SPACE 1 : The little big
Skylar Ru Silva

‘The Little Big’ features my early, raw, work from 2017 – 2018.

Texture, movement and friction create an intimate and playful exploration of the relationship between beauty and self reflection, all inspired by the ambient music of Harold Budd & Fennesz melded with black metal and techno which I listened to while creating these pieces.

This exhibition is the launch of my debut visual concept album, The Little Big. In addition to being able to purchase the original artworks on display, a digital release of printable copies will be available for purchase via USB. Raising questions about permanence and ownership of visual art. Eg. Does increased accessibility to a small reproduction devalue the original?

It marks the beginning of an ongoing exploration into the elements of process, performance and exhibition.

SPACE 2 : The value of identity
Avan Anwar

War is destruction and leads to displacement of people. Displacment significantly impacts on identity and its deterioration. Only memory rescues identity and connects past with the present and the future. For displaced people identity has a value which connects them with their roots.

SPACE 3 : People I Sought of met
Tim Coleman

I predominately paint with oils and acrylics to try to capture the essence of a brief moment or idea through multiple perspectives both visually and emotionally. Two people could walk down the same road and have completely different experiences; my aim is to create artworks that visually construct fleeting memories that people can read and somehow identify empathetically with some aspect of the image and use this as a starting point to explore what’s happening within the image. I use references from found photos that have been lost or discarded, self-taken photos as well as images formed from my personal experiences. With this series I explore portraits of people I sought of met at a job one day. There were so many new faces and stories that they started to meld together so I decided to paint them based on my distorted memory of who they were. I don’t know them, they are people I sought of met, much like many of the people you have sought of met. The works are painted in acrylic and oil on offcuts of ply
from varies building jobs.
