An Exhibition by Jarrad Martyn
Opens: Friday 10th June 2016, from 6pm to late
Exhibition Runs Until: Monday 20th June 2016
At The Butcher Shop Northbridge
Abando, a solo exhibition of paintings and drawings by Jarrad Martyn, explores the allure of abandoned sites and buildings. Encountered through a curiosity in exploring and an interest in painting walls, Martyn examines the human interaction in these sites after they have become abandoned. Often explored while travelling, Abando features a range of different sites, from a abandoned theme park in Berlin to a abandoned entertainment complex in Bali.
Through the scrapping and blurring of paint he encourages associations to the physicality which often characterises the human interaction occurring in these sites, while reinforcing the changing landscape that is created by the manmade being reclaimed by nature. He questions how someone's behaviour can change when not being dictated by an overarching set of constraints or rules.
The exhibition is the result of the work created during the artist residency at The Butcher Shop. For the past two months Martyn has been occupying The Butcher Shop studio. We are pleased to present the second body of work created during our new residency program.
