SUN DRUNK MEMORIES

In the not so distant future, we will inevitably find ourselves standing on the cusp of autumn, begrudgingly preparing ourselves once again for the ever wetter, ever colder months that are sure to come. As we find ourselves at the end of this long, dusty stretch of season, still groggy with afternoon warmth, we look back on the vibrating mass that was summer, trying to remember exactly what it is will be missing over the cooler months.

 

 

NG Art Gallery will host Sun-Drunk Memories: A Patchwork of Moments from the Edge of a Season, Tuesday 17 January – Saturday 4 February 2012, featuring paintings by NG Artists Rachel Fairfax, Eric Lobbecke, Lydia Miller, Mia Ng and Anita Tesoriero who have drawn on memories of summers gone and hopes for summers to come to illustrate the tiny details behind the hidden pleasures of the 3 month sun-drunk season. These miniature canvases, 30 x 30cm, explore the elusive and fleeting moments of summer that aim to sustain the viewer until the next time the sun shows its face.

Sun-Drunk Memories asks the viewer to stand on this cusp, perched on a diving board high above a pool of autumn and the chilly depths of winter and experience the last warming rays of sun before we’re all forced to dive in.

 

 

 

We search for the feeling of sun warming salt covered eyelids as the almost too-responsible thought of reapplying sunscreen fades into oblivion, drowned by the quiet tumble of waves licking a crusty shore. We miss the scratchy feeling of bed sheets enveloping a too-pink, still-sandy frame at the end of a day, exhausted from the summer air heavy with laziness. We try to recall that perfect harmony of frangipanis and jasmine dancing on the senses as a barefoot sunset lingers on the horizon and wait expectantly for the next explosion of fleshy-orangey goodness as a knife pierces the leathery skin of the season’s first mango. Summer has come.

The exhibition will be opened on Tuesday 17 January at NG Art Gallery, Chippendale, from 6 - 8pm.
