Waves exhibition

Mik Shida wraps up at the Brisbane Powerhouse

TAMARA AND THE DEMON by SHIDAHaving toured this exhibition through Melbourne and Sydney, it’s fitting that it’s final stop is his hometown of Brisbane at the iconic Powerhouse. Mythographies is a multi-layered record of Shida’s progress as an artist, these painting and hardwood sculptural works let his imagination lead the path, creating a series of self proclaimed ‘spiritscapes’.

Mythographies, presented by Mild Manners Gallery and The Brisbane Powerhouse opens tomorrow evening, Wednesday 13th and then continues until September 8.

More details here. 

Never one to rest for long, he’s also mid way through an impressive mural covering the Creek st tunnel in Brisbane City before he jets of to Europe. Below is a picture taken this morning, still very much a work in progress, we’ll post some images of the completed wall next week.




Opening: Keegan Gibbs ‘Zuma’ at the RVCA Gallery in Sydney

Tonight is the second opening at RVCA’s Downstairs Gallery in Paddington. Featuring a photo series by contributing US artist Keegan Gibbs, ‘Zuma’ was shot in one day on two rolls of 35mm colour negative film in Malibu, California.

Simplicity and nostalgia is the key to this series in whole, you’ll start noticing the relationship between the form (umbrella), the people, and the environment itself, the beach. Each frame has its own story. Continuing on the motif of shooting from behind his subjects that is prevalent in much of his other work, Keegan takes out the element of peoples faces, forcing the viewers attention first to the umbrella, then to the small details of the frame: a brand of sunscreen, the array of beach accessories, and the body language of the people, who were shot without knowledge of the photographers presence.

Opening tonight (January 30th) 6-9pm
RVCA Downstairs Gallery
82 Oxford st, Paddington
Exhibition remains open for a month
