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..."

ANTOINETTE O'BRIEN AT LISMORE REGIONAL GALLERY

ANTOINETTE O'BRIEN

'KIDS THAT ARE BANNED FROM THE SQUARE'

Antoinette O’Brien’s subjects are tender tough. Just learning to smoke and fight and get dressed without being told how. They are the innovators, influencers and magicians on the streets. But there is something else that brings these sculptures together. Most of these kids sit, squat, lean on a support. Some quotidian piece of street junk like a milk crate. Except look at the glaze, the colour, it has been made significant. As has the folding stool, the wall, the rock…. These are the things that help tether us to our environment. These supports bring structural balance to each sculpture while putting forth a good question: if you are going to ban me from belonging, what will hold me now? - Jaimee Edwards

ART EDIT 'ARTISTS TO WATCH' : ANTOINETTE O'BRIEN

ART/EDIT MAGAZINE

Living in Lismore New South Wales where she runs Basso Studio, multi-disciplinary artist Antoinette O’Brien is currently working in clay, creating a series of busts and full-figure sculptures. Whilst she has always maintained a studio practice, Antoinette has come into her own recently, working towards a diploma in ceramics. The arresting faces of her ceramic forms gaze out with a lifelike intensity, revealing a consideration of painting techniques. High fired and glazed through multiple firings including reduction, oxidation and lustre, the clay is pushed to its limits, resulting in tearing and buckling that speaks to themes of endurance and precarity. With glazes made from scratch and tested extensively, Antoinette approaches her craft with discipline and was recently awarded the Hurford Hardwood Portrait Prize by esteemed artist Abdul Abdullah. Antoinette is preparing for a solo exhibition at Lismore Regional Gallery in August this year.

JANE DU RAND AT IPSWICH ART GALLERY

LIVING IN IPSWICH

Solo Exhibition, Jane du Rand

Jane du Rand was the recipient of the 2019 Regional Arts Development Fund which supported her to develop a new body of work focused on the architecture and history of Ipswich, Queensland. These works aim to capture the essence of the homes that reflect the lives of the people living in Ipswich and to create a ceramic record of “living in Ipswich”.

"The architect in me finds the urban fabric of Ipswich to be beautiful and unique. The collection of Queenslander houses and their positions in the streetscapes around Ipswich are amazing and I cannot go about my daily commutes without constantly being fascinated by the houses that pass me by. There are really beautiful historical homes, but there are also so many wonderful “everyday” Queenslanders of varying age and condition lived in by local people, and it is these homes and their occupants, and the way people use and live in their houses that interest me the most."

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
