Mitch Cairns: The Reader’s Voice

Somewhere between cartoons, writing, and concrete poetry, these collages by Mitch Cairns are inspired by all these forms, and by music. As with his painting, he imposes limits that paradoxically allow freer expression; for example using French, a language he doesn’t speak, or letters to make images.

Art Exhibition previously on at Heide Museum of Modern Art in Victoria, Australia.
From Saturday 24 October 2015 to Sunday 21 February 2016

Cairns plays with thoughts, ideas and memories with great economy and wit, using the now-defunct Letraset, and Zazzle stickers of images from a personal archive.
