 Ben Quilty - Notes on Chaos

Image1Image2Image3

Description

Australian artist Ben Quilty's latest show comprises paintings, sculptures and works on paper.

Trump tweets, North Korean missile launches, global terrorism, vengeful weather, disruptive economies and Middle East instability: it feels like the rug has been pulled from under us. How do we respond to a world upside down, a place of crumbling sureties?

Ben Quilty's new work expresses the uneasiness of a society anxious about the future through the lens of personal experience.

'Making art that flirts with insanity might just start to explore notions of the world's political framework. The success of a narcissistic ego maniac like Donald Trump needs to be met with a level of unhinged surrealism, don't you think?' says Ben Quilty.

Ben Quilty's latest solo show at Tolarno Galleries coincides with the inclusion of his work High Tide Mark at the NGV Triennial.

'Ben Quilty's new works are not for the squeamish – few comforts are offered. The process produces clamorous compositions, fuelled by burning emotions, fear and indignation, but also a challenge.' Michael Desmond, curator and writer.
