If you’re looking to take a trip through memories, personal experiences and the subconscious, then head to Somedays for Forgot to Remember. Jessica Porter, Fil Molitor and Kate Beckingham, are three Sydney creatives encouraging you to explore your surroundings, past, and present. Opening reception Wednesday 21st November 6:00pm - 8:00pm. Somedays Gallery 72B Fitzroy Street Surry Hills.

Illustrator, Jessica Porter is driven by a desire to understand human behaviour. She is stirred by the force within us to assume that what we know is right and best. Jessica is preoccupied with finding the truth and meaning underlying things and she weaves this into her work. Through use of symbolism, abstraction, and illusions, her work often hides a secret tale.

The work of Filip Molitor is influenced by the dark surrealism of HR Giger as much as the comic look art of Robert Crumb and children’s illustrations of Dr Seuss. With its use of macabre tongue-in-cheek humour, Molitor’s art is perceived as disturbing by some and comical by others. Immigrating to Australia from his birthplace of Slovakia at the age of 10, Molitor often draws inspiration from the culture clash and discrimination he experienced during the first few years in his new country. The hard edged black and white graphic drawing style conveys a sense of alienation.

Both naive and simple, Kate Beckingham’s photographic work explores the themes of memory, loss and environment. The places are desolate and forgotten and by exploring them alone, only with her camera for company, Beckingham transfers her emotional, internal struggles on to the physical environment that is battling against itself to stay alive. She is interested in how humankind interacts with the constantly changing environment that surrounds it.
