Out of Context : Dan Newso



OUT OF CONTEXT

An exhibition by Dan Newso

Opens: Thursday 12 January 2017, 6-9pm
Exhibition Runs Until: Thursday 19 January 2017

at The Butcher Shop Northbridge



During his Butcher Shop residency, Newso has has been exploring a new direction both within the gallery and exterior large scale murals, combining abstract and figurative painting.

Employing cut and paste, implied collage and glitch aesthetic he takes his subjects out of context juxtaposing them with shapes and patterns. He examines themes of identity, protest, ambiguity and disguise through his figures.

Exploring non conventional materials, Newso has employed the use of raw building materials and concrete surfaces in his gallery works, which embody the qualities of exterior surfaces used as canvases for his murals. The artist presents his gallery works in handmade floating oak frames.

Dan Newso is visiting us from the UK, using his residency placement to develop his practice and build an international audience. This trip has been supported by Arts Council England and British Council.

Gradual : Bruno Booth







GRADUAL
An Exhibition by Bruno Booth


Opens: Thursday 29 September 2016, 6-9pm
Exhibition Runs Until: Thursday 13 October 2016

At The Butcher Shop Northbridge



Gradual explores the relationship between object and subject. One thing gradually becomes another. Our tastes, ideas, dislikes and even our bodies are in a constant state of flux, neither one thing or another yet encompassing every state in between. Even the paintings that make up this body of work will change, however minutely, over timegradually becoming something and everything else.

Gradual is a body of work created during Bruno Booth's Butcher Shop Residency, a free studio program supporting local and visiting artists.

Abando : Jarrad Martyn





ABANDO
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.
