Exhibition : Out of Context

OUT OF CONTEXT
An exhibition by Dan Newso

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

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.

Abando - Jarrad Martyn

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.

Out Front - Featuring Cheeks

Posted On: 7th of September, 2014
Posted In: Instore Events

Visit our East Vic Park store this Thursday night for a special instore event - OUT FRONT.

Four local artists have taken over The Butcher Shop during Ignite the Park - each week adding to a collaborative artwork that is taking over the store front.

Visit us this Thursday 4 September as Cheeks joins us for live painting at the store from 6:30 - 8:30 pm - completing the 4 week artwork.

Cheeks is a Perth based illustrator whose pencil pushing motives are kept alive daily through her obsession of oriental cultures, her love of food and the bad influence of rap music. Her artwork is inspired by weird moments, her friends, samurais and ratbags of every ratbag culture ever. Utilising pencils and the occasional paint brush or tablet, Cheeks enjoys illustrating characters that react to the world with a bit of fight and a lot of attitude.
