Exhibition | Sometimes drawing can be dark and disturbed

Wrestlers, vampires, erotica, clowns and imaginary figures; these are the images that infiltrate Adrian Lazzaro’s thoughts and practice. Oscillating between chimera, desire and reality, Lazzaro works across drawing, painting, digital art and soft sculpture. By persistently pursuing darkness and disturbance in his work – both psychologically and physically – Lazzaro’s imagery carries sinister interpretations with a quirky humour and wry outlook. Sometimes drawing can be dark and disturbed is Lazzaro’s first solo show at Arts Project Australia. Lazzaro has exhibited…

Exhibition | Mayor of the Town: Chris O’Brien

In Mayor of the Town storyteller and multidisciplinary artist Chris O'Brien builds, writes and stitches his own borough, inspired by other people’s stories and houses. Weaving together a collection of three-dimensional narratives, O’Brien places himself and his friends into his own creations, relaying the antics and situations they experience together; spider outbreaks, exploding hot water systems and creaky weatherboard dwellings. Aiming to capture the influence of local suburbia and architecture, Mayor of the Town includes soft sculpture houses, ceramics and…

Exhibition | Tethered to the Site: The Archive of Memory

Memories, at the core of our conscious experience, shape who we are. They are a fundamentally defining feature of individuality. Artists often form complex relationships with the notion of memory, using objects and images that represent the site of the experience as visual language. While imagination allows the memory to flourish and develop, at its essence it remains a constant; tethered to the site. From autobiographical explorations to isolated moments in popular culture, the variations are linked by the meditative…

Exhibition | Pop!

Popular culture motifs are often embraced and celebrated by artists worldwide. Artists have a long history of looking to pop culture for inspiration as they draw on attitudes, ideas, images, and other phenomena presented in mainstream mass media. From Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein to Claus Oldenburg and Jean Dubuffet—popular culture themes, aesthetics and sensibilities inform what artists create and subsequently shape the way we reflect on our culture, mirroring our values and culture back to us. Similarly, pop culture…
