The next exhibition to reside in TWFINEART is Same Hero, New Boots by Jonni Cheatwood, and is set to takeover the gallery from Wednesday 28 February to Wednesday 4 April.
Cheatwood is a Los Angeles based, Brazilian-American artist who begun his painting career whilst studying secondary education and film & media production at Arizona State University. He describes his paintings as scumbags – an amalgamation of painterly marks and found objects applied to various fabrics such as canvas, denim and burlap, which are stitched together to create a collage. Older paitings are constantly revisited and reworked, destroyed and remade. Akin to the physicality of the works, Cheatwood intertwines techniques and ideologies from Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism an Conceptual art, resulting in work that feels both familiar, yet brand new.
In an Australian first, Cheatwood will be joining TWFINEART for the opening reception of the exhibition on Wednesday 28 February from 6–8PM. Not to be missed, get set to enjoy a live art performance by Cheatwood, jazz music and fashion by Calexico Man.
