We couldn’t be prouder to wrap up the exhibition calendar with an oustanding exhibition from the effervescent and utterly talented painter, Billie Justice Thomson.
‘The Order of Things’ showcases a series of Billie’s playful and humorous paintings in the illustrative and nostalgic style she is so well known for.
Billie gleans endless inspiration from the everyday and the unique lens with which she views her world.
Loved by us and Modern-Times-art-lovers alike, her colourful and graphic style is immediately striking but the particular way she presents familiar subjects means the viewer often finds one or two pieces that especially resonate with them.
The exhibition moves through a range of subject matters, from the familiar – in a painting of a red pair of socks, to the creepy – a cleanly severed, perfectly manicured hand.
“When viewed together, they create a narrative where the images are arranged and rearranged into a sequence that can tell many stories, it all hinges on the state of mind of the viewer,“ states Billie. “There is a departure into slightly more sinister territory with my latest series”.
We’re spoilt with stunning wines from Gomersal Wines and cider and beer from Young Henrys so mark September 24 in your calendar and join us to celebrate this clever and funny exhibition from 6-8pm at a NEW VENUE 466 Smith Street, Collingwood. Please RSVP to [email protected].
The exhibition is open at Modern Times from 25th September and will run until the 8th October. See you there!
