Freshly Baked is at it again with 'Each to their Own' an exhibition that can be both viewed in the physical space of a gallery situation or online at their website. This time round they bring to you in your choice of format seven of Australia’s contemporary art forerunners; stencil artists Regan “Ha-Ha” Tamanui and Miss Link, Melbourne-based Paris Tremayne, Perth’s Matt Benson-Parry, Sydeny based Ears who is an artist I’ve had the pleasure of seeing develop in leaps and bounds over the past 2-3 years, Jae Copp and Johnny Romeo.
Without playing favorites too much I’m personally excited about seeing fresh new works by Ears, I went along to one of his recent exhibitions in Melbourne and loved every single piece that he had on display.
On first glimpse of his works it does look a little bit like style of several other talented people, but there is something a little dark, a little personal, a little honest and a little unique about his characters and their backdrops that makes my jaw drop everytime I see something new by Ears.
Should you plan to go along to the opening or check out the exhibition in the flesh you’ll be delighted to know that the1000 £ Bend warehouse was once a Harley Davidson factory; and has since been revitalised into an industrial space, which will be the perfect setting for this contemporary exhibition.
For those unable to see the works in such a unique space you can cozy up in your favorite chair with your lap top and a glass of wine (or bottle) in hand and make your way through Freshly Baked online gallery. It offers a cutting-edge, virtual gallery experience where users can navigate a 3D gallery and safely purchase the artwork too, though you do get to miss putting to little red dot on your painting experience.
