the death of an image @ off the kerb gallery

The skull is a symbol of death and mortality, familiar to all across history and genre. Think of Mexico’s Day of the Dead, metal band t-shirts, goths, tattoo art and Renaissance oil paintings. The current show at Off the Kerb’s front gallery is called ‘The Death of an Image’, and features 31 works exploring skull-related themes. You’ll encounter skulls in watercolour, ink, spray paint, fine liner, print, projection and multimedia. ‘The Death of an Image’ opened on Feb 7, and runs until Feb 21. Contributing artists include Launa Winship, Emily Vanderlism, The Zoo Keeper, Meat Sauce, Hayley O’Connor, Laine Fraser, Lucinda Wolber, MC drawn, Jenna Winship and Wilhelm Laurie. Look out for Emily Vanderlism’s Seance and Voodoo pencil/watercolour illustrations (prints of the two smaller works Red and Blue are also available), Launa Winship’s psychedelic assemblage work, and MC drawn’s ink/watercolour skull fish (beside the stairs). Don’t miss The Zoo Keeper’s three works beside the front door. Skulls, mushrooms, fish and Bubble-O-Bill in watercolour, spray paint and fine liner…
