Opening: Sean Morris ‘Cosmic Dread’ at Lamington Drive – Melbourne

We’re excited to hear that ex Perth, now Melbourne based Sean Morris will be opening a solo exhibition in the coming weeks with Lamington Drive. No doubt this show will be amazing, so if you’re in Melbourne don’t miss it!

Lamington Drive is pleased to present Cosmic Dread by Sean Morris. Marking his first solo outing since exhibiting in Madrid in 2013, Cosmic Dread features a series of new paintings on wood, print tapestries and painted vases, all adorned with a selection of Sean’s favourite subject matter—freedom vehicles, snakes vs snake-people, and powerful, slightly disgruntled girls with swords.

Morris’ eclectic work flickers between the trashy and the beautiful, manifesting in curious studies of outsider living and colourful homages to low culture. Symbols of evil are given loving twists, and nostalgic tributes are made to things that probably never happened, but which Morris wishes had.

Opening: ‘High Contrast’ solo exhibition by Elliott ‘Numskull Routledge at MMPG – Sydney

Opening this Friday night at MMPG in Sydney, this will be Numskull’s first Sydney exhibition in over three years.

Since his last Sydney exhibition in 2012 Elliott Routledge, or Numskull as he’s been known as for the past 15 years, has been working on large scale murals and outdoor installations for the likes of Art & About Festival, and most recently his month long residency at the prestigious Museums Quartier in Vienna, Austria.

Working across both bold, expressive canvas work and hand made sculptures, Elliott’s practice uses a variety of mark making techniques, strategic colour pairing and abstract composition. Hard edged blocks of pattern sit next to smears of multicoloured paint, and tangled scribbles of colour sit next to gradient filled shapes.

High Contrast is the artist’s reaction to human conditioning in regards to materialism & consumerism. These artworks are embedded with shapes and symbols that have been chosen to represent certain aspects of human culture and the potential future we live in. With subtle references to rave culture, the work uses imagery and lyrics from classic songs as a vehicle to highlight these conditions and ultimately encourage a new way of thinking.

Our good friends at East Editions have just released Edition 009, a series of limited edition screen prints by Sydney based artist Georgia Hill.

EE009_TOH3

The design was created by Georgia by first illustrating 3 separate drawings, then physically tearing them up into strips and finally compiling the pieces together to create one final artwork. The design was then hand screen printed in 3 different colours, bringing a new aesthetic to Georgia’s work which is usually only done in black and white. This is also the first time Georgia has offered prints of her artwork for sale.

EE009_TOH4

This hand screen printed Edition 009 is available in black, silver and bronze on bright white 340gsm paper, with each limited to only 10 prints. All prints are A2 size, hand signed and numbered by Georgia Hill and are now available to order online with FREE shipping Australia wide.
