CROOKED MOUNTAIN TO THE BAY.
An exhibition by Michael and Gino Ambriano.
As brothers, Michael and Gino Ambriano’s paintings echo their family ties with strong connections to art and the Australian environment. This exhibition presents two differing bodies of work, each depicting their own experiences and their different inner journeys through the landscape.
‘Crooked Mountain to the Bay’ will be officially opened at the Moran Gallery, Sylvania on Thursday 6 April from 6pm to 8pm. The exhibition will be open from Friday 7 April to Sunday 25 June 2017, 10am to 4pm daily with free entry.
Michael’s current works reflect his recent experiences of the Warrumbungle region of New South Wales. Connections between emotions and the landscape are translated through the expression of colour and mass. Michael embodies his feelings on the canvases providing a point of contact with the audience to contemplate and share these experiences.
Gino’s works focus primarily on Botany Bay with its surrounding bush and wetlands. A trained photographer and sculptor, his oil paintings allow him to reflect on areas he spent time in when he was growing up that hold a deep and almost spiritual meaning for him. “I try to remove all human elements as I paint, to break down the bush scenes into their most purest and elementary forms.” he said.
