Rohan Wealleans: In space no one can hear you collect rocks

Curated by Serena Bentley

New Zealand artist Rohan Wealleans creates paintings and sculptures comprised of multitudinous layers of house paint that are then incised to reveal the multi-coloured excavations beneath. The resulting paint chips generated by this process often become art objects in their own right.

For Mailbox, they are presented as specimen-like curiosities, and as body adornments in photographs featuring Wealleans-styled naked alien babes. Part ‘geologist’, part voyeur, Wealleans always inhabits multiple guises.
