Wallwork Studios is proud to announce its first show in its dynamic 2011 program, iWood, an exhibition of new works by local emerging artist Rick Beresford

iWood, Ricks first solo exhibition, is a stunning exploration of the use of natural wood grains and knots as a catalyst for creating surreal landscapes and abstract patterning.

Beginning with no pre conceived beginnings other than the surface itself, his highly evocative works are often reminiscent of other worldly cityscapes that have been merged, twisted and hybridized with feminine forms and layered with sexual undertones.

I find the process stimulating and creatively challenging, there is a continuing pattern of female form and often sexual based images emerging. This repetition has led me to question why these types of images are reoccurring in my work and what role the raw material and/or my subconscious plays in the process?

The exhibition will feature a many new works, including drawings, paintings and a limited edition series of lino prints and etchings. Rick is currently completing his Honours at James Cook University in Creative Industries, is also a school teacher at the Yarrabah Secondary School Campus and is one of the emerging artists selected to create public artworks for Cairns Regional Councils ‘Changing Lanes’ festival, due to be opened in May 2011.

The show opens at 6:00pm and will be open till late, there will be a bar-by-donation and finger food. Wallwork Studios opens to the public, 6pm till late, Friday, 8th April at 6 Hobbler St Westcourt, All are welcome.
