c3 May Exhibition
The c3 May Exhibition is visually and conceptually diverse. Entering the gallery, visitors will be greeted by Tracey Lamb's immersive architectural installation that references pioneering modernist architect Eileen Gray. Both Piers Greville and Kez Hughes are known for their considered photorealistic painting. In this exhibition, Greville uses painting to unpack psychological states, while Hughes painstakingly depicts a work of art made by another artist, as a from of appropriation. c3 Projects presents the group exhibition 'A Joke Without Laughter', which muses upon artworks that may initially seem playful, but upon closer inspection are found to be evasive or cynical. For 'The City is A Horror Story', Louis Mason utilises fiction, painting, projection and textiles, alongside fiction from contributing artists, to explore linguistic and emotional communication. Finally, c3 is proud to present Yuria Okamura's expansive abstract wall paintings as the first in a series of exhibition outcomes as part of c3's fully funded mentorships and opportunities program, supported by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation and by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
