ALERT THE PRESS!

My first press release! Well, as part of Buratti Fine Art’s upcoming group exhibition. I’m very excited to be amongst such fresh talent. I do hope somebody likes my illustrations enough to purchase them – for my sake and my friend Karys McEwen’s who is doing such a fantastic job curating the show!

OPENING THURSDAY 19 SEPTEMBER 6PM

A showcase of contemporary art from early-career creatives in Western Australia, Bright Lights, Small City celebrates emerging talent from our isolated state. All hailing from the sunny west coast, these artists debunk the myth that you need to move east to make a name for yourself in the Australian art world.

The exhibition will unveil new works by painters, photographers, filmmakers, sculptors and mixed media artists. This eclectic collection includes a large marble installation from Lauren Ravi, new work from local street artist Amok Island and skyscapes from Perth photographer Lisa Kyle. The experience on show is mixed, but of a consistently high quality. First time exhibitors like Mimi Cho and Kyle Prentice will be displayed among Perth’s best creative exports such as Jackson Eaton and Thea Costantino.

Brought together by young curator Karys McEwen, the exhibition fills a midway gap between traditional art galleries and younger artist-run initiatives. “By giving emerging artists the opportunity to exhibit their work in an established gallery setting, this showcase allows young creatives to connect with each other and potential buyers,” she says. “The more support artists receive in Perth, the more the art industry is likely grow in this small city. In its own humble way, Bright Lights, Small City aims to achieve just that.”

All works are for sale.
