DON'T TELL MUM
Tyson Evans, Dan Carmichael, Molly Strickland and Rachael Lonie from Black Dagger Tattoo
May 11 – June 8 2018
A group exhibition featuring the work of tattoo artists – Tyson Evans, Dan Carmichael, Molly Strickland and Rachael Lonie from Black Dagger Tattoo. Official opening party on Fri 18 May.
The appeal of the work included in this exhibition are the use of traditional techniques combined with contemporary subject matter. Contradicting the preconception of what a tattoo artist does, what to expect is sometimes the unexpected.
With works created on skateboards, canvas and paper, the artists showcase their individual technical expertise in watercolour, acrylic, pencil, oil paint and digital art that draw on popular culture. Practice, time and dedication are the tools they draw on the most, as they continue to learn through observation of their colleagues, other artists and the natural world around them.
Part of “Curated at Crow” an exhibition program and regional partnership between Crow Street Creative, Photopia Studio and emerging curator, Felicia Lloyd. Proudly supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), the program brings exhibitions, up late artist talks, professional development and networking opportunities for local artists and workshops to the Gladstone region.
