Our Life, Our World @ Arts Project Australia

As part of CLIMARTE's ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 festival, Our Life, Our World explores environmental and social issues that we currently face in our local and global environments. The multidisciplinary group exhibition features Arts Project studio artists, threading expressive painting (such as the tragic foreknowledge of an impending tsunami soon to swamp an entire town), to statements drifting between ironic and hopeful (think ‘Global warming is finally over for ever and ever, yes everywhere’ by Chris Mason), as well as impending speculation about…

The World Around Us @ Arts Project Australia

As part of CLIMARTE's ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 festival, The world around us literally refers to a five-block radius around the Arts Project Australia studio. Each week as the seasons change and the weather alters, so changes the landscape and our perceptions of it. Through the process of walking the same paths over a year, Arts Project studio artists will present work that focuses on and truly examines the fluctuations of their local environment, articulating their interests and concerns. Curated by Penelope Hunt, the exhibition charts the…

FEM-aFFINITY @ Arts Project Australia

Curated by contemporary artist and academic Dr Catherine Bell, FEM-aFFINITY brings together female artists from Arts Project and wider Victoria whose work share an affinity of subject and process. By situating female Arts Project studio artists alongside other female contemporary artists, the exhibition seeks to uncover intersubjective perspectives, offering variations on female identity and ways to look at historical feminist tropes. Drawing upon interdisciplinary approaches, feminist methodologies and understanding artworks as a complex and nuanced way of thinking about embodied knowledge, the exhibition…

Listen to me people, I know what I’m talking about @ Arts Project Australia

It is only when language breaks down that we are forced to acknowledge its limitations as a communicative devise. This fact, far from stifling artists, often affords an opportunity to point beyond language boundaries to examine alternate modes of communicative potential. At Arts Project, the use of text as a pictorial device has often been used to express the difficulty and ambiguity apparent in different forms of communication: captioned images, automatic writing, abstracted text and pieces of poetry all regularly…

Warren O’Brien Solo @ Arts Project Australia

Warren O’Brien is a prolific painter whose abstract images echo the rhythm and repetition of his process. The layering of radiant colours creates the illusion of depth and texture in his work and his use of a repeated arc motif, seemingly based on forms found in arched windows, invites the viewer to explore the many complex layers within his works. This exhibition marks his first solo show. O’Brien (born 1974) has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia…
