Opening Night – ‘Rope-A-Dope’ by Esther Olsson

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us in the freshly painted forest green gallery for the opening of Esther Olsson’s ‘Rope-A-Dope’. It was an amazing turnout and we hope you all had as much fun as we did celebrating our first show for the year.

Rope-A-Dope commonly refers to a boxing technique. For Esther it is also a life tactic – absorbing and processing situations before attacking them. The show consists original paintings of gouache on paper depicting diary entry-style images reflecting on themes of fighting back, having a cry, fearing confrontation, and her personal representation of power. Amongst these detailed pieces were a number of more paired back paintings of swamp-like creatures as well as smaller hand-cut wooden pieces of some of the reoccurring symbols in her work.

Massive thanks to the local legends at Bodriggy Brewing Co. for sponsoring the event and keeping the crowd happy and hydrated on such a balmy evening!

‘Rope-A-Dope’ runs until March 25!

Love LD
