Nervous Laughter

WHEN : 15th – 22nd March / Opening 15th March, 6:00pm
WHERE : Bleeding Heart Gallery

Nervous Laughter brings together seven emerging Australian artists in an investigation of play and colour in contemporary painting, drawing and sculpture. The exhibition will run from the 15th – 22nd March.

Responding to strangeness in the everyday and visual culture, this group exhibition engages with awkward and intuitive responses to traditional fine art mediums as a means of reflecting aspects of contemporary identity and experience. Examining a playful tension between naïve gesture, obsessive process, figurative abstraction, hyperactive explosions of colour and the transformation of the mundane into extraordinary; this collection of artists reflect everyday anxieties and banalities with an overarching sense of humour and irreverence.

Curated by Amanda Wolf, Nervous Laughter is produced in conjunction with the Bleeding Heart Emerging Curator program. Selected artist that will be exhibition included; Lucy Anderson, Jamie Mumford, Caity Reynolds, Angelica Roache-Wilson, Anna Vu, Pete Warden, Amanda Wolf.
