Louise Olsen & Stephen Ormandy: The Art of Dinosaur Designs

OLSEN Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of Stephen Ormandy and Louise Olsen’s major survey exhibition The Art of Dinosaur Designs at the Hazlehurst Regional Gallery.

The exhibition is a colourful fusion of art, design and fashion, referencing Olsen and Ormandy’s iconic design label Dinosaur Designs and explores the artful and aesthetic prevalent throughout their work. The exhibition features a series of more than 40 large-scale sculptural forms that celebrate the pair’s thirty year creative partnership.

Gathering highlights of Olsen and Ormandy’s creative career, Louise Olsen & Stephen Ormandy: The Art of Dinosaur Designs features works such as Series 8: Movement (2011), a set of eight disks in dazzling colours commissioned to mark the fifth anniversary of Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA).  More recent commissions include Loop (2014), a wall-hung sculpture evocative of  “the rhythmic lines created when you drop a rock in a lake” as Olsen describes it. Its soft colour transitions are a constant to Collar Bone (2014) which is characterised by chroma clashes from orange to blue rendered in a painterly application.
