RYAN PRESLEY - CHAIN REACTION

 

May 2010

Ryan Renshaw Gallery Window Space

137 Warry St, Brisbane QLD 4006

 

As the second last installation in the window box of Ryan Renshaw Gallery and the follow on from Warm Glow, The Wandering Room have enlisted Ryan Presley to present a series of prints, which he has titled "Chain Reaction".

 

Presley's work addresses social injustices and reconfigures perceptions of Australian history. In his series, 'Blood Money', Presley reconstructed the notes in Australian Currency to depict Indigenous heroes like Oodgeroo Noonuccal and Dundalli, among others. In light of recent events in the media regarding preconceived notions of fairness in Australian Culture, Presley takes a wise sage move and chain gangs the issue head on.

 

We'd love to see you at the opening of this exhibition. Showing inside Ryan Renshaw will be the amazing collaborative artist pair Maschi Fontana, and James Dodd in the Project Space.

 

Ryan Presley is represented by Jan Manton Gallery, Brisbane.
