Blue Moons @ Ma. Gallery

Ma. Gallery was host to 4 Sydney and Melbourne based artists on this Wednesday night. Blue moons was a nice little group show from Leon Hawker, A. West, William-Guillaume Saussay and Phil Soliman.

A. West’s collection featured an abundance of fluffy faux fur splattered with enamel paints, they were just begging to be touched. There’s something about faux fur that is so nasty, yet irresistible. Much to our delight, the artist’s statement encouraged us to get up close and give the ol’ art a stroke.

The highlight was the beautiful collages by Leon Hawker. His paper cuts must be extreme as a result of the thousands of pieces he delicately cut and pasted on huge sheets.

An enormous tangle of beer bottle caps, each one cut individually. Amazing in it’s composition, but also a testament to the patience of the artist!

William-Guillaume Saussay’s bright and bold works occupied a corner space and were a delight.

Finally, Phil Soliman’s collection of photographs and video rounded off what was an amazingly diverse show. A wonderful example of how more group shows should be curated, a little of something to please everyone.
