Only Dancing By Stephen Ormandy

A rhythmic dance of shape and color.

A real treat for art lovers in general and abstract art aficionados in particular, the Only Dancing exhibition brings together an array of abstract oil on linen paintings and resin sculptures. Opening at SoHo’s Olsen Gruin, the show is Stephen Ormandy’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. The Australian artist uses vibrant colors and bold shapes to create mesmerizing compositions. “I’m looking for vibration and rhythm, the play of line creating positive and negative space, searching for tonal balance through contrast or harmony, while developing chroma relationships that hug or repel,” explains Ormandy.

While his oil on linen paintings bring his creative world to life in a two-dimensional form, his sculptures feature architectural and organic forms. Regardless of the medium, the artist’s work has a distinctive design aesthetic that uses color as well as form as a foundation for abstract compositions. The name of the exhibition has a subtle double meaning. On one hand, it refers to a certain freedom – the freedom of focusing on a single pursuit wholeheartedly. On the other, it aims to protect the scared act of creation. Throughout the artworks, color, form, and space flow together in a beautiful rhythm. Only Dancing’s opening reception will take place at Olsen Gruin on March 9, 6-8PM. The show will be open from March 7 to April 10, 2018. Photographs© Stephen Ormandy.
