Inhale – an exhibition at Artereal Gallery, interview with the artist Noula
This November, Artereal Gallery in Rozelle presents the second exhibition of a trilogy by multi-disciplinary artist and psychotherapist Noula Diamantopoulos. The exhibition, entitled Inhale – receiving the divine gift, seeks to examine our awakening and arrival on the planet. It follows the artist’s preliminary exhibition, Breathing Space, which sought to explore the invisible life force, or ‘the preparatory void’, that surrounds us at a time where we are mere ideas of Being.
The new exhibition showcases a series of encaustic artwork. Noula has used of hot, pigmented wax to draw attention to the unpredictable nature of the divine gift of breath. The exhibition also includes a curated selection of sculptures that featured in her prior exhibition, Breathing Space, in a bid to create a narrative and showcase the continuum of the artist’s creative practice.
Arts reporter Chris Virtue spoke to Noula at the opening last Wednesday night.
