NICK STATHOPOULOS
Anthropocene - found objects from a lost civilisation

See the work - scroll right >>

"There is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness" - Edgar Allen Poe.

Anthropocene - found objects from a lost civilisation, is an exhibition of paintings and sculptures by four times Archibald finalist Nick Stathopoulos at NG Art Gallery Chippendale. This show marks a new direction in his hyper-realistic painting. Anthropcene refers to a loosely defined chronological term where the impact of human activity on the environment can be detected in the geological strata.

 

Although there are elements of his previous toy obsessions and with pop culture in general, this new body of work transitions to a strange new world, where bizarre skeletal constructs float like clouds, ancient public works haunt desolate landscapes, surreal and inexplicable sculptures resemble primitive alien totems. These creations emerge from the artist's subconscious to challenge, confound, and delight.


"I have hundreds of drawings of these 'things' in my sketchbooks. I think it's time I unleashed them on the art world" Nick mused from his cluttered studio. This new body of work could be viewed as a treasure trove of objects and images from some future archaeological dig - and perhaps the gallery could be a museum from that distant future. Whimsical, haunting, enigmatic, or just plain weird, these are works that defy convention, and NG Art Gallery now invites you to join Nick on this mysterious journey.

 

Opening reception for Anthropocene will be held on Wednesday the1st October at NG Art Gallery in Chippendale.
