I'm a young hospitality student and freelancing artist from Adelaide, Australia. I am self-taught and I spend a lot of time practising and perusing online galleries and magazines for inspiration. I hope that one day I can do this full time.

Tiny Universes!

Chelsea Hantken: Tiny Universes Art Exhibition by ChelseaHantken
Hey there! I just wanted to let you know my exhibition is happening very soon! I am so excited/nervous/scared/ecstatic! If you happen to be in Adelaide in the next few weeks, please do pop in and take a look! There will be 30 pieces, all digitally painted and giclée printed. 

The theme is depression and anxiety. What I hope to achieve is that someone will walk through the exhibition and get a real sense of what it might be like to live with mental illness. I am trying to convey loneliness, and a sense of longing. Tiny Universes is named quite literally for the tiny spaces we confine ourselves to in times of depression and anxious struggle.

10 percent from each work sold during the exhibition will be donated to beyondblue. They are an organisation dedicated to helping the 3 million Australians living with depression or anxiety. This means a lot to me as they have helped me personally through my own struggles with anxiety and depression.

The exhibition will take place at the National Wine Centre of Australia. Why there? I work there :)
The opening night will coincide with "Uncorked" - a fortnightly event at the Wine Centre featuring wines by Skillogalee, live music and great eats.

So join me on opening night - January 30th from 4:30pm! Or anytime during the length of the exhibition - January 19th to February 9th. The Wine Centre is located on the corner or Botanic and Hackney Roads, open 8am - 9pm 7 days a week. They have an amazing wine bar and cafe, so why not make an afternoon of it! I hope to see you there!

Masking Depression by ChelseaHantken
Masking Depression
Silence weep and sadness roar
burdened back grew red and raw
crimson skylight above he saw
was always too dim to see much more ---Chelsea Hantken


This is a piece for my solo exhibition "Tiny Universes". The exhibition looks at the relationship between adoration, beauty, loneliness and the tiny spaces we confine ourselves to in times of depression and anxious struggle. 

This print is for sale in my Etsy shop & is expertly giclée printed on wonderful, textured etching paper.
