Anger Management and the importance of personal hygiene at Nishi

By johnboy - 24 September 2013 24

poster

ArtsACT has the delightful news that the amazing George Rose is putting on her first exhibition at Nishi:

Anger Management and The Importance of Personal Hygiene is George Rose’s first solo exhibition. The works presented deal with idea’s surrounding expression vs interpretation and the notion of the creation of art aiding in the mental digestion of concepts, which are difficult to process.

This body of work has been created as a means of comprehending and expressing events in the artists life. It is the result of cathartic exploration and is heavily process driven. The outcome may be evident of an expressive process rather than a creative process.

Whilst the works presented are personal in nature, it is the artist’s intention that the art produced is accessible and that the audience is able to connect with her motivations.

George enjoys using juxtaposing cues mixed with commonly understood concepts to create inconsistent visual information. The intention is for the audience to engage in the works with their own intuition.

George aims to create art that engages, moves and finds humour in unlikely places, using a visual vocabulary as opposed to written or oral text.

The mediums in the show vary from oil paintings, interactive light sculptures, video installations, ceramics and hand crafted type works. Each piece has been created using a visual vocabulary appropriate to the intended outcome.

Take that Turner bloke who had an exhibition in Canberra recently – his work was described (by Sally Prior) as:
“…moody landscapes and vivid oils…”

Whereas this work is described as:
“…juxtaposing cues mixed with commonly understood concepts to create inconsistent visual information.”

etc…bleurgh

Spot the sentence that means something.

Hmm, let’s see, one functions as a review written by an art critic, the other is a press release not even necessarily written by the artist. Forgive me for pointing out the flaming obvious here, but a presser is meant to intrigue in the same way that a menu spruiking “avocado mousse” is meant to intrigue… it’s not a point-by-point breakdown of preparation technique and plated reality… it’s a broadly appealing amalgam of industry terms. It suggests that what you get is an unknown quantity – so that’s why you go. A review will always tell you what to expect in more precise terms – but this isn’t a review.

And as for writing that displays competence, this sentence displays none of that: “What I get from that is that you have no objection to writing that appears neither competent nor even designed to communicate any meaning.” Verb confusion. Conflated tenses. You really are a scholar, as I said.

OK. The headline is one of the most interesting I’ve ever seen on RA, and I’ve been hanging around here for a few years now. I had no clue what I was getting in to when I came to this thread.

The artwork looks very interesting. I really, really like that rabbit, and I may go along to the exhibition, based on that image alone. George, if that is actually a woman’s name, seems to have some talent, and that should be supported.

But on the words, I’m with Robinson. He may be confused and he may be tense and he may be conflating his sh*t all over the place, but I know what he meant and I agree with him. I treasure precise written expression, and I can deal with imprecise expression that gets the point across, but that gibberish in the blurb is gibberish, and it deserves a damn good bagging.

I sense a meme coming on! I hope nobody sees me as lacking in tack for mentioning this. 🙂

The fact that RiotACT endorses mockery of The Stupid is one of the main reasons I read this site.

Hey Martlark, your understanding of alliteration is second-to-none. It really helps convey that holier-than-thou attitude. And Robertson, I’m sure people in your life have already correctly pointed out how cruel and maladjusted you must be to conjure up the nastiest words you know and arrange them in the most toxic way you can on internet forums. Why, with that lovely maniacal laughter, you’re practically a prince and a scholar!

Both of you could benefit from practising a little more ‘Anger Management’. You didn’t comment on the artwork pictured or what it hopes to achieve; you simply set out to belittle and sneer. That’s pointlessly cruel and petty-minded. This is about a young artist preparing for her first solo show. What makes you think that’s acceptable to get so annoyed by a misplaced apostrophe or two that you abuse her?

“…This body of work has been created as a means of comprehending and expressing events in the artists life. It is the result of cathartic exploration and is heavily process driven. The outcome may be evident of an expressive process rather than a creative process….”

What is it meant to achieve? I don’t know if the artist is educating me or sneering at my low tastes or what? And, .. why should I care about some artist’s life that I’ve never heard of?

“The mediums in the show vary”

Hahahahahahahaha. Media?

As for actual meaning….the first paragraph is complete gibberish. The rest doesn’t improve much.

Whoever wrote this garbage is a ^#%$ing idiot.

Bit harsh Robertson. It was funny on the other thread because everyone was doing it, but here you’re just being a snob. Don’t get me wrong, I’m as annoyed at how sloppy our writing has collectively become as you are, but I’ll make one observation: apparently these days the word “mediums” is taught as a plural of medium, because “the media” has other connotations. Despite deviating from the Latin plural, I think the word “mediums” has value and cromulence, and has a distinct meaning from “media” if you will accept the non-standard plural form.

Also, the art looks great.
