Colour & Cacophony by Pollu Hollyoak
(30 Apr - 15 May 2015 at Off the Kerb, Melbourne, Australia)
Straddling the boundaries between abstraction and representational forms, my work explores, colour, pattern and layering through the medium of painting. Borrowing freely from media imagery in our consumer culture it explores notions of consumption and desire by highlighting the volume and cacophony of imagery to which we are incessantly exposed. Through cropping, juxtaposition and layering images are transformed, and the distinction between what is real and what is representational dissolves away.
