Acquired by ACU Melbourne Gallery

Chuffed to be acquired by ACU Melbourne Gallery as part of their modern collection. It’ll be nice to be hung amongst such accomplished artists.

She’s still in production but it struck me how she is face masked and sealed in her isolation acid green acrylic box.

Linden Postcard Show 2019

Making my own acrylic box frames for Linden postcard show. Cutting and gluing acrylic is an absolute bastardy challenge of precision and timing …and a snowstorm of acrylic dust.

This piece is Circuit Queen Rød

Conventicle, 2019

Exhibition Opens Saturday 25 May 2019, 2pm – 4pm

Exhibition Runs Tuesday 21 May – Saturday 1 June

Tues to Fri: 11am – 5pm, Sat: 11am – 3pm

After the success of his Bone Idol exhibition on the walls of fortyfivedownstairs in 2015, Chris Orr returns with a new show.

Conventicle is an unorthodox assemblage of Renaissance and Georgian engravings blanketed in everyday detritus, modern ephemera and classical stencils.

A diet of ever-changing colour, with velvet hues, flourescent outbursts and unexpected complexions.

Old soft drink cans, disregarded packaging and discarded motherboards are expertly re-assembled in an exciting declamatory recitation of social archaeology.
