Anger Management and the importance of personal hygiene at Nishi

By johnboy - 24 September 2013 24


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.

I suspect the media release wss indeed written by the artist. In university one of my besties was an art student who dreaded having to make up some waffly crap about her mix-media paintings or installations. She was a visual thinker expressing herself as best she could. Any words she made up after the event were guaranteed to be less accurate than the work itself and yet they constituted a significant portion of her mark.

All artists are capable of churning out pages of this crap but they do need help editing it down.

You know there are programs out there that given a few keywords can churn out pages of crap on demand. Some have even been accepted as conference papers, eg

I don’t know what you lot are on about.
My sentence contains no errors of tense and parses perfectly well.
Which bit(s) are you having trouble with?

Sorry…I didn’t mean to piss you off. I have no idea whether you were confused or conflating anything. I was using “may” in the sense of “you (the reader) may think that if you wish”. My point is that I understood perfectly what you were on about, whereas the blurb was pretty much content free.

Any other “Private Eye” fans on here?

Yep. I think you’ve nailed it there Ben.

Well I’ve submitted it to Private Eye Magazine for their ‘Psueds Corner” section.

I have a subscription to Private Eye, I will let you know if it’s published.

Looks worth a visit. Thanks for posting about this.

I’d also suggest that looking for well-wrought prose in a press release is perhaps even more futile than correcting spelling on the internet.
