Vast Interiors 2016

Vast Interiors

30 July – 28 August

A unique installation that fuses decorative and fine art pieces

Kate Owen Gallery & Sounds Like Home have collaborated on a unique installation; showcasing how Indigenous artworks expressing ancient themes and landscapes can enhance contemporary living spaces. 

The ‘white cube’ ideology of the gallery space will be overturned, as curators develop five distinctly different rooms that offer fresh perspectives on the art of home décor. 

 A delightful juxtaposition of the chic and traditional to create diverse, out of the box aesthetics that embody the essence of modern day luxury living in Sydney’s Inner West.

 

  

  


black + white - July 2016

black + white | 2 july - 17 july

We are excited to announce that our July exhibition will be a diverse show of contemporary Indigenous artworks inspired by ancient Dreamings and the Australian landscape.

Included will be works by widely acclaimed artists Barbara Weir, Dorothy Napangardi, Nyilyari Tjapangati, Warlimpirringa Tjapaltjarri and Yinarupa Nangala. The work of these artists is featured in many of the major galleries and collections in Australia and internationally.

Geoff has recently travelled to the Northern Territory to commission works specially painted in black and white for this exhibition; most notably by artists not known for works in this colour palette. The stand out is this incredible 3m piece by the granddaughter of Minnie Pwerle, Charmaine Pwerle. This artwork will take pride of place in the exhibition.

Stay tuned - more information to come!

New 'In Situ' Feature on our Website!

We have listened to your feedback and developed this great new 'in situ' feature to help you find the perfect piece!

Simply click on the artwork you are interested in. You will see to the left of the image there are the artwork details and 'actions' you can take:

If you select 'see art on the wall' you will be taken to a new page:

On the top left hand corner there is the 'adjustments' feature, where you can rotate and adjust the artwork and background size. It will also give you the actual artwork size to help guide you.

There is also the 'backgrounds' feature where you can select one of our settings, or see what the artwork will look like on a range of coloured backgrounds (and if you are really tech savy, you can add a custom image url!) :

 

Of course, it is early days and we will add and improve to it as we get feedback. Make sure you let us know what you think!

And remember, if you would like to see how an artwork would look exactly in your space, please contact one of our friendly art consultants who will be able to do a 'digital hang' for you, or arrange a home trial.

We hope you enjoy this great new feature!

Best Wishes, The KOG Crew

"I feel very honoured to be selected for such an important event which includes such an important Australian building.

I hope they like my paintings, they have gone from sand to canvas and now to the opera house, it’s a clever way to show many people our culture."
