Exhibition:

"We've only just begun"
Minna Gilligan


Opening: Wednesday 9 May, 6 - 8pm
Dates: 9 May - 2 June 2018

Gilligan presents digitally printed paintings on fabric which in turn are embellished with sequins and further painterly gestures. These heavily adorned works highlight the sinister amongst the sickly sweet, and place emphasis upon the vast, maximalist visual assemblages present in contemporary social media culture.

Minna Gilligan works primarily with painting, drawing and collage. Her practice speaks of fleeting, personal encounters with the past and present, and manifests in a tumultuous reconciliation of both. Her works are playgrounds of colour, often inhabited by lone protagonists trapped in states of longing, sadness or exhalation. Though her paintings reference 1960s/ ‘70s psychedelia and evoke a nostalgic romanticism - with lone women floating in technicolor dreams - her work is atemporal, existing in a utopian space of imagery filtered through the digital realm.

Minna Gilligan has a Bachelor of Fine Arts (First Class Honours) from the Victorian College of the Arts. She has held solo exhibitions at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Castlemaine Art Museum, Daine Singer, Melbourne Art Fair, Spring 1883, West Space, TCB Art Inc, Rear View and Dudspace (Melbourne) and participated in group exhibitions at the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne), National Galley of Australia (Canberra), Heide Museum of Art (Melbourne), Alt Space (New York), Ontario College of Art and Design (Canada), Space 15 Twenty (Los Angeles), PICA (Perth), Spring 1883 (Sydney), Papermill ARI (Sydney), and in Melbourne at Knight Street Art Space, TCB Art Inc, and George Paton Gallery.
