BRIGHT SIGNS - OPENING THURSDAY 20 OCTOBER 2011, 6-9PM
At No Vacancy, which is part of QV. Easiest way to access is to enter Jane Bell Lane from Russell Street (between Lonsdale and Little Lonsdale).
New paintings by Gemma Jones (plus prints and other fun stuff). This is her fifth solo exhibition, and her first in Melbourne in many years.
And girls, of course.
Banners, bunting, pennants, flags are waved as little souvenirs of everyday life. Celebrations and non-celebrations of some inner voices, boring cliches and heartfelt moments. A sideways move for Gemma into works which flirt with semiotics and design in a new, bold way. Still exploring themes of pop art, femininity, feminism and the commodification of our personal lives.
Tattoo Parlour is a new book being published by Outré Gallery Press.
Enter the Parlour and meet Angelique Houtkamp, Alex Binnie, Chris Conn Askew, Dr Lakra, Mike Giant, Thomas Hooper, Scott Campbell and Shawn Barber. All photographed in their work spaces for an intimate glimpse at the details of their everyday life.
