Celebrated Australian Artists and co-founders of Dinosaur Designs Stephen Ormandy and Louise Olsen unveil their latest body of work, in partnership with the Olsen Irwin gallery, at ART15 London, held at Olympia from 21 – 23 May 2015. It is the first time that the pair has shown at the London art fair, and their works will appear alongside other artists from the Olsen Irwin stable, including works by Lucien Freud, Henry Moore, Nicholas Harding and John Olsen.
Stephen Ormandy’s paintings (below) and sculptures are inspired by the natural world. The foundation of his painting is a strong design element together with a great understanding of the nuance and potential of colour and form. He works with solid colour and soft organic shapes which bounce off each other, creating an enduring vibrancy. In the works on show in London,
Ormandy explores the intersection of the natural world with the digital age, using line, tone, shape and colour. His sculptures, created from marble and gesso on pine, bring a 3D element to this exploration of the relationship between the digital and natural world.
Louise Olsen will be exhibiting a collection of Liquid Moon tables and her new Moon table inspired by natural forms (below) including a selection of new pieces which resemble artful agate forms with mesmerising patterns. The colours range from cool blues to vibrant warm orange and red tones, with a smaller table in a rich yellow. Each table is a created by hand in the iconic Dinosaur Design resin.
