Tweed Regional Gallery: Victoria Reichelt, Archive

Victoria Reichelt

4 Dec 2020 - 10 May 2021

Gold Coast-based artist Victoria Reichelt has been practising art for over twenty years. Known for her stunning realist paintings, Reichelt documents endangered artefacts and transitional spaces, both technological and temporal. Featuring works spanning Reichelt’s career, Archive brings together works that explore contemporary detritus, from stacks of books and magazines and empty public libraries, to plastic cups and takeaway containers. The exhibition will also feature works from her latest series of balloon-constructed images, that Reichelt describes as ‘sarcastic landscapes’. Reichelt said, “if we’re not careful they may be the only landscapes we have.”
