‘Adherence’, a solo exhibition by Dose

‘The most valuable lesson my father taught me was to know when to walk, and when to clench both fists.’

Proudly presenting his debut solo show ‘Adherence’, Melbourne-based artist Dose explores a culture, people, and the evident blurred lines which orbit his world.

Dose provides the viewer with an opportunity to experience his current environment in which remaining adherent becomes increasingly more paramount.

Comprising of four tangible series of works utilising mixed media approaches on a multitude of surfaces, ‘Adherence’ draws definitions between graffiti and art, required sub-cultural errands, anecdotal relationships, and an ode to a youthful memory.

Opening Friday 22nd June 6-9pm, BSIDE Gallery, proudly supported by Young HenrysIronlakUnion HeightsBoywolfDodgy Paper & Rush Photography

Exhibition open for viewing Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th of June

Having been based in Melbourne for the majority of his creative career, Dose has focused on providing technically sound and challenging works to the city’s surfaces, whilst developing suited studio based practices. The culmination of both disciplines have given rise to ‘Adherence’.

Walt Disney’s & Salvador Dali – Destino 2003

Salvador Dalí’s long lost collaboration with Walt Disney will take your breath away.

The film tells the story of Chronos, the personification of time and the inability to realize his desire to love for a mortal. The scenes blend a series of surreal paintings of Dali with dancing and metamorphosis. The target production began in 1945, 58 years before its completion and was a collaboration between Walt Disney and the Spanish surrealist painter, Salvador Dalí. Salvador Dali and Walt Disney Destiny was produced by Dali and John Hench for 8 months between 1945 and 1946. Dali, at the time, Hench described as a “ghostly figure” who knew better than Dali or the secrets of the Disney film. For some time, the project remained a secret. The work of painter Salvador Dali was to prepare a six-minute sequence combining animation with live dancers and special effects for a movie in the same format of “Fantasia.” Dali in the studio working on The Disney characters are fighting against time, the giant sundial that emerges from the great stone face of Jupiter and that determines the fate of all human novels. Dalí and Hench were creating a new animation technique, the cinematic equivalent of “paranoid critique” of Dali. Method inspired by the work of Freud on the subconscious and the inclusion of hidden and double images.
Dalí said: “Entertainment highlights the art, its possibilities are endless.” The plot of the film was described by. Dalí as “A magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time.”
Walt Disney said it was “A simple story about a young girl in search of true love.”

Matt Macduff – Loop Of Doom | The Rise MTB

After over 3 year of research, determination and hard work, Matt Macduff managed to find everything he needed to make his project happen.

On saturday March 19th, Matt sustained a terrible fall attempting to make his way around the Loop Of Doom.

Built in a month at the Garden Route Trail Park in South Africa, the gigantic structure rises up to 40 ft. in the sky. The crash left him with 10 fractures in his right wrist and 3 fractures in his right ankle. The story behind his stunt is as impactful as the structure itself. A real story of determination. After spending a week in a South African hospital, Matt is now home in Ontario, working on his rehabilitation. Just as he started to walk again, we catched up with him to get his version of this incredible story.
