Exhibition: The Seven Seas, Get a Grip

The Seven Seas, Get a Grip
Exhibition Dates11th June - 12th July
Sponsored by:

The Seven Seas is a Melbourne based multidisciplinary artist working in illustration and sculpture. He works across many styles from figurative to abstract work, always with a focus on bold colours and large forms. The Seven Seas explores woodworking, casting and illustration techniques to represent his recurring cast of characters and forms reflecting memories, thoughts and travels.

In this new exhibition he explores his past works through memories and photographs and applies them in new ways using sculpture and painting - combining abstract forms with figurative illustrations. Work is created out of carved wood, acrylic paint, enamel paint, oil markers and poly urethane castings.

Within the work there are finely detailed illustrations taken from photos, paired with bold abstract shapes and stylised characters. Together these elements create a storyboard -  autobiographical reflections and distant memories made up of bold shapes and colours.

Wanting to demonstrate accountability, recognise privilege and also raise awareness, current exhibiting artist The Seven Seas has decided to donate all income from sales of his solo show Get a Grip to Seed.

Seed is Australia’s first Indigenous youth climate network.

“Our vision is for a just and sustainable future with strong cultures and communities, powered by renewable energy. Climate change is one of the greatest threats facing humanity, but we also know it is an opportunity to create a more just and sustainable world.” - https://www.seedmob.org.au/
