An exhibition of new paintings by BEASTMAN
The seeming dominance over our world is illusory and ephemeral. We consider ourselves masters of all creation, but as a species, humanity is insignificant on a cosmic scale, our limited perceptions allow us to only see a fraction of reality. ‘Cosmic Nature’ is a refreshing new series of paintings by Sydney based artist Beastman that explores the futuristic and overwhelming idea of nature coming to life in a way we could have never imagined. A new colour palette and further development of his distinctive style, reflects the different elements of our young world, organic lines and the often symmetrical geometric patterns found in nature. Whatever meaning or purpose may or may not be invested in these paintings, the deities featured in his ambitious new works are a representation of what lies beyond the boundaries of our imagination, when the cosmic forces of nature eventually reveal the irrelevance of humanity in the universe.
This exhibition also acts as a launch for Beastman’s first publication. ‘Suburban Nature’ is a limited edition 60 page zine featuring street art, murals and collaborations created by the artist over 2 years throughout 10 different countries, documenting the journey and development of the artist’s distinct style.
