  • Venue:JahRoc Galleries

  • Hosted By:JahRoc Galleries
  • Art Exhibitions:Painting

Description

"What have our lives become? The new guiding principal, the internet of things, has whipped up a frenzied world of emotionally charged lunatic ideas through indignant holograms and magic tricks mostly delivered via social media, streaming into our pockets or handbags every minute of the day and night with our permission – attacking our sanity and concentration not unlike water torture … drip, drip. It’s getting harder to dodge the nonsense of these unreal robotic times, with all the panic and chaos it can create through ‘thin air’ so quickly, but if you turn it off it just stops!. Being recalcitrant and earthy, and living a sensual life is important in the face of the current nonsense that has gripped the world. Eat well, walk, run, love, laugh, paint, write, kiss dogs on the face, sleep with your cat, read real paper books, grow vegies and chooks, eat meat if you want, and burn wood in a fire place, with your phone turned off, inserted in a zip lock bag, buried deep in the freezer." Helen Norton 2021 For more details and to view the exhibition online visit: https://www.jahroc.com.au/ JahRoc Galleries is open daily 10am-5pm.

Saturday 5th June opening at 5pm-7pm
