Tom Gerrard – Town & Country

Tom Gerrard

Come see all the incredible work done by Tom during his residency in Queenstown. Refreshments provided by the awesome peeps at Bodriggy Brewing Co.

Transitioning from a bustling city to an isolated region of the world can really stir up feelings and emotions. There is a stark contrast between being surrounded by crowds of people and then being immersed in crowds of trees. The crowds of people are buzzing with energy and emotion and can make one feel uneasy. Whereas being surrounded by trees, plants and nature can have the opposite effect. The uneasy feeling is replaced with calm and connection.

This is what I experienced when arriving in Queenstown, Tasmania for the Q Bank art residency. Wrapping up a busy 2018 in Melbourne where the population is growing at a rapid rate, I was feeling suffocated. That feeling lifted almost immediately as I arrived in Tasmania. I took in the space, colours, landscape, houses and environment in Queenstown and it inspired me to create this body of work. The colours, subject matter composition and styling are all a result of my time in nature and daily walks around Queenstown.

There are two sides to this exhibition. One being the dense population of inner city Melbourne. The other being the spaciousness and wilderness of the west coast of Tasmania.

New Evolution – An Exhibition by Junky Projects

New Evolution Junky Projects

Vs. Gallery is excited to present ‘New Evolution’ – the latest exhibition by Melbourne artist ‘Junky Projects’ (Daniel Lynch).

Well known for his sculptural ‘junk sentinels’ posted on the streets of Melbourne and throughout Australia in their thousands, Daniel’s new exhibition sees him focus on the theme of ‘waste as art’.

Having spent many weekends and late nights scouring the city streets for unique discarded objects, he carefully reassembles them into amazing and whimsical sculptures and dioramas. His creative ‘recycling’ brings a new and unexpected form of life to an exhausted environment.

Whilst Daniel’s art is often noted for its elegant simplicity, in this new body of work he introduces a new complexity to a number of his sculptures. Using found objects such as cutlery, hubcaps, broken toys, doorknobs and kitchen utensils, his assemblages take on striking and poetic characters – each with a life of their own.

‘The New Evolution’ portrays an imagined dystopian future where the only existing life forms are composed of junk, refuse and the detritus of a decaying world. It is a prophetic statement for the future of life on our planet and a hope that existence must continue in some form or another.

Back and Forward – An exhibition by Unwell Bunny

Unwell Bunny

OPENING FRIDAY FEB 8th – 6-9pm
Unwell Bunny / Ed Bechervaise presents a retrospective back catalog of older and recent work in ‘back and forward’ showing a progression from street to gallery setting over a number of years.

Emerging from the Adelaide 90’s graffiti, Ed has chipped away making a name for himself in the urban contemporary art scene in Melbourne and further abroad showing work in Amsterdam, New York and Paris.

Ed studied studio arts in Adelaide and graphic and conceptual study in Melbourne. Over the years of practice his work has moved into a figurative and abstract sensibility, observing and deconstructing still life, figurative and facial portraiture, landscapes, and subconscious memory. Through bold striking and juxtaposing colour, Ed captures his observations with emotive feeling, creating compositions that generate a sense of nostalgia, and fluid memory.

In this body of work Ed hopes to recreate these memories through installation, and spacial curation. Showing works from multiple themed shows over the years, that link together to become one longer broader narrative. Ed demonstrates influence, observation, and change through time. A collection of experiences that are a summery of seeing the world through fragments of passion about place, person, environment, and feeling.

The exhibition runs from Tuesday 15th – Sunday 20th January 2019, for all enquiries please contact the Gallery Manager Ariana – info@bsidegallery.com

Caper

Caper has been an active street artist for over 12 years, creating illustrations and paintings that parody mass media and popular culture. His use of multi-layered imagery in his works at times appear idiosyncratic and quirky, whilst acting as typical by-products of American superabundance and marketing.
Caper’s works are saturated with mental inertia, cliches and bad jokes, and by their nature question the coerciveness of the superficial.

Evil Keanevil

Evil Keanevil’s work is a dynamic and bold exploration of entropy and deconstruction of reality. Pop culture icons, as well as original characters are deconstructed to reveal their core components, usually by liquefying or melting the subject.
Questions and themes have risen through the meltingly matter, bubbling through the muck and surfacing in the paintings themselves – which components can be stripped away, and by what measure before the subject becomes unrecognisable? When the subject is melted down, is it their perception of reality being manipulated, or the viewer’s?
