GENESIS - AN EXHIBITION OF NEW PAINTINGS BY BEASTMAN
The Hours and Element presents
An exhibition of new paintings by Beastman
'Genesis' is the latest instalment in the ongoing body of artwork by Sydney based artist Beastman (Bradley Eastman). This much anticipated exhibition features a series of new paintings on wood further progressing the artist's distinctive style and exploring concepts surrounding the origins of life. These vibrant, geometric and impressive paintings range in size from small to large, reflecting themes of generation and growth in the natural world, whilst communicating the futuristic and overwhelming idea of nature coming to life in a way could have never imagined. The deities featured in Beastman's ambitious new works are a representation of lifeforms in nature progressing beyond the boundaries of our imagination, when the cosmic forces of nature eventually reveal the irrelevance of humanity in the universe.
Opening Night - Wednesday 31 July 2013 6-9pm
Exhibition continues until Sunday 4 August - Open 12-5pm daily
