Sadie Chandler at Shepparton Art Museum

— Wednesday 24th October 2018

Arcade 2017 2018
Sadie Chandler has installed her new wallpaper 'Arcade' on Shepparton Art Museum's 12m Drawing Wall.

During a residency at the Cité Internationale in Paris, ready to visit the painting galleries at Le Louvre to sketch the classics, Sadie unexpectedly found them closed, and so faced instead the sculpture galleries.  This new series of wallpaper 'Arcade' developed from these visits.

From 11 August - 24 October, 'Arcade' will cover the Shepparton Art Museum's 12m long Drawing Wall.

This commission follows her installation of 'The weight of images' in ACCA's 2017/18 group exhibition 'Unfinished Business'.

Of her work, Chandler writes: 

I’m interested in how images work, how we see them through the inescapable trap of art history. Iconic works of art in museums are already known before we see them in the flesh, so we’re always stuck with embedded memories of them. As an artist, it’s impossible for me to forget all the images that have come before the ones that I make. I’m aware of being trapped but also propelled by these images and histories.

She welcomes commissions to install her wallpaper in both private and public spaces.  For more information contact the gallery and visit her website: www.sadiechandler.com

Since its establishment in 1984, the Charles Nodrum Gallery’s exhibition program embraces a diversity of media and styles - from painting, sculpture & works on paper to graphics and photography; from figurative, geometric, gestural, surrealist & social comment to installation & conceptually based work.
