Despa Hondros

This body of work is about transforming remembered feelings of landscape without trying to mirror reality, but to paint something between the actuality of the natural environment and something that is in the artist's head. Despa Hondros transforms images beyond their representational interpretation and uses heightened or subdued colours to create a sense of the experience or mood or feeling of being there.

Hondros has shown her works in a number of exhibitions in Melbourne, Australia including No Vacancy Gallery; Flinders Lane Gallery; Gallerysmith; Brightspace Gallery and 45 Downstairs Gallery, among others. She was also finalist for a number of art prizes including The Hutchins Prize for Drawing, Tasmania; The Adelaide Perry Prize for Drawing, New South Wales; The National Works on Paper Art Prize, Victoria and The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize, South Australia.
