Lamington Drive is pleased to present Role Models by Timba Smits — a series of exquisite portraits.
It’s been 15 years since Timba’s first (and only) solo show but he hasn’t been idle in the intervening years. Since his 2001 debut exhibition, Self Titled, this award-winning illustrator has ventured on to refine and evolve his iconic style while exhibiting in and curating a large number of successful local and international group shows.

It has been close to five years between artist Jae Copp‘s last solo exhibition, picking up right where he left he’s exhibiting series of distinctive new works at the RVCA Corner Gallery in Melbourne.
Paralleloland opened early April and runs for just over a month until May 7. The work is described by Copp as a ‘lost collection of cosmic maps and artefacts from the atlas of imagination’. He has long used allegories and abstract twists to take personal and social views out of context, into a surreal, and at times almost semi-nonsensical way using an array of medium including paper treatments, hand stitching, embossing and sculptural elements rendered with meticulous brush-based illustration.
Through the series he clumsily explores and appropriates the theory of parallel universes and time travel by providing his shape-shifting figures with new found maps and artefacts to guide them through the universe as they continue to mimic learnings of a bygone era. With these new found tools they are able to navigate through time and space in a relentless quest for both, social and planetary harmony.
