Backwoods Gallery (House of Bricks)
Beastman's innovative paintings explore the futuristic and overwhelming idea of nature coming to life in a way we could have never imagined. The artist's colour palette and further development of his distinctive style reflect the different elements of our young world and the organic lines and often symmetrical geometric patterns found in nature. The deities featured in his ambitious new works are a representation of nature progressing beyond the boundaries of our imagination, when the cosmic forces of nature eventually reveal the irrelevance of humanity in the universe.
In his first showing in Melbourne since July 2010, Beastman is bringing his unique style and new direction. Travelling around Australia and the world painting large scale aerosol works has noticeably evolved his unique and well recognised style.
Alongside his new paintings, this exhibition featured an installation of many unseen drawings, sketches and other materials. The installation will expose the artist's thoughts and art making processes whilst revealing the natural progression of his work over the last two years.
