Solo show by Andrew Hazewinkel. Dates: September 9 – October 28, 2023. Opening reception: September 9 at 18:00 hrs.
Sealed Earth Gallery presents a solo show of the artist Andrew Hazewinkel. We present a collection of small-scale ceramic sculptures characterized as chimeric creatures, part human, part spirit, part vegetal, and part atmospheric. Humming with a quiet sense of vitality, Hazewinkel’s figures seem to have been captured whilst moving toward or away from a permanent state of being. Melding the iconic and aniconic while delicately balancing a refined aesthetic with a visual language of rupture, here the artist plays with enigma and power of paradox, resulting in a suite of sculptures that appear ancient and contemporary, carnal and mindful, human and supernatural.
Andrew Hazewinkel is an Australian artist living and working in Athens. His artistic practice spans sculptural and photographic practices. His works have been presented at Villa Empain, The Boghossian Foundation Brussels, Art Athina, the 31st Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Art, the National Gallery of Victoria, The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, The Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Centre for Contemporary Photography Melbourne. In this exhibition, his first solo exhibition in Greece, he presents a collection of small sculptures and recent photographic works.
