Exhibition – Tree Spirits – Ears – Juddy Roller Studios

 

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.

Exhibition – A Study Of Camouflage – Backwoods Gallery

Backwoods Gallery proudly presents A Study of Camouflage – a new show within the A Study of… exhibition series.

This is the fourth exhibition in row in the long-term project consisting of annual shows that focus on different study subjects. After more than successful exhibitions A Study of Hands, A Study of Eyes andA Study of Hair, the new show is focusing on a completely different subject – camouflage.

A Study of Camouflage brings together some of the leading contemporary artists whose art, in some way, touches the subject of camouflage. In collaboration with DPM-Studio (Disruptive Pattern Material), our concept seeks to deconstruct the dominant perception of camouflage from its military driven narrative, and to bring back the camouflage patterns to its natural roots. Camouflage is usually linked with military uniforms and inherently with violence and rigorousness. However, camouflage patterns are much more than a simple military feature. Its different forms can be observed and understood as an artistic product, both in terms of aesthetics and conceptuality.

Aesthetically, camouflage can assume different shapes and forms, creating beautiful design and art products, while conceptually, it may be detached from its military connotation, and transformed to different purposes depending on the given context. Always depending on artistic approach towards it, camouflage has enormous potentials for being a perfect medium for countless interpretations of contemporary society. The use of camouflage in art may lead to more abstract forms, while on the other hand it can serve as the perfect material for figurative and conceptual approaches as well.

Each artist participating at A Study of Camouflage uses the concept of camouflage in different ways. The artists featured in the show are:Aaron de la Cruz, Acorn, Alexander Mitchell, Ashley Wood,Augustine Kofie, Beastman, Clemens Behr, Hardy Blechman,James Greenaway, Jaybo Monk, Jon Fox, Jun Inoue, Kano Hollamby, K-narf, Madsaki, Mark Bode, Mark Drew, Masaho Anotani, MoneyLess, Nelio, O-Two, Petro, Raphael Sliks, Remi Rough, ROA, Senekt, SheOne, Shida, Shohei Takasaki, Shun Kawakami, Slicer, Stabs, Stephen Ives, TwoOne and Yusk Imai.

The exhibition will open on Friday, May 29th, and will be on view until Sunday, June 7th. It will take place at a warehouse space, just next door to Backwoods Gallery, at 5 Easey Street, Collingwood.

Snapshots – Choqworld – Juddy Roller

last week saw the very talented French artist Choq with his solo show Choqworld at Juddy Roller, the show featuring his unique style which Melbourne has fallen in love with.

His way of painting everyday scenes he comes across in his travels always puts a smile on my face,  I was even lucky enough to purchase a piece myself, as were many others on the night with the show almost selling out.

In case you missed the show here are some photos I managed to take.

Exhibition – Never Ending – By Creature Creature – At No Vacancy Gallery

Next Friday be sure to get along to “Never Ending” an amazing show put together by Creature Creature, I helped launch these guys in Melbourne by curating their first solo show “Bruiser” at Chaotic Gallery over two years ago, its been a pleasure to work with and watch these guys on their journey with their unique style.

2015 is a big year for CreatureCreature as they prepare their next elaborate solo show at No Vacancy QV Gallery. Running from January 28 through to February 8, Never Ending is curated by Joshua Smith of Espionage Gallery and will officially launch on Friday January 30 at 6pm.

CreatureCreature is the artist duo Chanel Tang and Ambrose Rehorek who together play with concepts of duality, East meets West mentality, and the natural world. They first met at university studying fine art and commercial graphic design and as they ‘flirted their way through drawing’ formed an official union in 2011 under one name, CreatureCreature.

Since then, they have worked together creating murals in the south in the front office spaces of Revolver Creative, exhibiting at Chaotic Gallery in 2013, Just Another Agency and Rtist Gallery.

The new collection ‘Never Ending’ will showcase all their skills to date — a blend of illustration and design with strong historical Japanese references, mixed with a love of street art and contemporary symbols. It is heavily inspired by the feeling of movement and freedom in skate culture along with music produced by beat-makers who mix hip hop with a traditional Japanese atmospheric ideals. Chanel excitedly reveals “… Expect everything from drawings and paintings, to skate decks, vinyl toys, t-shirts and small installations.”

Who: Creature Creature

What: Never Ending

Where: No Vacancy Gallery 34-40 Jane Bell Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 3000
