Not many artists are brave enough to bare their vulnerability as openly as Guy James Whitworth.

His new exhibition “Enough Of Your Nonsense” promises both ‘daring visuals and inspiring social commentary’ as the artist studies the dramatic events of the past nine months.

In the art world, Guy James Whitworth is the rarest of creatures. He is an artist that those in the know, know (and love). He has won awards, books have been published, documentaries have been made about his work and his exhibitions are a sea of red dots. However, he still flies under the radar of most mainstream art watchers as he operates on the intersectionality of lots of art scenes.

Often dismissed as a ‘LGBTQ artist’ his new exhibition “Enough Of Your Nonsense” promises to be the show that changes his profile and draws him into the spotlight of the mainstream.  And while intersectionality is a bit of a buzz word at the moment, there is no more an appropriate word when referring to Whitworth, who has a unique and provocative view on modern Australian culture and current world events.

“I believe all of the events over the last nine months are connected,” says the artist, “from the catastrophic bushfires, a direct effect of climate warming and factory farming to the Black Lives Matter Movement, all oppression is linked and what we are seeing is a disconnect on the world around us. Whilst art cannot fix these problems alone, it can raise awareness of cognitive dissonance and coax us out of our denial and suggest new, positive ways of seeing and operating within the world around us.”

Please note there will be a maximum of 6 people allowed at any one time in the gallery.
