Above and Below exhibition by artist Dennis McCart
Brisbane painter Dennis McCart and Sydney-based duo Sarah Murphy and Matthew Feder, a.k.a. Painting Installation Travel Society, team up to bring the cute, quirky and colourful elements from Japan to their collaborative exhibition Above and Below.
In this collaborative exhibition, the artists draw inspiration from everyday objects and experiences encountered in Japan’s cityscape to create striking artworks; from hyper-realistic paintings of vibrant manhole covers and funky prints playing on Japan’s centuries-old paste-up culture, through to neon infused ukiyo-e genre hacks on silkscreen print.
Above and Below disrupts the daily rinse-and-repeat with vivid, offbeat, and at times confusing, artworks.
