Contemporary artist and educator at The Gordon, Hannah Bertram, is one of thirty-six artists featured in New Romantics: Darkness and Light in Australian Art by Simon Gregg. The book launch is Saturday 8 October at Arc One Gallery, 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne at 2:00pm.
The publishers state on the Scholarly Publishing website:
Something is happening in Australian art today. We are witnessing the resurgence of ideas that took root centuries ago – a return to passion in art, and a return to atmosphere and awe. Historians called it Romanticism; a disposition for melancholic yearning, for communion with nature, for the sublime. Australian artists, in countless numbers, are engaging with these themes again today.
Other artists in the book include: Rob Bartolo, Hannah Bertram, Magdalena Bors, William Breen, Sheridan Brown, Jane Burton, Jason Cordero, Peter Daverington, Iris Fischer, Dale Frank, Briele Hansen, Louise Hearman, Bill Henson, Petrina Hicks, Annie Hogan, Mark Kimber, Chris Langlois, Richard Lipp, Joanna Logue, Tony Lloyd, Susan Milne, John Morris, Saffron Newey, Sarah Nguyen, Izabela Pluta, Robbie Rowlands, Kathryn Ryan, Natalie Ryan, Sam Shmith, Sophia Szilagyi, Camilla Tadich, Juha Tolonen, Stephen Wickham, Philip Wolfhagen, Greg Wood, and Joel Zika.
And you will be able to see Bertram’s ephemeral work at Lorne Sculpture 2011 on Sunday 16 October 9:00 – 4:00 (1 day only).
