The Landscape of Feeling - Stephen Brasch Opening Night

It's been several years since Stephen has exhibited work, but the wait was definitely worth it.

It was a packed house at LoveLove last night with guests enjoying the friendly atmosphere as they gazed upon Stephen's large body of work which explores the themes of topography and location.

These thoughtful and detailed works are best viewed in the flesh, so make sure you make your way to the gallery to see them for yourself. Definitely not one to be missed. The show continues for a fortnight.

The Landscape of Feeling - New Works by Stephen Brasch

 LOVELOVE STUDIO is proud to present the new and exciting paintings of local artist Stephen Brasch. Carmen Keates sums up Stephen's work beautifully in the following passage.

 When I look at these paintings I feel the calm intelligence I associate with Stephen. There’s no avoiding that. But there’s something else that is beyond the literal personality a friend can recognise. There’s a traveller in there. Not to Paris or London, but between suburbs, states, regions, and times in one’s life.
There’s a feeling of returning and being by turns surprised, disappointed, or even a bit confused by what he finds. Some pictures have the beginning of construction, but it’s almost like the viewer has returned not to a place that was pristine last time he saw it, but maybe more developed. Maybe a shopping centre is now the field that was cleared in preparation for it. The scene has been deconstructed, gone back to its last point of change and disturbance. Things have been taken away from the place of memory, not added.

There is a time displacement, like a dream. And the light in the paintings adds to this—the dusk, the night. Like a long walk on nightfall. The traveller moves away from the TV, the kitchen, and goes for a walk. He finds bulldozers dozing, deserted overpasses, empty highways. He is drifting through the world held still for him to examine. All the people are gone. He is able to walk around all of it and is not sure whether it is fortunate or horrifying that it hums with solitude.

Please join us on the 10th  of OCTOBER to celebrate the new works of Stephen Brasch at LOVELOVE STUDIO. Opening reception 6- 10 pm.

It's Starting To Pile Up

We here at LoveLove can't speak highly enough of the artists that we are lucky enough to work with. Without you guys, it just wouldn't happen.
While I could easily spend the next two paragraphs heaping praise upon the local creatives, I feel I must get to the point and give all our past collaborators a heads up.
Being artists ourselves, we understand that priorities and organizational skills can have rather broad and loose definitions, but unfortunately we are defined by physical space at the studio, and we are slowly running out of it.
If you have had work in a past show or bought work in the last year and have failed to collect, consider this an invitation to come in and say HI and touch base with the cool cats at LoveLove Studio.

And then leave with your stuff, or else we're going to sell it on eBay and use the funds to buy spray paint and skate stickers.
heh heh heh


Play Free Opening Night

Last Friday saw the opening of Eva Turek-Jewkes photographic exhibition Play Free.
A mix of socialites and skateboarders filled the gallery and were witness to Evie's journey through Eva's lens.
It was a great turnout, and the thoughtful work was well received.
The show continues for the rest of the week, so make sure you stop in.
