4 February — 28 February 2015

Alice Oehr (AUS), Ana Serrano (USA), Beci Orpin (AUS), Cody Hudson (USA), Kim Jaeger AKA Potheads (AUS), Maryanne Moodie (AUS/USA), Michele Lockwood (USA/AUS), Mogu Takahashi (JAP) and Tim Lahan (USA). Curated by Beci Orpin.

Lamington Drive is pleased to present our first show for the year, Beyond Beyond, a group exhibition curated by Beci Orpin. Beyond Beyond features nine artists, designers and makers from around the world. Each have illustrative qualities to their work yet take their practice beyond the bounds of illustration and into other dimensions.

Beyond Beyond brings together a diverse collection of practitioners, working in a range of mediums including weaving, soft-sculpture ceramics and laser-cut wood. The show also marks the Australian debut for a number of the featured international artists.

For Orpin, who personally describes herself as “a designer that has exhibitions”, she struggles calling the pieces she makes for shows “artworks”. Orpin feels that it is often hard to find a place for this kind of work – not high end art, not low-brow either, but its own genre yet to be defined, falling somewhere between art, design, new craft and illustration.

Lamington Drive, which exists to simultaneously explore the idea of showcasing commercial artists in a traditional gallery space and as a venue in which illustrators and designers can explore this same art/commercial art tension in their practices, provides the perfect place to house this eclectic collection.

Join us on opening night, Wednesday February 4, from 6-9pm.

Exhibition continues until February 28.
