BETA BLOCKER by Miik Green (pop up)

Tuesday December 6 – Thursday December 8, 2016 Showcase Gallery, North Metropolitan TAFE [caption id="attachment_3510" align="alignnone" width="500"] Miik Green and Chad Peacock, Shifting states: mikros kosmos, 2014. Image courtesy the artist.[/caption]   Immerse yourself in a paradoxical experience and embrace the lustrous surfaces and colours of Miik Green’s BETA BLOCKER pop-up exhibition presented at TAFE by ‘ART ON THE MOVE. This exhibition showcases Miik Green’s Xylem series, large-scale paintings on aluminium panels combining unlike material, sealed within layers of resin. The term beta blocker references a class of drugs that combat various heart conditions, and links the ideas of tension and disequilibrium in arts practice with the biological. Miik Green’s artworks draw from cell-staining techniques and biological pigmentation, where colour can define abnormalities or infection. In the bio-sciences, colour is often strikingly evident and can be used to identify, map, trace and visualise cells and cell components under a microscope. In a similar manner, Green injects, drags and extracts liquid materials, pigments and chemicals, yet allows the paintings to evolve independently of his hand. ‘ART ON THE MOVE acknowledges our event sponsor Millennium Removals. www.artonthemove.com.au |  artmoves@artonthemove.com.au Miik Green and Chad Peacock, Shifting states: mikros kosmos, 2014.

BLEND 43 by James Cooper – shopfront

Cooper explores heta-uma (bad-good) within contemporary drawing and painting, looking towards anti style and fringe graffiti and the recurring themes of appropriation throughout these subcultures. Resisting skill and seriousness, disparate references are channelled through a naïve aesthetic; creating amalgamations of collected imagery and popular culture.  22 Sept- 1 Oct   [caption id="attachment_3445" align="alignnone" width="500"] R.I.P IN PEACE (Don't Tread on Me, Kilroy) House paint & enamel on canvas 170 x 220 cm[/caption]    ...
