Opening: 12th Feb 6-9pm
Exhibition Continues: 13th- 6th March
Stala Contemporary: 12 Clever Street, West Perth

We are super excited to see past artist in residence at The Butcher Shop Jarrad Martyn's new exhibition!

“It’s Not Down in Any Map; True Places Never Are” is a series of paintings and drawings by Jarrad Martyn which explore humanity’s relationship with the natural environment.

The process of bricolage, (something constructed from a diverse range of things) is used to collate academic research and the associated imagery to create an alternate conversation. The contrastingmotifs are used to explore the relationship between industry and the environment, species hierarchy, as well as the conservation function of zoos. Conversely, some works also tell a universal story that aims to unite humanity, while alsosuggesting what (if anything) the act of painting can offer to environmental conversation.

This body of work was largely made during a residency at Art on the Move, and is supported by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC).

Love dogs? Love Art? Of course we do.

And when art curator Kaye Guthrie Adonis and her orchestra of artists join forces with one of the most respected dog photographers on the planet, Alex Cearns OAM on June 7, expect the canine unexpected.

Alex has built a career asking mans’s best friend to say cheese! She has brought to life 10 of her favourite pooch pics, each one currently residing on a 1m x 1m canvas. Canvas meets 10 of Perth’s most high profile artists and this is where the magic happens. Artists will paint live on the night and ‘photo bombs’ the canvas. The result - 10 unique collaborations each one celebrating artistic style and pooch passion.

Creatives Collide Artists: Paul Deej, Robert Jenkins, Smij Smyth, Dipesh 'peche' Prasad, Hans Bruechle, Harvey Jackson, DMERC, James Giddy, Liam Dee, Nick Zafir
