Landscapes and Manscapes: A Theatre of Activity
Both artists have been practising and exhibiting art since 1999. In sharing an interest in the built and natural environment; they’ve traveled, studied and produced art exploring different themes throughout their creative output.
In this exhibition they unite to present a tale of two environments with an overlap in the narrative. Both bring drama through ‘interventions’ using fact and fiction. It’s undeniable that current anxieties echo in the images, along with the story of time.
In Johnny’s ‘Manscapes’ to the ancient formations and erosions in Michelle’s landscapes. Both produce provocative images…, and time… humans unique knowledge and concept, ultimately begs the question, where will the future go?
Both artists will continue to explore changing landscapes…
