You are invited to the opening of Bill Platz’s exhibition, Rigging Portraits where you have the pleasure to view his recent portraiture in a range of media and mediums. Bill says that portraits are rigged, rigged in a manner familiar to grifters and confidence artists. These portraits reveal rigging immediately, seducing the spectator by exposing the pretense or they can conceal the rigging. This new series of Bill’s work, consisting of drawings, prints, videos, polaroids and paintings on fibreglass, grab your attention and you will be completely drawn into your role as the viewer. The works are set-ups for the spectator- studio-theatrics; elaborate constructions in which performance and pose culminates.
