LAST DAYS: NEVER EVER ENDING by CREATURE CREATURE

EVER EVER ENDING is a boundless new exhibition by the artist duo Creature Creature, as they continue their eternal journey of collaboration and creativity. The show is a reflection on their past work and future dreams, as they commemorate 8 years since one of their earliest exhibitions in the same space. It continues the narrative initiated in NEVER ENDING back in 2015 as the pair linger in the perpetual themes of duality, infinity, unbroken loops and the symbolic ouroboros.

The enclosed realms and floating worlds of these new artworks will remind you of the connection between all things, from the natural universe to our own limitless consciousness.

CREATURE CREATURE is an artist duo based in Melbourne, Australia, comprising Chanel Tang and Ambrose Rehorek. With a collaborative art practice that spans across exhibiting art, murals, street art, design, and illustration, they have established themselves as a unique voice in the visual landscape.

Incorporating their Chinese and Czech backgrounds, Creature Creature's art is a convergence of Asian aesthetics and style with a Western perspective, resulting in works brimming with contrast and fluidity.

Their work embodies the concept of duality and the sum of a whole, emphasising messages of togetherness, states of balance, yin and yang.

Through their partnership, they aim to preserve diversity and create artistic expressions that are complex, layered, and interconnected, celebrating the beauty of unity.

Round out your day of Christmas shopping by stopping by the gallery to enjoy live mural painting 10-4pm 13-15th December or join us to celebrate with a drink 6-4pm Friday 15/12.

LAST DAYS: Entice by Charlotte-Aimee Smith

07.11.23 - 11.11.13

Entice speaks to the allure of discovery one experiences when contemplating where to go in a new city. From my experiences and found media this collection seeks to capture not just the architectural beauty, but also recreate dynamic urban scenes. Each painting tells a story of the urban experience, the role of public spaces and the significance of gathering places in our lives. They serve as a visual documentation of Melbourne’s restaurant scenes, adding to the city’s narrative and highlighting the ever-present connection between people and place.

Charlotte-Aimee is a New Zealand born painter based in Sydney, Australia. She is known for her intimate paintings, working from personal photographs and found media to create a narrative of place.
