Lure & Illusion

As the title says, “Lure & Illusion” (oil on wood panel) is as the title suggests, dealing with more simplistic understanding of that metaphor, yet opening out into stranger possibilities of hypnotism, madness and opium dreams!

19 Karen’s March Exhibition

As I have mentioned in an earlier post I have been part of 19 Karen’s March Showing which had a fantastic number of people turn up on the night, so here are some pictures and I will fill you all in with more soon, but here are just a few of my works and how they were hung, if you want to see more, I will be putting more up from the night in the exhibitions section of this site, thanks.

Updated RED II Gallery

There has been another addition to the series RED II so go have a look in the gallery section at the piece shown below, and hopefully you will see how it fits into a further context, ie: within a series of work that all overlap and work together to bring out a much larger meaning.  Cheers,

Jared

New Series RED II

I have decided to put underneath the exhibition section of the blog site a new series which I am still currently working on to hopefully give you a great preview of what the entire series will be like and what my next solo project will involve, so please check it out, and I hope you enjoy!

Jared.  (PS:   I am also including a self portrait series underneath the exhibition section as it has been something I have also been having a lot of fun with and learning a lot too!  I have decided to name the series “Selfies” since this has become such an interesting aspect of out culture.)

A Further Look at Some Work in Progress

Well, unfortunately I don’t have much time on my hands at the moment, I’ve been spending almost every waking moment working upon paintings for my exhibition, or running around delivering flyers, putting up posters and inviting people to the opening.

I thought it would be great to share another picture with you; it is a snapshot of a painting for the exhibition.  I hope you enjoy the small snippet of what I have been working on, and until next time, cheers.

Jared.

RED

A Brief Outline

‘Red’ is about a collection of thought’s and experiences from both the past and present, depicted through symbolism and a subjective iconography referencing the fashion world in particular.  It is reflecting upon an outcast, debauched, bohemian attitude within society, juxtaposed with typological and metaphorical signs of beauty and hope. 

‘Red’ is about passion, desire, anger and power.

Hey people, I have finally gotten around to making an event page on Facebook for my solo show in July; ‘RED.’  The show is running from the 16th of July until the 30th of July at Red Door Gallery, USQ Toowoomba.  I will be having an opening for the show on the 16th at 5pm, so if you can make it, your most welcome!

Check out the following link to the event page:  https://www.facebook.com/events/152844354901508/?notif_t=plan_user_joined

Here is a little snippet of a work in progress, that will be featured in the show:
