Exhibitions / Brainstorms: Momentary Psychological Disturbences

31.05.2005 to 02.07.2005

Curated by Clare Lewis. Press release: GRANTPIRRIE presents an exciting array of new works by seven young contemporary artists who reflect upon the anxieties and fluctuations of what it is to be here now. These ‘momentary disturbances’ seek to interrupt the incessant pace of contemporary culture, providing a pause in which one can reflect on who we are and what we are becoming.... Chris Bond paints, amongst other things, the graphic covers of 1960s Penguin books. His canvases efface the titles, author and any other hallmarks of a book but include in painstaking detail the wrinkles, discolouration, creases and dog-ears accrued over the passage of time. These super-real canvases could be seen as an archaeological investigation into an extinct culture both in terms of the original artefact and the brand of modernism they purport.
