Supermarket Wanders

Artist’s Statement

The moment when I look at a green chili in the supermarket, it transforms, from an ordinary vegetable to something very curious and captivating. That moment of encounter and transformation, is where this body of work starts. It is very much about wandering, mentally and physically, intuitive decisions, and chance.
The subjects of this series of drawings are all based on the fruits and vegetables I found interesting during my “supermarket wanders”. When making works, I am always more drawn to non-human subjects. They are less confronting and very generous. Unlike humans, they allow us to look directly, curiously, and sometimes even obsessively. And responding to our gaze, they also look back, inviting us to wonder, and imagine. Through such exchange of gaze, submerged, sometimes ineffable feelings and thoughts get to surface, and when they do, I try to capture them through drawing.
The reason why I go on such wanders and make works this way is very much like the Dadaists and Surrealists. While society stresses us very much to understand through logic, and to justify with reasons, I think the unconscious and illogical are often overlooked. Thus, instead of making a statement and convey a certain meaning through my works, I want my images to be very open. I hope people can look at my drawings not with logical minds nor through analytical lenses, but with their hearts, and through curious and naïve eyes.

Kitty Calvert
Elevating the Forgotten

Please join us and the artist for the opening celebration of this exhibition on Thursday 17 March 6.30-8.30 pm. 🍷

81 Denmark St, Kew VIC 3101

🔴Exhibition Catalogue available on our website. Link in bio.

Artists’ Statement

The inspiration for Kitty Calvert’s unique assemblage sculptures, comes from a love of vintage and a desire to re-use and recycle unique pieces of discarded treasure, evoking cherished memories of childhood and making new cool stuff out of old cool stuff.
We invite the viewer to reflect on the concept of waste in the world, of recycling that waste into a new form and the potential journey each individual piece has made to its final resting place inside the sculpture. In today’s world where things are designed with obsolescence in mind, we find there is a hankering for things that last.
With the sculptures, we have given the treasure a new life. Seeing the pieces recycled, revived and restored, reimagined, reborn and reinvigorated in a way that brings new joy to a new audience.
No two sculptures are the same, each unique piece has been left in its original found state and speaks to the individual of many things. Our aim is that the sculptures give you fond memories of simpler times and transport you on your own magical journey of memory.
Kitty’s wish is to delight her audience with mischievous frivolity and quirky humor.

LAST DAYS TO VIEW!

almenardiaz
Chromatic Rhythms

🔴Exhibition Catalogue available on our website. Link in bio.

The exhibition runs until 12 March.
Gallery hours: Tue-Fri 12-6pm, Sat 11am-6pm, Closed on public holidays

Exhibition Statement

Carlos represents in his artworks an investigation between chromatics and the integration between linear patterns, based on different composition techniques where carlos has developed the series: linear rhythmic, concentric rhythmic and aurora rhythmic. The result is given where the colour appears and fades to another colour through the visual rhythm. This creates an optical illusion in which everything static becomes a movement in which colours that do not exist in the composition can appear.
The style of visual art in which works are investigated and depicted with the use of optical illusions is called Op-art. They usually cause the viewer the impression of movement, of the existence of hidden or non-existent images or colours.
