the-hours-shida-innermyths-flyer

The exhibition is a dynamic record of Shida’s development as an artist who envisions infinite worlds. Considering an array of approaches, through Inner Myths, he synthesises styles as diverse as Science Fiction Art, French Post-Impressionism and Russian Symbolist Art in his depiction of ethereal realities. Influenced by the work of Frank Frazetta, Paul Gauguin, Mikhail Vrubel and Nikolai Kalmakov, for Inner Myths, as Australia’s most prolific young street artist, Shida reinvokes two centuries of art history in his characteristic style.

Inner Myths presents a refined body of works, demonstrating that Shida is an asset to Australian contemporary art, who is constantly challenging himself against the sources of his inspiration.

WED 11.6.14 ‘FUTURE PRIMITIVE’ Tiera Boo

Screenshot-2014-06-02-09.36.49

‘Future Primitive’ is a new exhibition by Tiera Boo integrating a complex use of layering techniques and detailed stencilling to become more illustrative in nature. The contrast of raw wood, the highly polished spray painted stencils and slick oil painting merge in a beautiful discordant harmony. The exhibition is made up of two intertwined stories: ‘Aspects’, detailed stencils on paper and ‘Future’, paintings and stencils on handmade wooden frames. This exhibition was created to a soundtrack of crashing surf guitar and Jangly 60s Garage Rock and should be enjoyed the same way by viewers.

‘Future’ is informed by theories of the sublime landscape and their potency in the age of climate change. An eerie, impossible landscape stands punctured as humanity comes riding towards oblivion on their ridiculous stead, naive of an uncertain future. Conversely ‘Aspects’ delve into facets of the feminine and the creation of identity. The way we see ourselves versus the way we are perceived by others is an important dichotomy. It effectively creates a paradox wherein two or more equally real psyches can be attributed to the same person. Destroying the aura of the ‘true self’ identity is reduced to mere performance.

Boo’s own obsessive nature is mirrored in these exquisitely crafted creations. Surpassing the common perception of what we know as stencil art, these works couldn’t be further from the street they crawled out of. As these stories intertwine, the nature of the internal sublime landscape becomes the foundation upon which to explore the boundaries of how gender and self preservation can be redefined.

WED 4.6.14 ‘STOCKROOM’ Curated by The Hours

We are proud to announce ‘Stockroom’. A group show featuring some of Australia’s finest young artists

Over the years, The Hours (Beastman, Marty Routledge & Numskull) have produced a number of widely acclaimed art events & exhibitions around Australia and have worked with some of the most recognised young artists in a variety of different genres.

To celebrate these ties, The Hours presents ‘Stockroom’. A large group show featuring a host of artists that have either worked with us before, are working with us now, or are someone we’d like to work with in the future. A mix of connections between the artist and us, as purveyors of modern art, we believe this to be a perfect insight into “if we were to own a stockroom, this is who it would be filled with”.

VANS THE OMEGA

Roughly based in Adelaide Australia, Vans the Omega has been creating and painting letterforms for over two decades, which has seen him travel around the globe consistently since 2000. Recognised in the global graffiti scene for his attention to detail and search for perfection within letter structure and technique, most of his influences come from ancient scripts, architecture, engineering, nature and the idea of movement or balance. His use of sharp highly technical machine like shapes and seemingly impossible patterns mixed with a traditional graffiti aesthetic, blend together to produce new innovative artworks which continue to push boundaries and perfect his craft. Vans The Omega is extremely well travelled and has exhibited artwork and painted murals all over the world.
