Gaffa Gallery: July 12-23, 2012
Creation/Destruction at Gaffa Gallery claims to bring together artists from differing backgrounds, who are brought together by the 'destruction of their home planet'. They are 'joining forces' to present their interpretation of the relationship between creation and destruction.
Phillip Myclecharane's work presents a disjointed portrait. I overheard one person describe it as 'venetian blinds' and it does bare some resemblance. There is a sense that you are standing on the outside looking in. These images are not calm or peaceful but edgy and unsettling.
The work of Clare O'Brien is delicate and beautiful. Her use of colour is precise and does not detract from the detail of the intricate ink work. With work that references Australian bush land and native flora I feel her work lends itself more to the creation side of this exhibition.
