FINAL DAYS

PODS, POM POMS AND OTHER SOUVENIRS | Elysia Byrd
PV: 13.5.16 6-10PM
14.5.16 – 27.5.16

On 13th May, Block 336 will present the first solo exhibition of works by resident studio artist Elysia Byrd. PODS, POM POMS AND OTHER SOUVENIRS will be held in the entrance gallery. Between the bamboo stalks and saccharine-coloured fluffy ‘tree tops’, glimpses of painted worlds can be caught. Byrd’s paintings accumulate icons that seem to be sucked out of this world and regurgitated in different formations. The ‘trees’ stand like guardians of this imagined forest space that is made up of various anthropomorphic totems. Glossy mounds sit plumply between the thin bamboo shoots. All of these objects are waiting to be collected, cut down or copied and transported to the local tourist market where they masquerade as genuine.
