The gallery space at the Aarwun Gallery at Federation Square in Nichols in the ACT is almost lit up by the remarkable work of Johnny Romeo. A quote from the blurb on the web page for this exhibition will explain what is on show.
“Romeo’s imaginative fusion of sci-fi Surrealism, Cubist abstraction and quirky appropriations of celebrity imagery ruptures our understanding of Pop culture icons and filters them through his distinctive Kitsch Pop lens. Bursting at the seams with vibrant colour explosions, larger-than-life Pop imagery, and gleefully absurdist humour, Colossal Youth is an electrifying dive into the warped Technicolour visions of Australia’s King of Pop. “
If you click on the exhibition sales page below you will see thumbnails of 16 of his works available through Aarwun Gallery. In the gallery they are explosive in their vrbrant colour and semi familiar imagery. The exhibition is on till Sunday December 5.
