Please join me on the 21st November at 2pm at Gosford Regional Gallery.
I have been asked by the Directors of the Gallery to present an artists talk. I will be discussing my practice, inspirations and giving some insight into my work including my piece ‘Witching Hour’ which received a commended award and is currently on display as part of the Gosford Art Prize.
Very excited to announce that I was commended for my work ‘Witching Hour’ at last nights opening at Gosford Regional Gallery.
“I enjoyed the filmic, brooding qualities of this image, very Australian Gothic in its suggested malevolence and the play between light and shadow.”
Exhibition is on until 29 November.
Saturday 5 September 3-5pm
5 – 27 September
This exhibition will seek to celebrate the artistic practices of Australia’s emerging and established contemporary artists alongside their international contemporaries in order to highlight the universal theme of connection or disconnection to place. The main focus of the exhibition will deal with the cultural and historical relationships forged within the aesthetic experiences of these artists.

Join us for opening drinks for Rhiannon Hopley’s first solo exhibition ‘Discovering Locations’
A Series of photographs : The Lost and Forgotten Locations of Sydney and surrounds.
12 AUGUST 6 – 8PM
12 – 23 AUGUST
“Exploring the often-disconnected relationship between nature, the urban landscape and the human condition.
Hopley photographs abandoned and forgotten urban sites, documenting the effects of nature and the elements on these places over time. While her work is often absent of a person or figure, there is an emotional human undertone as she tries to convey the deep emotional state of nostalgia and the profound melancholy associated with longing for someone, or something. The locations and shadowy scenes correlate with our emotional selves, mirroring feelings of isolation, emptiness and sorrow through absence and stillness.
Drawing on humanity’s fascination and obsession with apocalyptic theory and mythology, Hopley captures these abandoned urban sites as poetic symbols of a hypothetical post-apocalyptic wasteland. All that remains in these worlds is a vague trace of human existence and a picturesque melancholia that stays with the viewer long after leaving the gallery.”
