Stanley Street Gallery is delight to be presenting Andjana Pachkova’s second solo exhibition.

Fernweh is a German word, in some way akin to Die Sehnsucht (the title of the artist’s previous solo show in 2018). It means 'far-sickness', or a longing for far-away unexplored places. It is, in a way, a nostalgia for what has never been, or more precisely, for where one has never been.

Fernweh has been used by the Artist in the show’s title because, for her, it encompasses the basic notion that when we long for far-away places, we are longing for freedom of movement, freedom of imagination and for the freedom to explore.

Andjana Pachkova states: The experience of ‘fernweh’ has been especially prescient due to the events that have unfolded internationally this year, 2020. 

About Andjana Pachkova

Ukrainian-born, Russian-raised, American-educated Wall Street lawyer, Andjana Pachkova now lives in Sydney with her young family. The artist has been considering the concept of fernweh – a deep feeling of longing - for some time now – and wanted to imbue this emotion into her latest collection, Fernweh: Into the Blue.

Andjana gains inspiration for her work from nature and the landscape, from music and more recently she has found further inspiration in her love of the ocean and newly found passion for surfing.

The catalogue for this exhibition includes an essay from acclaimed Australian artist, Richard Goodwin. He says of the artist (extract): ... she exposes herself to the chaos and luminosity of the ocean as though it were her palette...AP is a streak of lightning, a shooting star.

The gallery is open to the public 3 days a week, if our opening hours do not suit you please phone or email to arrange a private viewing. Bookings are available here
