Hello Dollies presents a range of artwork by accomplished artists who, from the 1940s until the present day, have identified with the symbolic and psychological resonance of ‘the doll’. From the portrayal of personal despair to the satirical exposé of socio-political issues, the human condition is scrutinized. This exhibition’s starting point is a painting by celebrated artist Joy Hester, whose poignant depiction of Gethsemane, a doll belonging to childless art patron Sunday Reed, will underpin the exhibition’s focus on dolls as human substitutes and holders of desires, hopes, fears and fantasies.
Artists include: Peter Baka, Penny Byrne, Gunter Christmann, Will Coles, Matt Coyle, Destiny Deacon, Adrienne Doig, Fiona Fenech, Rosalie Gascoigne, Barbara Hanrahan, Di Holdsworth, Linde Ivimey, Kate Just, Deborah Kelly, Alasdair Macintyre, Tracey Moffatt, Mirka Mora, Janet Parker-Smith, Joan Ross, Sally Smart, Kat Smolynec and Peter Spilsbury.
