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:

Building Ground: Grey Areas

‘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’.
