchen. It was a time of stability and innocence. The standard of living was high, unemployment low and cultural awareness absent. Those who did not fit this increasingly standardised pattern found their minority status more pronounced. By 1956, 1.5 million immigrants had arrived, all within the confines of the White Australia policy. Books such as 'They’re A Weird Mob’ by John O’Grady published in 1957, tell us of the trials these migrants went through in order to assimilate into a foreign country.

On the surface, this exhibition Distance from Here depicts with uncritical nostalgia, the 1950's Great Australian Dream – a suburban house on a quarter acre block, owned by a traditional nuclear family. However, these beautifully built mid-century modern homes were all designed by post-war European migrants. The first being Hillman House which was built by Russian-born, Viennese-trained émigré architect Dr Henry Epstein in 1948 for the Hillman family in Roseville, Sydney. Many Europeans like Epstein who emigrated to Australia had a significant impact across architecture, interior and furniture design. This series of works speaks of the stories of migrants alike and the enormous contribution they made to Australia.

Following this, The Dogs That I Have Known series features chairs designed by George Korody, an architect and furniture designer who relocated to Sydney from Hungary in 1939.

Eliza Gosse 'Distance From Here'

Eliza Gosse explores life through the lens of architecture – specifically the clean, simple lines of post-war and mid-century design. Drawn to forms produced decades before she herself was born, Gosse creates paired back images that are not so much a depiction as an evocation of an era or place, or the people who may once have lived there. Sleek, stylised, and given quirky titles snatched from pop culture, her work is enhanced by a muted colour palette that bathes each scene in nostalgia and encourages viewers to imagine what memories might be held within the walls.

Most recently, Gosse has been compelled to paint outdoor spaces and clear pools of water, a response to being cooped up during the pandemic fog of the last year. Lighter and airier, they forgo the air of mystery for a refreshing sense of freedom, rejuvenation and welcome; a glimpse of a perfect day not too far away.

Eliza Gosse is an alumna of the National Art School, Sydney, graduating a Master of Fine Art in 2019. A multiple award recipient, she has won the Mosman Alan Gamble Award (2022); the National Art School and Parkers Sydney Fine Art Award (2019); the William Fletcher Grant for Emerging Artists (2018); the John Olsen Drawing Prize, National Art School (2017); the People’s Choice Award, Waverley Art Prize (2017); and the People’s Choice Award, Chippendale World Art Residency (2017). Gosse has also been a Finalist in the Archibald Prize (2022); Wynne Prize (2020); Salon des Refusés at S.H Ervin (2022); Mosman Art Prize (2022, 2020, 2017); Paddington Art Prize (2021); Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize (2020, 2019, 2018); Waverley Woollahra Art Prize (2019, 2018); Little Things Art Prize (2018, 2017); and the Lloyd Rees Memorial Art Award (2017). Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout Australia, and is held in public art collections such as the National Art School (NAS) Sydney, and the Sydney Children’s Hospital.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ELIZA GOSSE WHO IS A FINALIST IN THE 2024 SALON DES REFUSÉS

Congratulations Eliza Gosse whose portrait of Australian designer Emma Mulholland is a finalist in this year's Salon des Refusés. 'Emma and Norby on holiday' is now hanging at S.H. Ervin Gallery until 25 August, 2024.

The Salon des Refusés was initiated by the S.H. Ervin Gallery in 1992 in response to the large number of works entered into the Archibald Prize which were not selected for display in the official exhibition.

Each year the Salon des Refusés panel is invited to go behind the scenes of the judging process for the annual Archibald Prize for portraiture and Wynne Prize for landscape painting and figure sculpture at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, to select an exhibition from the many hundreds of works entered in both prizes but not chosen for the official award exhibition. The Salon des Refusés exhibition has established an excellent reputation that rivals the selections in the ‘official’ exhibition, with works selected for quality, diversity, humour and experimentation, and which examine contemporary art practices, different approaches to portraiture and responses to the landscape.

ELIZA GOSSE FINALIST IN THE ARCHIBALD PRIZE

Eliza Gosse is a finalist in the 2023 Archibald Prize.

This dual portrait features Eliza Gosse and her husband, architect and designer Benjamin Jay Shand, who was the subject of her portrait somewhere near home in the Archibald Prize 2022.

Gosse describes this 2023 work – one of several recent portraits, all painted on board – as ‘a cut-out of our weekend at sunrise – just us and our fluffy robes’.

‘Robes are mandatory if you come to breakfast at ours. The coffee percolates as the muesli is garnished and the CD is chosen,’ she says. ‘Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every morning could be spent lazing over several cups of coffee with a dash of honey and a side of strawberries?

‘While painting these portraits in my studio, I indulged in a few afternoons on the floor – tea and biscuits included – with the works propped up against the wall, as a sort of tea party with my wooden friends.

‘My studio mates will be glad to see these cut-outs gone; they say they came to life at night.’

ELIZA GOSSE FEATURED IN THE DESIGN FILES

Eliza Gosse was featured in The Design Files article 'Eliza Gosse's Paintings Capture the Nostalgia of Retro Architecture' by Christina Karras.

"There’s a magical attention to detail within Eliza Gosse's architectural paintings.

She expertly captures the light-filled interiors and magical Modernist facades of homes inspired by designs of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s with a dreamy pastel palette that makes you want to leap right into them. All the while maintaining a beautiful ‘flatness’ about her work."

ELIZA GOSSE - ARCHIBALD FINALIST

The Archibald Prize is a prestigious Australian portraiture art prize that has been running since 1921. The national portrait prize is entering a new century with 816 submissions entered this year, of which 52 finalists were announced on Thursday 5th of May. It is with great pleasure to congratulate Eliza Gosse who was selected as a finalist in the 2022 Archibald Art Prize.

Gosse depicts in her painting an architect and designer Benjamin Jay Shand. She states,

"He sees beauty in the most peculiar places, has great hair and likes to wear sunglasses more than is usual. I can say that because he is my husband. I don’t often paint people; however, Benj finds himself the constant muse for my sketchbook scribbles. And as this is my first large-scale portrait, it felt natural for him to be the subject..."

ELIZA GOSSE FEATURED IN PLAIN MAGAZINE

Toby Orton from Plain Magazine features Eliza Gosse's work. He writes:

Delving into social issues of national identity and immigration, artist Eliza Gosse focuses on the post-war houses built for European migrants in her home country of Australia in the 50s, 60s and 70s. In her striking oil paintings, Gosse’s style combines clean, color blocked geometric forms that call to mind the utopian ideals of suburban planning with a ‘nostalgic
inflection’. The ‘Suburban Modernism’ that she has created is a response to her interests in design history, the initial impact of inexpensive post-war architecture on communities and the way that the design’s influence and meaning is viewed over time. In her paintings of the Australian (and to a lesser extent, American) suburbs she celebrates an era of design that mocks the unflattering stereotype of bland suburbia and celebrates the unabashed invention of the time.

ELIZA GOSSE IN 'THE IDEAL HOME' AT PENRITH REGIONAL GALLERY

The Ideal Home presents a history of the 20th century Australian home told through household objects, furniture and design classics from the MAAS Collection.

For much of the 20th century Australia enjoyed one of the highest rates of home ownership in the world. This situation emerged following the landmark ‘Harvester Judgement’ of 1907, which enshrined a ‘living wage’, and enabled ordinary workers to purchase a home and support a family.

Post war affluence, technology, mass manufacturing and the ready availability of goods, created both a consumer base and desire. In this setting, suburbs grew and homes became our castles. Australians enthusiastically adopted international trends in architecture, interior furnishings and design. Labour saving devices liberated us from domestic drudgery and increased the time available for leisure. Indoors and outdoors Australians aspired to a lifestyle centred upon the comfort, style, amenity and function of the home.

The Ideal Home presents a history of the 20th century Australian home told through household objects, furniture and design classics from the MAAS Collection. See more of The Ideal Home including modernist design and artworks at MAAS Powerhouse, Ultimo.

The Ideal Home is a partnership between the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences and Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest.

The exhibition suite features works across the site from the following Australian artists:

  • Cope Street Collective: Mathew Cooper and Colin Kinchela
  • Karla Dickens
  • Victoria Garcia
  • Richard Goodwin
  • Blake Griffiths
  • eX de Medici
  • Catherine O’Donnell
