Out of Town
Northern Rivers Community Gallery – Cherry St, Ballina
30 September – 25 October:
Mystic Misfits – Leo Coyte
Leo Coyte’s Mystic Misfits is a series of new paintings that construct an absurd open-ended narrative, giving rise to a collection of protagonists derived from a subconscious assemblage of fictions, memories and teenaged anxieties. In these works the push-and-pull of Coyte’s playful process draws on the painterly potential of formal incongruity, merging realistic renderings of semi-figurative objects and bodies with bursts of colour and abstraction. He imparts a sense of celebratory irreverence through his art making process by mining and refashioning bits and pieces of the various painting traditions that interest him.
Strange Little Attractors – Susie Marcroft
Strange Little Attractors explores how quantum consciousness might be engaged as a creative strategy in eliciting empathetic responses to the artists’ sculptural ‘merges’ of human and non-human animals.
“A moment of ‘conception’ arose during making when my forms began to ‘speak’ to me, evoking an empathetic uneasiness that led to the collapse of the perceived boundary between myself and these inanimate others.”
Animal Logic – SCU Curatorial Lab | Richard Atkinson | Kate Stead | Simon Turnbull
This exhibition centres on animism, which describes a belief that non-human phenomena – such as animals, plants, and objects – are endowed with spiritual essences and agency.
The exhibition was conceived and developed in cooperation with third-year and honours students at Southern Cross University (SCU), Lismore, as part of the SCU Curatorial Lab, which educates students in contemporary curatorial methodologies. SCU visual art students Richard Atkinson, Kate Stead and Simon Turnbull are currently enrolled in the Visual Arts (Honours) degree, and have made work specifically for the exhibition. Atkinson’s work explores the subcultural phenomenon of Bronies – fans of the My Little Pony cartoon who find deep philosophical messages from particular characters and episodes. Kate Stead is showing a series of works created during a residency in Assisi, Italy, in 2014, depicting native Australian wildlife accompanied by imagined portraits of Saint Francis of Assisi: the patron saint of animals. Simon Turnbull’s work operates between fine art and illustration, examining the long history of drawing practice in which animals have been used to satirise and reveal the darker sides of human nature.
