Gallery 1: Paradise Lost by Megan Turton (Extended) 'Growing up, my Grandfather read to me from “Paradise Lost.” The illustrations of Gustave Dore and the lilting sound of my Grandfather’s voice was the moment I realized the power of art. Written in 1666 the only English epic, is an allegorical work following antihero Satan on his quest to destroy the newly created Earth. Using the characters of Satan, Adam, and Eve, Milton explores the way sin affects our lives and world and critiques the status quo. Stories and mythology have always served to help us understand and negotiate the world around us.'
Gallery 2: Borrowed Time by Keroshin Govender (Extended) 'Sydney’s inner-city suburbs have always attracted artists, designers, filmmakers and other creatives who live and practice their craft in these vibrant districts. ‘Borrowed Time’ is a celebration of these individuals. They have directed plays, run design practices and attended or worked at local art institutes. While they come from different places (New Zealand, Japan, South Africa, Pakistan) their lives have been shaped by their time in these areas as they have lived through Sydney’s many metamorphoses.'
Gallery 3: The Dogs of Reason by E. Armanious, Gabriel Yakub, Lingxiao (Leon) Guan 'There exists within us all a place of lawlessness, a void in which we can explore the inarticulate, the indefinable, the forbidden. Within those places,as real as they are unreal, we are our own gods, the architects of our own creation. And from this terrain, we gather materials with which we plaster the cracks of our flawed reality. Compulsively, inexorably, elaborately, we detail our visions until they gild our lives. A Kintsugi repair, golden, idiosyncratic, with a scarred and damaged elegance.'
Gallery 4: Assorted Memories by Brenton Schwab '‘Assorted Memories’, represents Brenton Schwab’s current and continuing search for the abstract in our natural and urban communities. ...
Throughout his work diversity becomes the concept and is a direct link to the randomness and variety he loves in nature. For the viewer, these abstract works often raises questions of how and why. Schwab directs similar questions toward the unresolved environmental issues we face today.'
