From April 26th to May 18th, Common House Gallery will be showcasing new and collaborative artworks of Heather Sundquist, and Delilah Knuckley. In their exhibition, “Wonderlust” unreal environments explore the concepts of identity and space. The artists present a childlike perspective with unfolding experiences of awe and disappointment. Appealing to multiple senses, Heather & Delilah introduce a journey through literature, interactive sculpture, 2D, and storytelling. WONDERLUST is at once seeing the view at the top of the mountain, and the entire mountain.
Delilah Knuckley and Heather Sundquist are visual artists who live and work in Austin, Texas. Their work simultaneously invokes a sense of wonderment, of curiosity and melodic exploration. Both explore similar themes in their artistic endeavours; those involving the discovery of a sense of place, whether it is from a recollection or purely imaginative. Delilah works with a variety of media, including textiles, screen printing, collaborating on large scale installations, making books and zines and also creating imaginative atmospheric environments using pen and paint. Heather has spent time working with fabric, screen printing and collages, as of late she has been illustrating small gouache paintings based around the theme of adventuring.
Join the artists for an unveiling Saturday, April 26th at 6pm. Opening reception includes a guest appearance of fortune teller avatar Madame Maloney.
