Chase Archer: sub-urban

WHEN : 7th April – 29th April
WHERE : Woolloongabba Art Gallery

sub-urban is a collection of recent paintings and prints by Chase Archer. Archer describes his work as painted collages assembled from a bank of iPhone images, childhood photographs, drawings, mass media and the historic art canon. These images provide the framework for scenes exploring the suburban condition. “With these works, the inter-relationship of the images become key. Sometimes you can say a lot with very few images, a kind of shorthand which can tap into a variety of memories and emotions.”

Opening: Saturday afternoon, 8 April 3pm – 6pm
