A new work by Tomislav Nikolic ‘vestige of now, viii’ 2018. “By applying dozens or even hundreds of coats of paint it builds up a density and a body of colour. When you’re looking at what looks to be one solid colour, you’re actually not looking at the surface, you’re looking through hundreds of layers of paint.” - Tomislav Nikolic - #TomislavNikolic #STATIONmelbourne

Clare Milledge’s current exhibition, ‘Sacks of wind: a rock harder than rock’, previewed by Art Guide. “Milledge’s visual language slips between abstract painting and witchy mysticism; the connections between work and title often oblique. Is gazing at a painting and trying to divine its meaning really so different from reading entrails or casting bones?”. Link in bio. - #ClareMilledge #STATIONmelbourne @artguideau

STATION, Archive: Nell ‘Made in the Dark’ from September 2013. “Perhaps the defining gesture of the exhibition is that of a pair of wall mounted, monochrome panels that bookend the space in a kind of oppositional face-off, Made in the Dark’s other sculptures, paintings and forms punctuating the span between. On closer inspection, the monochromes are in fact grids of record sleeves. The Beatles’ White Album fills one wall, AC/DC’s Back in Black sleeves covers the other. It’s a material, formal and modal shift: the monochrome becomes the record, art history becomes rock muse and the economical and impersonal threatens to implode into the personal, winking, smirking nostalgia.” - Dan Rule, Raven Contemporary. - (images L-R: #Nellartist ‘Made in the Dark’ (installation view), ‘Let R.I.P’, ‘Made in the Dark’ (installation view), ‘Made in the Dark - bolt’ and ‘More Sound Hours Than Can Ever Be Repaid - Back in Black, #4’) #STATIONarchive #STATIONmelbourne

Recent work by David Griggs. Perhaps best known for his intense technicolour paintings, Griggs’ visual language is restless, rebellious and intuitively wrought. His symbolic conflation of the political and social imagery of his adopted home of Manila with that of his own personal autobiography creates a constellation of real and imagined spaces, that expose the sometimes unsettling underbellies of both place and persona. - (image: #DavidGriggs ‘Romantic Skull’ 2015) #STATIONmelbourne

‘Borrowed Time’, a solo exhibition of new and recent work by Laith McGregor opens tomorrow at Tweed Regional Gallery, NSW. For McGregor, time is both a subject matter for his work, as well being a tangible measure of the artist’s labour. Best known for his labour-intensive, biro portraits, in recent years his practice has expanded to include sculpture, video and print-making, and a range of subject matter. Opening Friday 5 October, the exhibition continues until 2 December. - (image: #LaithMcGregor ‘Tired Landscape’ (detail) 2018) #STATIONmelbourne @tweedregionalgallery
