Go Go Gocco Go!

Geometric Spell, Beci Orpin.

An exhibition of works created with a super nifty, lo-fi, Japanese printing process, Gocco! Gocco uses flash bulbs to imprint a design onto a screen template, inks are poured in and prints are created.

This is a spin-off of a group show being held at Outré Gallery. Between 23 September and 12 October we will be showcasing the Gocco prints of Beci Orpin, Creepy, Sean Morris, Gemma Jones, Miso, Cat Rabbit and Mel Stringer.

The Sweat Descends, Sean Morris.

Head to Outré for even more Gocco fun!

We have also produced a limited edition tee shirt for the occasion, featuring the artwork that local artist Kyle Hughes-Odgers, aka Creepy, did for the show. This is printed in black, water-based ink, onto grey marle, American Apparel, tri-blend tees. They are $59 and are available at Ruck Rover General Store and Outré's Perth gallery, 260 William Street, Northbridge. The tees are available in both men's and women's fits and are a limited edition run of 200 tees total.

Ali J

Ali J is an artist/illustrator whose work is whimsical, dreamy and invokes the imagination. Her characters are modern, fashionable and often feature red rosy cheeks. Each character has a unique personality and style that often reminds others of someone they know.

I close my eyes and can still hear the music, $160

Ali J believes that everyone should be able to own her artwork and access it outside of a gallery. This leads her artworks to be presented in a variety of formats and reproduced onto various products including prints, greeting cards, pocket mirrors and jewellery.

Tea for Two, $120

Her art has been exhibited worldwide and she has created work for clients such as Peppermint Magazine, Sony/BMG, Oxford University Press and the Australian Copyright Council. She is currently illustrating her first book, a recipe book, slated for release in May 2012.

I'm ready can't you see, $160

Wilderness is a series of artworks revolving around the idea of the modern world co-existing with the woodlands that exist in the artist's dreams. Inspired by The Wishing Chair series by Enid Blyton, the artworks consist of a series of portraits of characters that live within a world equally inhabited by human and animals.
