Snapshots – Abyss 607 – Guardians Of The Threshold – Off The Kerb Gallery

For those of you who live Northside will be familiar with Abyss 607 and his work, with his unmistakable style adorning Melbourne’s walls, doors , footpaths and even trackside, his work is everywhere. If I can use one word to sum up his show it would be “WOW”, I was super impressed and surprised to say the least, well done Abyss 607, the exhibition space had a serious case of the measles, virtually every piece had a red sold sticker on it. For those of you who could not make it, here are a bunch of pics I took.

Exhibition – Mangam Linea, Sirens and Heroes – Katie Young and Zsandor Burai – Dome Gallery – Melbourne

Katie Young and Zsandor Burai have a show coming up at Dome Gallery. This is my first glimpse of their work and I’m liking their style a lot. The preview shots look great, this looks like a great show. The show opens this Thursday the 14th of March from 6-8pm.

From the press release “In March this year, Dome Gallery will show the recent works of Melbourne artists Katie Young and Zsandor Burai. The exhibition will include recent paintings by the pair exploring mostly the female form infused with symbology and nature inspired imagery.

Mangam Linea explores the coexistence between pleasure and pain, intimacy and loneliness, self and God, light and dark, good and evil, life and death. The masculine meets the feminine to infuse all of the elements, exposing the fine line and creating a beautiful agony.

“I paint, I draw, I write, and I photograph the world around me. I am inspired by the beautiful, the ugly, the evanescent. I am forever striving to emulate the wonder and fragility which the subject emits. Exploring the intangible and indescribable, to try and pin down the mystery of nature and of oneself…always slightly out of reach.”

Katie Young was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1985. She works predominantly in oils and watercolour. Her work is almost always a collection of portraiture or figurative work exploring the notion of sexuality, identity, and spirituality.

Zsandor’s paintings explore the relationship of self and identity between the existential and the spiritual realms. Investigating their relevance by means of variable echoes, defining the line between reality and the dreamworld, and the self being perceived through the eyes of others. His subjects often at first glance appear confident and alluring with his use of bold line, but on closer inspection these characters are vulnerable in intricate detail and keeping close guard of the fragility that lurks within.”
