24 Apr Mia Darling and Rory Emmett New Shows At 99 Loop Gallery
Be a part of two upcoming new exhibitions ‘Things to Hide Behind’ by Mia Darling and ‘Building Ground: Grey Areas’ by Rory Emmett.
The opening will take place on Tuesday the 30th of April from 17.30, and the shows will run until the 1st of June.
‘Building Ground: Grey Areas’ is Emmett’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. The artist has received numerous recognitions for his thought-provoking work. In this exhibition, Emmett will exhibit several artworks varying in media from painting to installation. The artist writes about his upcoming show:
‘I seek to question the symbolic violence of Westernized standards of beauty and success which are still aspired to and normalized within the post-colonial landscape, as well as trying to come to terms with notions of Rainbowism and constructive criticism of democracy still experiencing growing pains’.
‘Things to Hide Behind’ is a solo exhibition by Mia Darling. She is a 2018 graduate from Michaelis School of Fine Art and was awarded the prestigious painting prize for her final year’s work. The artist utilizes plasticine to create paintings that portray both a playful and sensitive expression of femininity. Explorations of femininity and beauty will truly characterize her upcoming show. Darling writes:
‘There are many things to hide behind, corners, hands, fans, bushes, makeup, laughter. Behind these things are mysteries concealed. This show hesitantly peeks behind the biggest mysteries of all: the body’.
