Historic portraiture, narrative, and the significance of iconic imagery to collective memory and identity are have been of continuous interest in German-born Nana Ohnesorge’s art practice. In this solo exhibition, Changing Colours, Ohnesorge explores the relations between indigenous and non-indigenous people and the stories of cultural crossovers, such as in the case of Bennelong or William Buckley. By literally and conceptually playing with the appropriated imagery, possibilities emerge by the sheer process of art making and Ohnesorge’s habitual use of lurid candy colours, resulting in a new series of paintings, drawings and sculptures which seek to stimulate and challenge.
