Almost Solo 18
January 28 @ 5:00 pm - February 10 @ 5:00 pm
Join us for Almost Solo, set to run 28 January – 10 February at in.cube8r Fitzroy.
Not quite a group show, not quite a solo show, Almost Solo brings individual artists together to exhibit their bodies of work in a shared space.
Exhibition Runs: 28 January – 10 February 2021
Coraline Caroline is an illustrator based in Melbourne. She creates dream-like illustration portraits of witches, alchemy, celestial lovers and moody ladies. She adds a bit of magic to her illustrations using dream-like colours, metallics and constellations.
Through the application of long (and super-long) exposure techniques Izzy attempts to reveal the ephemeral beauty that is often hidden beneath a turbulent, and frequently violent, environment. Utilising time, scale and texture he records the meeting point of earth, water and human construct, capturing the essence of the scene without distortion or distraction.
All things disappear in time, and so, we can assume that there is no real permanence, except, ironically, the search for permanence itself. This is what motivates Izzy’s practice, what pushes him to create a record of the struggle of loss, survival and revelation for others to contemplate.
Taking Paul Klee’s (1926) ‘Garden for Orpheus’ as his point of departure, Beast has expanded a broad vocabulary of line work which come to reference the gridded layout of Melbourne’s streets and alleys along with architectural abstractions. Each can is recorded for its location of use and, where applicable, the artist they were sourced from in a consideration of the history of the graffiti and the people that contribute to it. By early 2021 the project has expanded to include collaborations with Baxter (UK), Dan Wall (QLD), Sark, Quiet One (ACT) Caws, Wedz, Manda Lane, Ness Flett (VIC) and a number of artists who have chosen not to be identified.
