Exhibition opening 

To be opened by the Mayor of Maroondah City Council on Thursday 15 November 2018 at 6pm at ArtSpace at Realm.

Followed by a talk from the artists about the process of imagining and creating their captivating works – from the intimate to the monumental.

About the exhibition

After-comers cannot guess the beauty been. 
A line from ‘Binsey Poplars (felled 1879)’ by Gerard Manley Hopkins.

Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison present a floor-to-ceiling printed landscape on the ArtSpace wall, featuring portholes of a moving collage.

Ripples in the Open invites the community to join the artists in the exploration of things hidden in plain sight.

The large scale wall narrative, with its unique landscape of jostling and poetic imagery, will immerse you in an imaginary and not-so imaginary world.

About the artists

Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison are crafty, visual storytellers from Melbourne who use paper as their primary medium for making collages, artists' books, prints, zines and drawings.

Earlier this year Council commissioned Gracia and Louise’s public artwork A Weight of Albatross which is now installed above the stairwell void at Realm.

The work combines kinetic sculpture with sustainability, and extends their expertise with intricately cut paper to a grand scale using laser-cut Perspex and steel.
