‘Port of Call’ by Mark Alsweiler
Where: Koskela, Sydney
Opening: Saturday 21st May, 3pm
Opening this Friday night at MMPG in Sydney, this will be Numskull’s first Sydney exhibition in over three years.
Since his last Sydney exhibition in 2012 Elliott Routledge, or Numskull as he’s been known as for the past 15 years, has been working on large scale murals and outdoor installations for the likes of Art & About Festival, and most recently his month long residency at the prestigious Museums Quartier in Vienna, Austria.
Working across both bold, expressive canvas work and hand made sculptures, Elliott’s practice uses a variety of mark making techniques, strategic colour pairing and abstract composition. Hard edged blocks of pattern sit next to smears of multicoloured paint, and tangled scribbles of colour sit next to gradient filled shapes.
High Contrast is the artist’s reaction to human conditioning in regards to materialism & consumerism. These artworks are embedded with shapes and symbols that have been chosen to represent certain aspects of human culture and the potential future we live in. With subtle references to rave culture, the work uses imagery and lyrics from classic songs as a vehicle to highlight these conditions and ultimately encourage a new way of thinking.

Sydney artist Rae Begley’s incredible photographic series, Annapurna opens tomorrow night at Mild Manners Project Gallery in Surry Hills. It’s the last exhibition for a busy 2014 for the gallery.
Captured entirely on 35mm film, Begley’s work is a reflection on the contrasting elements seen in the extremes of nature. Majestic and spiritual, the sacred valleys and ranges are captured around an altitude of 4000m in the heartland of the Annapurna ranges and they depict a rapidly evolving landscape.
