Lost Nomad | RE-VOLITION

A few weeks ago Ralf and I spent the afternoon with my dear friend and Sydney based Artist Gawaa, creating archival photographs of his work for the Newtown ArtSeat. We also captured reproductions for the May edition of Art Almanac and promotional images for his solo exhibition RE-VOLITION, opening next week.

A comment was made on facebook yesterday about about Gawaa’s Newtown Art Seat installation which caught my eye:

“Stopped by last night and had a good time viewing this. I loved the actual brush work on canvas instead of printed on paper. So powerful”

Why am I so excited about this comment? The artwork comprises of photographs and prints of Gawaa’s paintings. Our aim was to seamlessly represent his work as it should be seen in its original form. It just goes to show the importance of getting professionals to accurately document artwork for reproduction!

RE-VOLITION: THE ART OF NAVIGATING CULTURAL COLLISION IN THE INFORMATION AGE
A decade after leaving the Mongolian desert home where timeless nomadic traditions defined by connection to earth and family were his touchstone, Sydney artist Ganbold Gawaa Lundaa’s vision remains firmly rooted in the many complex cultural collisions he’s experienced since plunging head first into Sydney’s urban concrete jungle. Lundaa’s upcoming exhibition RE-VOLITION opens 5 May at Chrissie Cotter Gallery in Camperdown, promising a pop art infused meditation on the complex nexus between Gen Wi Fi’s high tech hipster sensibility and those more arcane cultural traditions which forged his own creative and socio political vision.

RE-VOLITION runs 5 – 15 May at Chrissie Cotter Gallery, 2 Pidcock St, Camperdown NSW.

See you at Gawaa’s show!
