House of Breath No 5
190 x 190cm Oil on Linen
On seeing Arryn Snowballs House of Breath series the difficulty for the buying committee was choosing a favourite. Each of the series of large works provided a beautiful contemplative abstract study of opacity and depth.
Of his House of breath no 7 work, currently showing at the Gallery of NSW as a finalist in the Sulman Prize, Arryn says…”This painting floats on the edge of abstraction, a play between movement and stillness, structure and fluidity….A place to hover between awareness of being and loss of being.”
After much discussion the exquisite movement and tissue like layering of no 5 won us over.
Arryn has currently left his native Brisbane and is based in Berlin.
