Modern Times Presents: 'BIG SHOW' by Billie Justice Thomson

  • Modern Times Gallery 311 Smith Street Fitzroy, VIC, 3065 Australia (map)

We can’t wait to see the latest collection of work by Billie Justice Thomson! In each painting, individual objects are depicted in dramatically oversized scale – think human-sized Artline markers, baguettes and bottles of Lillet.

Wildly unconventional formats are employed – long narrow sizes that can be hung vertically or horizontally. Subject matter is boldly rendered on white backgrounds – richly polished and saturated by painting on the reverse side of Perspex. Combined, a potent series emerges with an unmistakably offbeat rhythm, and the power to enchant and surprise in a manner that belies the everyday subject matter.

Join Billie at Modern Times and exhibition partners Sample Brew and Blackhearts & Sparrows at the opening on Thursday October 17 for a celebratory drink!

DATE AND TIME:
Opening Night: Thursday 17th October, 6pm-8pm
Exhibiting: Thursday 17th October – Sunday 27th October
