Gradual

Posted On: 19th of September, 2016
Posted In: Store News

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 time gradually 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.

Residency Announced - NEWSO (UK)

Posted On: 11th of September, 2016
Posted In: Store News

We are super please to announce our fifth artist in resident is now confirmed. NEWSO will be joining us from the UK this November to spend summer in The Butcher Shop studios.

British artist Dan Newso has a mixed background of fine art and graffiti; in the last 8 years he has been engaging his local community in Birmingham's post-industrial creative quarter Digbeth painting large murals in public spaces. In this time he has also exhibited his work in Europe, America and Brazil and painted commissioned murals for a variety of international clients.

In his acrylic pieces combining figurative with abstract content, he often paints glitch and collage effects and makes use of negative space to show a history of the surface,incorporating existing features when painting bare walls or sheets of concrete board.

Newso's visit to us from the UK is supported by Arts Council England. This residency is part of an international development project to widen his audience and develop his practice, he hopes to collaborate with other artists and learn more about working and painting in WA.

Gesture is the name of this intersection between life and art, act and power, general and particular, text and execution. It is a moment of life subtracted from the context of individual biography as well as the moment of art subtracted from the neutrality of aesthetics: it is pure praxis.
