Be sure not to miss out on this show this Thursday.
Please join us at Metro Gallery on Thursday 13 November 6:30 – 8:30 pm for the opening of Michael Peck’s solo exhibition, ‘Sanctuary’.
The show is a meditative return to the quiet contemplation of nature that underpins Peck’s artwork. As in Peck’s previous series the subjects are caught in frozen moments, catching the stillness between the frantic beatings of bird’s wings or the quiet solitude of a lone figure contemplating the landscape.
The show brings to a close the artist’s most successful year to date. In the past twelve months Peck has received widespread recognition for his work. Peck was a finalist in the Tattersall Prize in late 2013 and this year was a finalist in the Art Gallery of New South Wales Sulman Prize with his iconic work, The Archer and also a finalist in the prestigious John Leslie Art Prize. Peck is excited to have also been chosen for inclusion in the National Portrait Gallery’s 2014 exhibition In The Flesh and the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre’s 2015 exhibition Guarding the Home Front.

Here we are again with another 30 days of wicked walls behind us, I reckon out of the 1500 photos I take each month, I get about 5% That I really like, here are some of my favourite images.
This month features shows by Twoone and Rone, some great collaboration’s by Kaffein & Lucy Lucy and Bailer & Heesco, along with some mad solo’s by Dvate , Dem 189, and Anthony Lister.
Some of my favourite images are those of buildings warped by my 16 – 35 mm wide angle lens with a mad blue sky and defined clouds, I love contrast and well framed shots I’m pretty OCD, if you haven’t noticed.
Be sure to get down to Off The Kerb, this friday to check the wonderful work of Barek, who’s pasteups have been gracing the streets of Melbourne for a few years now.
A wonderful mix of animals, trolls and the ever adventurous Barek, these pieces always seem to breathe life in to the urban landscape in the most wonderful way.

For those that missed out on last nights show “Outsiders” featuring Twoone, returning from berlin for this show, I was pretty impressed with what I saw it was a combination of his usual character stylings painted on these amazing light boxes.
Being painted on the glass or perspex you could see all the brush strokes through the light shining from behind, the first room had this industrial noise playing which was quite confronting but really set the mood.
The show will be running till October the 19th at Backwoods Gallery in Easey Street Collingwood.
Be sure to get along to my good mate, Sticky Fingers apparel Launch party in a couple of weeks, he has a rad clothing range with some of the coolest characters.
