    27.07.16 Victoria Reichelt in 2016 John Leslie Art Prize

    Victoria Reichelt has been shortlisted as one of 47 finalists for the 2016 John Leslie Art Prize at Gippsland Art Gallery.

    Held biannually the John Leslie Art Prize awards a $20,000 prize to a contemporary Australian landscape painting, with the 2016 installment to be judged by Marielle Soni, Senior Art Consultant, Artbank Melbourne; Melinda Martin, Director, Linden New Art, Melbourne and artist Shannon Smiley who won the prize in 2014. The winner will be announced at an opening night held on Friday 2 September.

    Of her entered work, The Write to Be Forgotten, Reichelt states:

    “In the context of the landscape, the mountains of Post-it’s stand in for the natural environment, where mountains of trees would be more commonly represented. The work recognises the environmental impact of our day to day life, as we forfeit mountains of trees for mountains of paper. The work suggests that a benefit in the move from the physical to the digital, is that fewer elements of the natural landscape will be forfeited for the sake of human needs.’

    Art Collector feature


    Lossless, new painting by Reichelt and sculpture by Seton is an exhibition presented at JMG.

    Lossless is a data compression format without any loss of quality, often used for archiving or production purposes. The exhibition brings together two artists who make work about this idea of loss under digital advancements.

    What are we losing in the conversion of the world’s information and production from analogue to digital? Digital technologies have made our lives easier and quicker with the rapid sharing and storing of information, but this exhibition explores the idea that the texture and richness of our stories and information are being lost in the telling. The digital world does not entirely account for the complexity of smells, textures and flaws that make up the character and the tangibility of our world and its stories. Both artists explore this small but important loss in their unique way in this exhibition.
