Helen Pallikaros: Within, without
Burrinja City of Dandenong's Walker St Gallery She…2014 Award winner Helen Pallikaros’ solo exhibition Within, without showcases a body of her work developed over the past five years. From fleeting moments of sculptural encounter to deeper engagements with image, form and materiality, Pallikaros investigates the realm of body and the psychological landscape.
In her practice Pallikaros uses drawing, collage, sculpture, performance and photography to consider the relationship between the human emotive and psychological conditions and our animalistic, primal origins.
12 June - 12 July
Jessie’s sculptural mosaics explore the tensions of the arts of disguise whereby the environment becomes the subject and the subject its environment. While Katherine uses paint to explore the unique qualities of different animals and how they can be camouflaged within an environment.
Through patterns, repetition and colour, anything and everything can be disguised within an artwork. Mimicry is a visual exploration of the ways mimicry and camouflage can be depicted.
Official opening Saturday 13 June, 2:30pm
