Jonny Niesche’s new solo exhibition, titled When I am very stressed, I make jam, expands the Sydney-based artist’s investigation of “the correlation and intersection between minimalism, abstraction and the sublime.” The artist’s diverging and experimental references from fashion to rock-and-roll album covers, music videos and childhood memories unify and materialise in his gradient artworks that employ light, colour and perspective to manipulate and enhance aesthetic experiences.

Running until June 27 at Melbourne’s Station Gallery, the exhibition presents Niesche’s new body of work which pays homage to Belgian fashion designer Dries Van Noten, renowned for his artful perspective and his inimitable use of colour. “Initially it came about after Amber was recovering from breast cancer,” Niesche explains. “Both avid Dries fans we watched online the F/W Women’s show in amazement… the next day I took Amber in to Harrolds in the city and bought the lilac/gray silk dress with the yellow rose image on the front. A beauty. It was a celebration of Amber’s recovery and something she could feel special wearing,” he adds.

Blurred and reverberating bee yellows of Sacred Emily, Llorando’s violet purples and rose reds of The Last Hot Poker; Niesche’s new work alludes to the colour palette used in Dries Van Noten’s 2019 Fall/Winter women’s collection. Abstracting the designer’s vision to create a pulsating field of illusion, an exhibition encourages the viewers to “question the boundaries of sculpture, installation and one’s perception of space.”
