Kick Gallery presents, Rock, Paper, Lasers

Troy Innocent, Jeff Janet, Trinh Vu and Joel Zika have used the latest digital laser cutting technology to create paper artworks and sculptures for the ‘Rock, Paper, Lasers’ exhibition that started yesterday at the Kick Gallery in Northcote. The Exhibition Opening however is tomorrow night (Friday).

Laser cutting is one of those things I would love to have a go at one day but for now I’ll stick to my current mediums and admire those that do. Which is why next time I’m in Northcote over the next few weeks I’ll swing by the Kick Gallery and check out this exhibition.

‘One of the intentions of the artists in this exhibition is to deride the mass production of iconography - such as that which is so often seen in ‘homewares’ or ‘lifestyle’ shops - and make a series of more unique works. Other works in the show are intended to exemplify the possibilities of these tools for the creation of contemporary art. While these artists cast a light on the facelessness of the prefabricated object, at the same time, they choose to revel in the machine’s benefits for more unique creative purposes rather than running from them.’ - Kick Gallery
