Emerging artist Denzel Maple preys on the world's ancient past by modernising momentous figureheads.

A world of rock and roll, thievery, exploitation and debauchery, where greed has trumped creed and belief is replaced by consumerism.

See how these almighty beings have adapted to survive. Join us for opening night of D/O.25 ‘Dirty Deities’ on Thursday February 21st at Disorder Gallery.

JENNIFER HUTCHISON

D/O, Event, Opening, Art WalkElliott Cole

Jennifer Hutchison recalibrates the still life in a contemporary context, questioning perceptions of beauty and the tradition of the still life as a female domain.

Her upcoming exhibition is a departure for Hutchison, whose earlier exhibitions turned to the palette of rural life, equally romantic and abstracted. Influenced by the Dutch Golden Age, these paintings are presented on dark fields, romantic and moody. She draws upon the impermanence of life – decay, beauty and bounty.

‘Impermanence 1’ by Jennifer Hutchison

Hutchison graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art form the National Art School in 2017. She grew up in Regional NSW before moving to Sydney. A sense of open space and palette evocative of that dry rural landscape has become a foundation of her painting, both as a point of reference and point of departure.

Please join us for opening night of D/O.24 Jennifer Hutchison on Thursday January 31st from 6-8pm at Disorder Gallery

If you can’t make it for opening night, Jennifer Hutchison’s work will also be on display during 2019’s very first Sydney East Art Walk . Join Disorder and 15 other local galleries for this self-guided art walk on Saturday February 9th from 12-4pm. Maps will be available at Disorder and in all participating galleries.

D/O.24 Jennifer Hutchison runs through February 16th.

ON THE SQUARE

D/O, Event, OpeningElliott Cole

Ivor Cole's latest exhibition 'On The Square' is all about that... literally!... a mixed collection of thirty paintings in either 30x30cm or 60x60cm square. And though they may be contained in shape, there is no limit to subject, with each completely unique painting complemented by Ivor's detailed hand and characteristicly cheeky humor.

Ivor states "Working with smaller sized canvases posed a new way of thinking. Coming from a scenic art background both the square and smaller format was a challenge. The idea of telling a story within limited perimeters proved to be not only challenging but also exciting."

After dropping out of the limelight during the 90's Cole was, in his own words, "beavering away in the studio recovering from a miasma of drugs and several tempestuous relationships". 

At the turn of the millennia Cole upped sticks and moved far from Sydney to the top end - Darwin. As well as showing in several galleries in Darwin, he says he was "working away on behalf of the mostly neglected Territory artists and producing copious new works". 

In 2003 Cole formed the Gallery Sometimes project in Darwin showcasing local artists working in the western style. Gallery Sometimes was a series of pop ups, at one time running 15 spaces in the CBD. He also secured the first legal street art site in central Darwin. 

Now residing in Bali for most of the year, in 2016 he was invited to join the Bali Artists Camp, a government sponsored art initiative, as the sole non Indonesian artist.
