pen, ink, tea, acrylic
17 x 25 cm

Real Life Has So Much Light is a collection of works made over the last two years from different locations in India.

Kwality Chai
SAPNA CHANDU

SAPNA CHANDU
Kwality Chai . 2017
video still

Set in a hypothetical reality in which India has taken over Australia, Kwality Chai is a playful and subversive exploration of cultural imperialism in a distinctly Australian context.


Aftermarket
BASIL PAPOUTSIDIS

BASIL PAPOUTSIDIS
Ballast (Aftermarket) . 2017
steel & epoxy enamel
80 x 140 cm

Whilst exploring the post-painterly and sculptural arenas of minimalist construction, Aftermarket is a product of Basil Papoutsidis’ aesthetic fanaticism with material behaviours and the applications of custom automotive culture. Formal experiments explore the introspective quality of material deconstruction, examining object hood in space in the form of rigorous formal experiments. These experiments exist three dimensionally, yet reference the platform of the image and linkage between the format of painting and dimension of sculpture.


Mine - Yours
ROBERT HAGUE

ROBERT HAGUE
Mine - Yours . 2016
hand coloured lithograph on cotton rag paper
70 x 70cm

Robert Hague’s imagery plays on the (im)permanence of historical objects, the ambiguities of their meanings, and the cultural associations of their forms. His prints are immediately attractive but harbour contradicting layers that deepen the longer one considers them.
