Through The Lens With David Russell – April

It’s that time of month again to show you whats been happening on the streets of Melburn, as always there is something happening.

Below is a selection of some of my favourite shots from Ironlak’s 10th anniversary paint up in Croft Lane. The event saw some of the best Melbourne and overseas artists repaint the lane; Dvate, Sofles, Treas, Sirum, just to name a few .

We also saw Trunk Diner put on an amazing Sunday event with live painting over two months, featuring Conrad Bizjak, Deams, Itch, Lucy Lucy, Jaws, Hancock and more.

Invurt also got down to Junky Project’s first solo show ‘WASTED’ at The Darkhorse Experiment in Blender Studios. Who doesn’t love Junky’s work from his usual suspects the sentinels you see everywhere, as well as some amazing sculptures made from everyday found objects.

There is also some amazing pieces from Senekt in Abbotsford, Dem 189 in Clifton Hill and an amazing collab between Rashe & Bailer in Brunswick; and finally Emily Vanderlism and the Authority Clothing crew fronted by Christopher Skyner, created a great piece down Bennets lane in the CBD.

Snapshots – Comic-Con – Perth 2014

Apologies for the lateness of this post, being kept busy with all the FORM festival activities.

So, a week or so ago, I checked out the Comic Con convention in Perth. Man, it did not disappoint. Such an awesome day of art and art fans; Comic Con always has such a great community vibe to it. A lot of people put in a huge effort with their costumes, providing an interesting snapshot of not only the fan base, but of the creativity involved in putting their look together. It’s great to check out the artists who are in attendance and put some faces to names. All in all it’s always a real treat to attend such a well put together convention.

Exhibition & Preview – Sam Octigan – What You Cant Forget – Melbourne

Strangely enough, it was only at last years 615 Studios group show that I had my first chance to really check out some of Sam Octigans work in person – and what I saw left me wishing I had a pile of his work up on my walls.

Grandly enough, Sam has a show opening this week at the Just Another Project Space in Prahran, and it looks to be a real beauty of a show.

"Just Another Project Space is proud to present What You Can’t Forget, an exhibition of painted works on canvas by Melbourne artist Sam Octigan. Following up his debut 2012 solo show ‘Of Two Minds’, the exhibition will feature larger works on canvas as well as a site-specific mural installation.

In this body of work, Octigan examines the idea of history repeating itself, the ways in which we subconsciously cling to certain moments in our lives and how these experiences underwrite the way we see things like certainty, truth, justice, faith and love. Even after having acknowledged the fallibility of these experiences. We feel ourselves acting out based on impressions we take on as children, only half aware as adults, of how these experiences are hard-written into our consciousness.

We grasp at them, as if attempting to solve a riddle, as they fall in and out of the ether. Life remains cyclical. Doors are opened and closed, wires connect and disconnect, memories surface and disappear.

These themes are represented in each work visually, through Octigan’s use of composition, line, color and contrast. Featuring detailed realistic renderings framed with dynamic abstractions and an emphasis placed on composition, the paintings read almost as visual riddles, compelling the viewer to engage, and connect their own dots. What You Can’t Forget show’s Octigan’s growth and current focus as an artist, with both the works visual and conceptual increasing complexity.

Exhibition – The Yok & Sheryo – Nasty Goreng – Perth

Nasty Goreng debuts on Friday the 21st of March.  This will be Perth’s first look at the duo’s work since their kismet pairing some years ago. The teaming of these two talented artists is quite unique, both artists’ contribution can be seen in their work, neither voice is lost –  instead the pairing is cohesive and flawless. Yok and Sheryo’s work has grown more intricate, crazy, and loose all at the same time.
If you only see one exhibition this year, make it this one!
