Outrage Sunday 165 PoVi art

Art strongly influenced by post-vibrancy modernism and political and social upheaval? Let’s start with this Wembley installation, Slaughter of the Vacuums. It was created by a former rigger who lived in a donga for 10 years: he was haunted by his resource-boom experiences, to the point of mental breakdown. He moved to Darch, one of Perth’s leading artistic suburbs, where he was influenced by the expressionless, the Registered Verge movement, and other modernist schools. cleanersReconciling artistic style with industrial mass production and consumerism? Too pre-PoVi for this artist, who only makes things out of the things of which they are made. Crucifixion III, East Perth. tree artPoVi art is either bereft of metaphor, or is covered in it. The Furnace’s friend found this bucket of human hair at Fremantle. The hair had been sewn into a headband. Untitled, but The Furnace thought Scalp Tax. humanhair1When they start messing with the POST’s art competition for kids, you know we are drenched in decadence. This was called Magic Lego, and created in Nedlands.magic lego

    Not sure if this fits within the terms of the ECU study? Might be time to put in another grant application. Suddenly a 1985 VN Commodore in the lounge room isn’t looking so bad after all.

    Another sweet sherry for the road Dot?

    I rather like crucifixion. Does it come in colours?

    My, what a disturbing image.

    This appears to be a departure from longstanding and well understood practices in Perth sand-hills, namely anonymous homosexual acts and low level drug dealing. I hope this is not the start of a trend.


  7. For around $300K you get a seat in the exclusive Floreat apartments. Be warned : strata fees have to go up to pay for painting and general cleanup.
    Doodle bug : A touch of the Alsatian’s rampant with the artist playing back ground / fore ground games and alternating subject/object/predicate.
