Last week Thursday was the opening of Tim Andrews solo exhibition Big Deal at The Gaffa.
The exhibition was astonishing, when walking through there was wallpaper covering the middle with some paintings around it and in the middle of the room was two statues which were quite morbidly beautiful which were both functioning with blood coloured water coming out of the ends of the arms. The rest of the exhibition was paintings and prints which were equally amazing.
Here are some pics from the exhibition.

FOUR was an exhibition featuring some of Sydney’s most collectible young painters, Rebecca Murphy, Adrian Baiada, Jenny Cuthbert and West.
When walking in there was a sculpture hanging from the ceiling which was constructed from mixed media including string and wood.
The place was packed full of people all looking curiously at the artwork while having a bite of chicken or grabbing a biscuit and dip or jelly beans and of-course a beer or wine.
The art at the exhibition was amazing and the amount of new artworks by Rebecca Murphy was astonishing including her morbid look at care bears and her paintings on glass bottles. Wests work was quite original using stencils on textiles which were on a canvas and a few illustrations. Jenny Cuthberts works were kind of interesting showing the dark sides of society and Adrian Baiada who painted portraits of people.
The event runs until 18th of February at Monstrosity Gallery 93 Bourke St Woolloomooloo, would highly recommend going there to check it out.
This exhibition was marking the last exhibitions for the absolut Stairwell Gallery series.
This exhibition had such artists as Stef Mitchell, HOBO, JUMBO, Cara Stricker, BENNETT, Lisa Zhu, Shannon Crees, The Movement, Pedestrian, COFA, The IT Collective and Arnie Arnold.
Walking up the stairs there is a vast amount of paste ups all over the walls and around the paste ups were frames in which the artworks were hung. People walking past got to bid on the artworks and the person whos artwork that got the most at the end of the night got all funds for there own solo exhibition.
Here are some pics from the night.
