DICHOTOMY - MAGPIE GALLERY
6 September - 25 September 2008
Chasm presents the culmination of all my research and thought. it employs a visual grammar comprised of the Romantic Sublime; the Modernistic Absolute and the Post-Modern Hallucinogenic. Each of these visual devices aim to create an experience of escape in that they involve a certain Self-forgetfulness. They intend to release the perceiver from the constraints of the human condition through some euphoric/sedated disconnection.
The resultant visual is akin to a type of doorway onto an existential abyss. There is the beginning of something and the end of another: a threshold that once crossed, will change everything. A dark formless uncertainty at once grotesque and beautiful - still, silent yet menacing.
COLLAGIST - THE GALLERY PREMISES
Curated by Leigh-Anne Niehaus
Our most common daily escape is sleep. We can lose our Selves in dreams, in nightmares, in orgasm (la petite mort - the little death)
Inspired by distinctive nightmare features of Dark Romanticism (the supernatural, the incubus, the horse, subversive love, death) these collage pieces relate to our current promiscuous age: contemporary eroticism. A surreal perverse multiform. We wish to liberate our Selves from the terrors - or understand the terrors that never leave us.
THOUGHT TRAFFIC - THE GALLERY PREMISES
Curated by Brenden Gray & Leigh-Anne Niehaus
30 june - 28 july 2007
“Thought Traffic” is an informal exhibition that consists of contemporary artists who produce drawings within the context of the everyday. The body of work illustrates the ways in which drawing permeates artists’ experience of daily life: image-making invades agenda’s, minutes, colonises the margins of official documents, takes possession of envelopes, serviettes, and plagues diaries and personal organisers.
