‘My mates that skate’ is a show about people and the exuberant culture
The show consists of portraits of my mates-people who share my
passion and creative interest in skateboarding. Through the portraits
I aim to communicate the general themes and attitudes of skateboarding
and how these link my friends and I as individuals.
All of the people in these portraits were at one stage in their lives
(or still are) members of skate crews from the small rural town of
Leeton, NSW. As years went by, many things changed. Groups and
individuals went their separate ways. For some, careers began, and
real life became unavoidable. With all of these things happening, one
thing remained constant, skateboarding and being a skateboarder
(whenever possible) was essential. People in these images, for the
most part, are good people. Good people with bad habits. Drinking too
much, getting into fights, and having fun by being stupid became
something that went hand in hand with skateboarding. It became a
collective identity that each individual could proudly contribute to.
In these artworks I aimed to create a mood that truly reflects my
perception of skateboarding and us.
We are very sad to announce that kind of — gallery will be closed until further notice. We have invited some of our friends favourite artists to exhibit in one last group show to celebrate, so in the vain of “A Type Of Show” and “End Of The Role”, we invite you to join us for this epic group show. We are very sad to be leaving here, although we still have delusions of grandeur and still aim for world domination, we hope to have another amazing space very soon! We will not fade into the night!
Pennies for the Ferryman
Throughout history many musicians, poets and artists have explored death and it’s related themes. Ultimately the questions comes down to ‘What happens next?’
Pennies for the Ferryman aims to explore the inevitable end and subsequent renewal thereafter with a mixed media exhibition displaying a broad range of artists’ interpretation on the mystery of death.
This will be kind of — gallery’s final show in its current state…
