Exhibition Details


Föenander Galleries is pleased to present Perennial Presence by Andrea Bolima

“Bolima’s are paintings to live with. Much as, with evolving light, weather and seasons, the bush changes over time, so too do Bolima’s paintings. They are constantly revealing, with the passage of time, new colours, shapes and feelings”. (Excerpt) Victoria Munn, 2024

Andrea Bolima (b.1991) is a visual artist, born in the Philippines and is now based in Naarm, Melbourne. Andrea Bolima’s adventures in aesthetics are fuelled by the visual qualities of experience from the actual process of painting. The artworks reveal the layering and unlayering of forms as structural elements slowly unfold and sometimes deteriorate. Bolima’s sensitivity to her surroundings can be seen from the subtle shifts in tone and delicate splashes of colour. Tonal variations demonstrate the different levels of intensity that emerge from the materiality of paint. Colours are blended and established on the canvas itself showing her mediation between careful considerations and random gestures.
