Blender studios is a constantly evolving melange of talent and ambition, one of the cornerstone hubs of art in the Melbourne CBD and an icon unto itself. In my many visits there (countless, really), I’ve been privileged to meet artists from all walks, styles and creativity. From new artists, to those who are established, there’s no doubt that it is a veritable wellspring of amazing art.
Antonia Trash is one of the artists who I’ve been lucky to meet in my visits to the Blender, and someone whose work I’ve been scrumptiously checking out, and hoping to see in a gallery setting – now, she has her first solo show, and I’m excited to see what she’s come up with.
“The first solo show by Trash,
Painting spiders to cover the gaps.
Tales of dark places high, and joy gone awry,
Trashed youth is absconding the trap.
Often deep, sometimes dark, but always hopeful, trashed youth is an abstract representation of transitional events in the life and art of TRASH. Realization and acceptance, this is an unseen fine art practice that is ready to be unveiled.”
Definitely a great show to see. We’re big fans of first solo shows, and we’ll be heading there to check out Trashs work on the night – seeya there!
