When Kings Were Gods – Paintings by Johnny Kovacevic

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Within this stunning collection of large-scale oil paintings Johnny Kovacevic explores mankind’s desire to leave behind a legacy. Some trait or memory of one’s existence, just as the ancient kings and queens did in the past, building monuments that would proclaim something about their achievements, status, power and influence.

Johnny’s masterful juxtapositions of ancient relics and cosmic landscapes leave the viewer breathless with the power of early civilisation’s mythologies and aspirations.

Next Show: Dr Rev Bloodpainter, 4-10pm, July 1st ONLY


The Australian Artist known as Dr.Rev – Bloodpainter is giving not just his talent, but his very blood- to the art world. It is rare to find an artist who gives quite as much to his art as Dr Rev.

Unlike most artists, Dr.Rev possesses an insane capacity to turn crimson particles into outstanding creations that expand and push boundaries: All of the paintings by this exquisitely gifted painter are done exclusively in his own blood.

Many of Dr.Rev’s images are realistic, and surprisingly striking in nature. His images depict growth, human constraint and the evolution of using this very unique medium to capture his heart and soul.

Fiery Tails by Jason Howe

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

From the profuse scratchings in his sketchbooks, Sydney-based fine artist Jason Howe has created a new series of original and organic characters scribbled from the subconscious.

Fiery Tails, on exhibition at Monstrosity Gallery from 26 May 2011, places these characters in a mythology of otherworldly landscapes and parables.

Jason’s cosmic creations produce a hallucinatory vision of escapism. Through their colour, movement and surreal narratives, his work evokes a journey back to one’s youth, where vibrant and sometimes violent action-packed cartoons could make you belch your breakfast cereal.

Taking his influences from animations remembered from childhood, his work is infused with an obvious love of the natural world, its history & evolution along with sci-fi and the mysteries of the cosmos.

Jason’s exotic canvas, paper, wood and clay pieces bring to mind children’s stories filled with curious beings and lands. Sometimes reminiscent of fairytales or warped daydreams, each piece transports you to a magical, idealised and extremely happy place.

Jason will be celebrating the opening of Fiery Tails at Monstrosity Gallery, 93 Bourke Street Woolloomooloo, until Wednesday 15th June 2011.

Modern Windows: Image Capture in the 21st Century – May 6-26.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Curated by William G. Saussay.

From the Camera Obscura in the 16th Century, to the miniscule High Definition video cameras inside iPhones, the mechanical and electronic capture of the four-dimensional world and its presentation onto two-dimensional surfaces has had major impacts on all spheres of human endeavour. In Modern Windows, local and international artists explore the image capture in unexpected and thought-provoking ways.
