Rumour, Gossip and Innuendo

BY Libby Oldham | 29-Aug-2012

Eris Fleming is a well known and much loved artist with his own particular style of humour. When one realizes that he is of Irish/French stock, we can understand where his perverse style comes from. His love of colour and ability to blend them with panache obviously comes from his French side, but the fun and laughter that his paintings evoke come from the Irish. This upcoming exhibition will prove to be yet another delightful event and will both inform and provoke you with Eris’ stylish sense of humour and bright joyful paintings.

PSYCH-O-TROPICA at Mars Gallery

BY Andy Dinan - Mars Gallery | 29-Aug-2012

Psycho-o-tropica: Tales of the Deep North showcases the work of 20 emergent and established artists who have called Cairns home. Despite the tyranny of distance from major capitals the artists are sustaining practices that have a symbiotic relationship with big cities and remote regions alike. This exhibition presents works with pop, urban, contemporary, subversive and subcultural edges untempered by capital city influences, demonstrating a diverse range of mediums and perspectives. Each artist brings to their work something inherently Far Northern Queensland proving that Cairns isn’t so much a destination, it’s a point of departure.

Samuel Tupou / Pan-o-mania - 2012 at Mars Gallery

BY Andy Dinan - Mars Gallery | 29-Aug-2012

Pan-O-Mania presents a pastiche of historic events, trends and cultural shifts. These new works take inspiration from the post-war era of the 50’s through to the early 70’s with particular focus on the ‘Tiki phenomenon’; a blind appropriation of Pacific culture for cashed up westerners. This cultural homage is something that I am fascinated with having my own cultural roots embedded in Polynesia.
