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.
