Chanel Tobler ‘A House in the Sky’ 16th – 26th February

b. 1990, St. Gallen, Switzerland 
Chanel Tobler’s work explores the fickleness and the fraught of our here and of our being. She is guided by her interpersonal relationships, place and space, time, nostalgia of home, feeling, and the dichotomies of our lived everyday. 
Tobler refers to herself as a drawer, with paper being her most defining material. Used for its tactility and immediacy, paper and the drawing medium to Tobler feels tender enough to house the most private feelings, and versatile enough to bear the loudest emotions. It is a practice that gives way to an intuitive exploration that is inherent to Tobler’s immediate experiences and sense-making of her surroundings.

Tobler currently lives and works on Gadigal land, the unceded land of the Eora Nation. Graduating from the National Art School in Sydney with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2017, Tobler works on personal and commissioned projects
