Breeze Block Gallery presents: WIDER THAN A POSTCARD
A group exhibition curated by Sven Davis
Over 200 artists have been invited to produce up to 3 works each based on the traditional postcard format. The surface can be an antique postcard – either from a thrift store or maybe even from the family archive, a new shop-bought card or a home-made postcard on each artists chosen medium to the 6×4 inch size limit imposed. Each postcard can either start as a blank canvas or the new composition can be woven into the existing image on the card. The artworks are to be displayed in a grid formation to create an holistic installation of more than 400 individual artworks.
The exhibition opens Thursday 2nd May 2013 6pm, with a preview evening on Wednesday 1st May 2013 6pm alongside olive47’s solo exhibition in Gallery 2 ‘bonita bonita’. olive47’s bold use of color operates at a visceral level and activates an emotional response to the saturation throughout the body of work as a cerebral communication device. bonita bonita will contain paintings on wood panels presented individually, as assemblages and also combined within mixed media installations.
