The works are up and they are amazing.
We had a member of the public come in yesterday who said "coming here today and seeing this work makes me believe in fate."
Another said "this work is so grounded, it's given me goosebumps" as he showed me his arm.
I've put on 35 exhibitions and done dozens of live art events. This is the best show I've ever put on. It is a solo show for one great artist, whose work has impact and meaning that cross cultural and social boundaries to share his critique of our modern life.
You can see the works here.
These works matter.
Despite the rain, over 80 people came out. With an amazing team of volunteers, we provided food and substinance.
Together we've been able to do something magical. We've created a meaningful experience in art and philosophy in the consumerist space of a shopping centre while commenting on the ills of our consumerist habits.
We are sharing art and at the same time showing a better path for what our future as a people and species can be. I know this sounds ambitious but right now, what we need is ambitious.
This is my first time curating a solo show of someone else's work and by god I couldn't have asked for a better artist to work with. Andrew's work is powerful, skillful, subtle and unique. I am sitting here now in the studio admiring it.
But is also grounded and grounding.
Some people want art to elevate. I think we elevate by connecting to the ground.
His show is up from now till the 28th October 2021.
