Opening: ‘NEVERMIND’ by John Kaye at Goodspace, Sydney

John Kaye will present 50 new, unseen works for his latest series ‘Nevermind‘ on Monday 6th July at Goodspace gallery, Sydney.

By examining the Medieval Latin theory, memento mori under a new light, Nevermind showcases a representation of freedom and the forthcoming uncertainty of the future.

Transposing his experiences gained from living as a traveller into a series of souvenir style images, each new work represents a moment in time, reflecting on past encounters and escapades.

Working with acrylic, watercolour, aerosol and ink, John Kaye combines elements of his early graffiti and street influence with modern style characters and creative colour schemes.

In conjunction with the Nevermind exhibition, John Kaye will release a limited edition run of 150 unseen zines, each featuring a collection of illustrations and photography from his recent travels.

The zine will be available exclusively at Goodspace gallery for the duration on the Nevermind exhibition.

Nevermind is open for viewing 2PM – 4PM Monday 6th July and 1PM – 4PM Tuesday 7th July as well as a night of celebratory drinks on Wednesday 8th July from 6PM at Goodspace gallery, located at Level 11, 115 Regent Street, Chippendale, NSW.

Video: Fintan Magee – Man Bites Dog

Today the internet reveals Fintan Magee’s powerful new statement installation artwork and video titled ‘Man Bites Dog’ as an addition to ‘PROTEST’, a group exhibition opening at M16 Art Space in Canberra on Thursday 26 March 2015.

Originally created in an abandoned warehouse in Sydney’s Alexandria, Magee painted a large scale portrait of a man clutching a dog, very traditional to his larger than life, realistic mural style.

As he explains in detail in this video, the mural is symbolic for the relationship between the media mogul and the news consumer as well as the perception of lower level workers such as journalists being ‘lapdogs’. Magee also intelligently ties in the title and underlining statement of his mural from John B. Bogart’s historical aphorism in journalism, “When a dog bites a man that is not news, because it happens so often. But if a man bites a dog, that is news.”

In front of the mural stands a life size figure of a man that ceremoniously burns out as its body, made from copies of The Daily Telegraph newspaper become alight with flames. This bold and prevailing statement expresses Magee’s clear protest to the slander and smear of right wing media.

“Although ‘Man Bites Dog’ is a protest piece against the bias that exists amongst the broader Australian media landscape, I wanted to use the Rupurt Murdoch owned newspaper, The Daily Telegraph, as a core component of the artwork as I view this publication as emblematic of the issue,” said Mr Magee.
