an exploration of the duality between the conscious and the unconscious
Melbourne-based abstract artist v?, best known for her captivating art videos on social media, is set to unveil her debut exhibition “Dreamscapes” at fortyfivedownstairs gallery on Flinders Lane, beginning with the opening night on 2 January and closing on the 10 February. With an enthralling blend of vibrant colours and dreamlike patterns, the 23-year-old artist’s latest collection offers visitors an immersive experience that blurs the boundaries between consciousness and the dream realm. “Much like a dream, my artwork is an exploration of the duality between the conscious and the unconscious” explains v?.
The exhibition boasts a curated collection of acrylic abstract art on canvas that will be available for purchase. Each piece is a testament to v?’s intuitive style and unique palette. Beyond mere aesthetics, these works are portals into the mind’s unseen landscapes — realms of deep introspection and boundless imagination.
Special events punctuate the exhibition, including:
