Kate Mitchell and Tara Marynowsky are two very different artists being showcased at Chalk Horse Gallery in Darlinghurst.
Mitchell’s works are quirky comments on modern society. In Future Fallout, the artist cycles to a colourful psychic shop which collapses as she opens the door. As the façade crumbles into reality she returns to her bike and rides away. The simple film is an animated metaphor of life’s conundrums
In Venus Of Venus, Marynowsky’s pieces are deceptively childlike. Her pastel watercolours and collages survey the feminine in various incarnations from motherhood to wicked witch. Directly influenced by her maternity, their soft tones and smudged lines indicate the beauty and uncertainty of the experience.
Together these artists represent distinctly unique visions of the contemporary world. (LR)
