THE RAINBOW VOLCANO EXPLOSION Group Exhibition
July 31st-August 30th, 2014
Reception: Thursday August 7th 2014, 7-9pm
Curated by artist and Co-director of Graven Feather Erin Candela, the exhibit brings together disparate artistic practices around the collective use of colour and energy.
From luminously glowing paintings by Julie Gladstone and Ursula McDonnell to a textured hooked-rug canvas by Hannah Epstein a wide range of material and style is evident. "While coming from very different perspectives, each of these artists demonstrate an energetic use of colour, material or gesture in their work. " says Candela. Against the white of the gallery walls the artworks pop and explode, immersing visitors in a riot of swirling shades and strokes. As the title suggests fun and play are also important themes in the collection; a reminder perhaps not to take the art world too seriously.
