Gretchen Kaye

The Portable Park

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

“Meet Me Under the Clocks”

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Marco Luccio

CUOROSENSA: A Reverse Archaeology

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

In Cuorosensa, the artist’s bold, energetic and confident mark-making coheres into recognisable Luccio-esque themes — we see his Eiffel Tower, his Trojan Horse, his meditations on the myths and figures of classical antiquity — but closer inspection reveals a canvas of interlocking postcards with tantalising glimpses of the messages they once conveyed.

Orison

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

In relating closely to the term ‘Barocco’ meaning disfigured or oddly shaped pearl, the artist feels that so long as we are living, mortal beings, the openings to inspire us closer into who we are, may require the light’s counterpart of darkness to never desist.
