5 February – 22 February 2014: Pesky – Melbourne Street: Portraits of the Inner North

GALLERY 3:

 

Taking Melbourne’s Inner North as inspiration, PESKY has created a series of works that convey her fascination and fondness for the constantly evolving life of our city’s façades. These images provide a unique view of Melbourne, capturing the beauty that is to be found in the geometric structures that are formed through the intersection of architecture, tram lines, power-lines and roads.

Using photography as a base, the images are digitally manipulated in order to enhance the abstract qualities of each scene. Drawing on the urban simulacra of advertising, images and signs, PESKY exploits the juxtaposition between old and new to full effect, managing to combine starkness with a subtle sentimentality.

PESKY www.peskyenterprises.com was conceived in 2011 as the creative  brainchild of Melbourne illustrator/designer Caitlin Murray.
