Renowned contemporary artist to share insight on his career

ELEGANCE and simplicity are two words many have used to describe the artwork of Hossein Valamanesh.

Valamanesh is in Bundaberg as the artist in residence at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery as well as presenting his analysis of his work at the Literary Notions book club event tonight.

The Iranian-born Australian artist has had his artwork exhibited across Australia and the world over the years, with his art heavily influenced by his Iranian heritage as well as his connection to Australia.

Valamanesh's installation, After Rain, will mark the fourth installation in The Vault, as part of the Literary Notions installation series.

"After Rain was inspired by one of the scenes from the play When the Rain Stops Falling, where a tree comes from above and stays within the scene for a number of minutes," he said.

"In the installation at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery I have animated the tree to whirl within the gallery space."

During Valamanesh's time in Bundaberg, he will present a special artist talk tomorrownight offering a rare glimpse into a career that has spanned more than 35 years.
