I enjoyed my visit to ‘Super Naturale’ on Saturday. Jacqui Stockdale’s photographic portraits are painterly and theatrical – a real freak show assortment of characters. I love how she has combined Balinese carving with gods and superheroes from many different cultures. My favourite works are Ramagan, Selfie and Portrata de Flora, but I found the whole show compelling – in a somewhat dark and grotesque way. On until 15 April at Helen Gory Galerie, 108 Gertrude St, Fitzroy. Northcote art lovers will recall her cameo series at Open Studio as part of the Small Works Small Spaces (Northern Exposure Festival) in 2012.
