the culprit club

New kids on the block, The Culprit Club, have teamed up with No Cure magazine and Stupid Krap to host a massive gallery launching exhibition titled – Opposing Offenders, Crimes Against Humanity.

Challenging the ideas of the outspoken majority, this exhibition reacts to the traditional projections of ‘crimes in society’ and responds to the demoralising acts of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’.

This HUGE line up showcases one, exclusive original artwork from 18 artists from around the country including:

Aeon Flys,  Alex Le Hours, Bafcat, Ekaer, Graham Hare, Irok, John Avanti, Kentaro Yoshida, Kiss/Ispy, Lauren Webster, Luke Henery, Lusid Art, Ohnoes, Ox King, Saul Attack, Soda Mouf, Unwell Bunny and 1337.

The Opposing Offenders exhibition will launch the official opening of The Culprit Club, Brisbane’s newest art gallery in Winn Lane, Fortitude Valley this Friday, July 15th at 6pm!

Event sponsors – Balter Brewing / Ironlak 

About The Culprit Club: Born from creative frustration, artistic adoration and a hollaback history of bad decisions, comes The Culprit Club, a pocket-sized gallery and retail store.

Photos: Jae Copp at RVCA Corner Gallery – Melbourne

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.
