Opening their doors at 6pm, Friday the 3rd of July, Juddy Roller is proud to present you one of Australia’s most iconic street artists Ears. This is Ears’ first Melbourne solo show in over 4 years.
Tree Spirits is a culmination of work that Ears has produced during a month long residency at Juddy Roller, using the entire gallery space as his studio to produce a mix of large format and smaller mixed media paintings on canvas and wood panel.
Tree Spirits delivers of a series of imagined landscapes that reference mountainous Australian bush lands, accompanied by floating portraits warped by playful line work offset by sparse graphic elements.
In his latest body of work, Ears uses bold colours and geometric lines to create compositions born of a street context yet taken further into ideas of symmetry and form, utilising the tension between the man made world and the natural environment.
Ears is a multi-disciplinary artist working in sound, painting, video and photography. Ears’ work was born in the street and has matured into a successful fine art career, with many solo shows under his belt and multiple curatorial projects.
Juddy Roller, one of Melbourne’s most iconic street art studios is located in a unique warehouse space in one of Fitzroy, Melbourne’s most colourful lane ways.
Juddy Roller is owned and operated by Shaun Hossack and Matt Careri, the founders of Juddy Roller Studios and The Wall to Wall Festival, Benalla.
