Matthew Hopkins: where the absurd and uncanny intersect

Other-worldly experiences are at the centre of Matthew Hopkins’ third solo exhibition at Gallery 9 which incorporates three series of works featuring discombobulated and tortured heads.

Hopkins’ practice exists where the absurd, the grotesque and the uncanny intersect, offering a comically haunting account of the confused (ill)logic we use to rationalize personal and collective existential crises.

Exhibition 23 March – 16 April
Opening Wednesday 23 March 6-8pm
Artist talk and sound performance: Saturday 2 April 4-5pm

John Aslanidis: Medium Cool

Two of John Aslanidis’s remarkable large sound paintings are being exhibited side by side at COFA’s Kudos Gallery until Saturday 19 March.

These fantastic paintings “capture the evolving modulations of colour that capture the mesmerising array of sound waves that populate our environment” and are exhibited alongside video works by Denis Beaubois, Shaun Gladwell, Angelica Mesiti and Khaled Sabsabi.

Anna Kristensen’s exhibition wins admirers

Anna Kristensen’s exhibition is continuing to attract admirers with the exclamation of “wow!” escaping the lips of those who walk into the panoramic painting Indian Chamber. As well as recognition from our visitors, this extraordinary work has featured in the Sun Herald, The Sydney Morning Herald, Artist Profile and Dassuperpaper. Thank you!

There is still time to witness this breathtaking work for yourself – the exhibition runs until March 19. The show also includes exquisite small paintings and drawings which tie into the idea of Chamber.

In conjunction with Art Month, there will be an exhibition talk at Gallery 9 with Gary Carsley and Andrew Frost on Saturday 19 March 12-12.30. All welcome.

Anna Kristensen in Metro

Andrew Frost’s review of Metro in today’s Sydney Morning Herald:
“With a strange and shifting sense of perspective, the effect is like being in a cave complete with stalagmites and stalactites, hidden flood lighting and a path that beckons you on into the darkness”
