Exhibition review: Nani Puspasari, Manningham Art Gallery

Published

If you’re local to Melbourne, you may well have seen the works of Nani Puspasari in your travels, for instance an office wall here, a mural there, or even a Uoouoo over here (that one was in Prahran). Whether you’ve seen them or not, nothing quite prepares you for a Puspasari solo show, a veritable carnevale of quirk and colour. Her latest one , Childhood Cheeks, Grown-Up Madness, is currently showing at Manningham Art Gallery in Melbourne’s Doncaster East.

The media Puspasari primarily uses to let us glimpse into her world are a combination of 2D paintings and, more predominantly, 3D ceramic sculptures varying in size from half a metre tall to perhaps 20 centimetres high (the majority of which are on sale for decent prices). The meaning and relevance of the exhibition’s title is explained well through the artist’s statement, which mentions the ‘subtle interplay between innocence and experience’, summarising her exhibition as the ‘delightful chaos inherent in the shift from carefree childhood to the intricate realities of grown-up life’.
