Coming up in the Courthouse Youth Arts Gallery we have two solo exhibitions opening on Friday the 13th from 6pm – 8pm.
In the front of the gallery we have Pascalle Bailey’s debut solo show ‘human.’ This show analyses the experiences of humanness, focusing on the interaction between logic and emotion. ‘human.’ thoughtfully explores themes of love, mental health and self-perception. Pascalle Bailey is a Torquay-based artist who is currently studying Art Curation and History at Monash University. Specialising in ink and fineliner studies, Pascalle explores the mediative quality art-making brings through these mediums, as well as the visual contrast of artistic techniques. As a former visual arts intern at CHYA, Pascalle places an emphasis on the process and curation of works.
Opening in the back of the gallery space is a solo show by the prolific Joshua Maxwell de Hoog entitled ’Toys In My Dreams’. This show features one large panoramic painting of a dream Joshua had in which all the toys he wasn’t allowed as a kid were controlled by his mind in an expansive battle of life and death. He woke enthralled and inspired to paint, and has spent the last month delving beyond the dream. The darkest work yet from this young artist.
Both shows are running from July 13th until August 10.
The CHYA Gallery is open Monday – Friday from 9am – 5pm at 60 Little Malop Street, Geelong. All exhibitions are free and all are welcome to attend.
Yours in Art, CHYA.
