Summer Art Exhibition: I hope you get this: Raquel Ormella
The exhibition explores key themes that Ormella has consistently focused on: social and environmental activism; human and animal relationships; nationalism and national identity.
This exhibition includes work from a wide variety of media, and particularly draws on Ormella’s experimental textile works, revealing her strong relationship with textiles and a playful exploration of semiotics that are critical hallmarks of her work. Through the use of text and symbols woven into intricate embroidery work, Ormella invites viewers to engage with the themes of nationalism, political activism and environmental intervention.
Ormella’s works aim to stimulate contemplation, connection and engagement with issues of our times. Often, the materials she uses are things that we all have at home, or for the hoarders amongst us, in some of our cupboards. The title of this show, ‘I hope you get this’ refers not only to her own position within the works, but also to our reading of these various subjects.
I hope you get this: Raquel Ormella will be the artist’s first major solo exhibition and will show at Penrith Regional Gallery from Saturday November 30 to Sunday 22 March 2020.
