Miso – Bright Night Sky

As a tattooist and street artist, working under the name MISO, Stanislava Pinchuk’s artwork spans the globe, on people and in cities everywhere.

After so many years traveling, Stanislava has resettled in her Melbourne studio and in a process of dreaming and mapping, Stanislava has begun retracing her life through delicate pinprick maps on white paper detailing the cities she has called home.
Hidden within each map are her memories, routines and experiences, as well as pathways leading to her friends houses across the world. Recently The National Gallery of Australia acquired two of her pinprick works, making Stanislava one of the youngest artists in the Australian national collection.

Bright Night Sky will be an exhibition of fourteen pinprick maps on paper and large installations by Stanislava on display at Backwoods Gallery, Melbourne.

Coalescence – Drewfunk x Otis Chamberlain at Backwoods

COALESCENCE, a collaborative show from Otis Chamberlain and Drewfunk, opens this Friday from 6pm-10pm at Backwoods Gallery, Melbourne.

OTISNDREW-PROMO-PRINTa

Coalescence: the merging of many into one. A fundamental principle evident across all magnitudes and timescales. From the behaviour of subatomic particles and neurosynaptic pathways – to the evolution of galaxy super-clusters and beyond, Coalescence is the unifying process that defies entropy, organizes systems, manifests structure and perpetuates the exchange of energy and information – the act of creation itself.

Shida – Ecstasy In The Abyss

y-GWunNhcY_lek8cCG7hs33k60ng92riSme2Dmf-Wi8

Returning to Melbourne after a huge worldwide expedition touring four continents, Shida is currently working on his latest installation at Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne. Exploring fractal, cataclysmic colours and a constantly evolving mythology, Shida weaves an intense mythology in his work.

Congruous with his work, Shida’s name embodies flow, movement, and vivid colours. Enhanced by graphic lines, he pushes ideas of socio-sexual aspects of the body, his characters sprawling across buildings, wrapped in chaotic embraces, manic laughter spilling from their lips.

Ecstasy in the Abyss opens on the 19th April at:

Backwoods Gallery.
25 Easey street
Collingwood
Melbourne
Australia.
