Solace showcases mixed-media works created during lockdown.
A member of the Australia Deaf community and fluent in Auslan, Selwyn became artistically re-motivated after settling in Collingwood. This rich, artistic environment inspired him to incorporate his lived experience, as well as ideas around Australian Deaf history, into his sculptural practice.
“The ocean of lockdown, dark, deep and unknown has impacted on my emotions to escape the indentations of ocean waves on the flight of the stairs, out of the mist, the peak, to embrace my solace.” – Selwyn Hoffmann
Selwyn was the winner of the 2020 Bundoora Homestead Art Centre Award at the 2020 Midsumma Australia Post Art Prize. The award included a supported three month exhibition at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, including public programming and professional mentoring opportunities. This exhibition is presented in partnership with Midsumma Festival.
