The symbiosis between science, poetry and art inspires the beguiling oeuvre of Angela Valamanesh. Primarily known for her biomorphic ceramic sculptures, this exhibition also celebrates the artist’s evocative drawings, watercolours, and mixed media works from her developing style of the late 1990s until present. Shown as part of the 2019 South Australian Living Artists Festival, Angela Valamanesh: About being here is the newest addition to the JamFactory Icon series, an annual solo exhibition honouring the achievements of South Australia’s most influential artists working in craft-based media.

JamFactory Icon Angela Valamanesh: About being here is a JamFactory touring exhibition.

JamFactory Angela Valamanesh: About being here has been assisted by the South Australian Government through Arts South Australia and the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, Contemporary Touring Initiative.

Angela Valamanesh acknowledges the assistance of the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts. Angela Valamanesh is represented by GAG Projects, Greenaway Art Gallery, and Adelaide.

“Art like science can help teach us about who we are what we are made of and in doing so show us the importance of recognising that we are part of a whole.” – Angela Valamanesh
