Julian Edwards Fine Arts Gallery invites you to ‘Snap, Cackle & Pop,’ an exhibition of works by Jeff Raglus (Melbourne), Neil 'Captain Pipe' McCann (Sydney) & Tim Fry (Byron Bay)
An unraveling and unique exhibition of three contemporary artists, who divide their practice between drawing, painting, woodwork, sculpture and mixed media. This exhibition draws upon naive characteristics of a complex life expressed through the eyes of a boy. Joyous cheekily comical tasteless puns. Colours and shapes of an innocent observer, depict cartoon like & playful scenes of an adult nature. Indecent innuendos, rough politics, industrialism, over-consumerism & general satire.
Encompassing all that is pop art aesthetics and covering a range of everyday imagery ~ bizarre humans, still life, condiments, old cars, landscapes, city skylines, buildings surreal scenarios. Blurring the boundaries between fine and graphic art.
The exhibition runs from 18th September to 8th October, with an opening night on Friday the 21st at 5:30pm, at 19A Byron Street, Bangalow. Artist discussions will also take place on Saturday the 22nd, with Raglus at 11:30am followed by McCann and Fry at 2:30pm.
Raglus is a multi-instrumental musician with an artistic streak, beginning with surfboard sprays and delving into fabrics, posters and record sleeve design.
McCann is a University of Northumbria graduate, currently living in Sydney, whose work explores stories of origin and myth across paintings, animations and films.
Tim Fry works in mixed media drawing and sculpture. The drawings are heavily influenced by Pop Art aesthetics and cover a range of everyday imagery from still life’s to landscapes, and buildings, whereas the sculpture has been exclusively concerned with architectural and industrial forms.
