Hush is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary exhibition that seeks to provide a space of refuge and comfort away from the cacophony of everyday life. Visual artist Yoon Park and composer Oli Cameron will provide differing artistic responses to the concept of silence and engage the audience’s senses of sight, sound and touch.
Yoon will present a collection of oil paintings that capture the beauty of silent moments in our everyday. These works ask the viewers to stop, come closer and listen to the hidden shades and whispers of seemingly mundane objects.
Oli will present two Hushes for saxophone and voices. Each work will help us ponder the space between silence and sound and the balances of reprieve and loneliness that come from isolation. Opening night will feature live performances of these works by Alice Morgan, Marcus Whale, Zara Stanton and Olga Solar.
Opening Wednesday 31st October | 6-8pm.
Continues until Friday 9th November.
Gallery open Tuesday–Sunday 11am–5pm.
About the Artists
Yoon Park is a visual artist based in Sydney. She has studied painting at the Sydney College of Arts and works mostly with oil and acrylic paint on canvases. Yoon Park experiments with combining traditional and contemporary imagery and the power of image as language. Park’s main subjects are everyday objects and found objects, sometimes cropped or transformed to provide new perspectives on “the familiar”.
Oli Cameron studied composition at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. As a composer, his stylings are eclectic and have ranged from post-minimalist chamber work, to musical theatre about Pauline Hanson. His most recent work, The Colour Orange, won Critic's Pick at Sydney Fringe and Emerging Artist Award at Adelaide Fringe 2018. He currently teaches composition at primary and secondary level which is a good challenge.
