Olsen Irwin | Sydney Contemporary Success

2013’s inaugural Sydney Contemporary art fair has drawn to a close with galleries, artists, collectors and the public happy all round. The four day affair from 19 – 22 September was full of great discoveries, surprises and people! The opening night quite literally stopped traffic – proving that the art scene in Sydney is as vibrant as ever.

Tim Olsen, director of Olsen Irwin, reported to Clive Paget of Limelight Magazine, “Sales have been extremely strong, defying the climate on the street,”… “After the first day of the fair we had at least 30 new faces in our stand that we’d never met before. Our experience has exceeded expectations – we’ve found it to be a vibrant event that was also a commercial success.” – Limelight Magazine


Stephen Ormandy | Share Design | Sydney Contemporary

Share Design were quick to spot Stephen Ormandy‘s beautiful new sculptures that will be on show at Sydney Contemporary Art Fair this weekend. Following the works’ progress via Ormandy’s instagram, Share Design instantly fell in love.

“This body of work is a continuation of Stephen’s last exhibition, which was celebrated for the series of bold colour-blocked works. This collection however is a beautiful step to the side, as Ormandy has explored the same shapes but in a ‘softer’ palette of materials – Ormandy has combined the earthiness of marble and black stone, with the beauty of bronze.” – Share Design
