María José Benvenuto - The View
Fri-Sat: 11-6pm or by appointment Mon-Thu: 10-7pm: [email protected]
The View, a solo exhibition of artworks by Chilean / Italian artist María José Benvenuto, explores changing landscapes inspired by the artist’s nomadic past.
Growing up in the Santiago mountains instilled a deep appreciation of nature, which has continued into Benvenuto’s adult life. Today she lives in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, where her unwavering connection with the natural environment inspires her abstracted works. Benvenuto focuses on line and detail to build a narrative of daily life, the ocean waves, rolling hills, flora and fauna, alongside the built environment. Her fluid dance-like application of gestural brushstrokes and stains across the medium mimic an evolving world outside.
The View comprises 17 works created over the past few years, including Australian Foliage, Folds, A View from the Window and the Andes series.
