Thom Stuart is a Sunshine Coast based painter and printmaker, whose work draws heavily on his experience surrounded by both natural and urban environments.
The show ‘Dead Space’ is a collection of observations from the overlooked landscape, drawing focus away from the perceived ideal of traditional landscape painting. What emerges is a mixture of found structures, signposts, neglected surfaces, failed monuments, evidence of love stories, artifacts of superficial control and the remnants of an assault on the natural world.
Through landscape and still life painting, the work reflects modern rituals. It unveils a permanent scar on the natural space imprinting an identity onto these landscapes, thus depicting the way in which we alter the environment for our own purposes.
This exhibition is a collaboration between Analogue Gallery and The Design Conference, tieing in with their 2017 Launch Event. This free exhibition is open to the general public, with entry via Greaser Bar.
Note: this exhibition will be on show for one night only and is an all ages event. Under 18's are welcome to attend (collect a wrist band on entry).
Make sure to follow Thom in the lead up to his show.
