Beautiful Strange! By Craig Poore and ADi

OPENING RECEPTION
FRIDAY 6 AUGUST 2010 6-9 PM

EXHIBITION RUNS TILL 19 AUGUST

In their upcoming show "Beautiful Strange', artists Craig Poore and ADi
examine the beautiful as strange and the strange as beautiful. Our thoughts
of the visual world are blurred by our perceptions. 'Beautiful Strange'
invites us to challenge these ideas.

Through his emotive and engaging oil paintings, Craig Poore captures the
startling 'beauty' found within the female form.
The narrative is alluring, dreamy and at times melancholic. Clown fish
appear from the tangled trestles of an underwater goddess, the heart's
despair from a girl's deep and longing stare.

In contrast, ADi invents opposing ideas of beauty with his imaginative and
hypnotic illustrative style. He embraces the uniquely 'strange' by creating
a world enchanted by mystery. The imagery is unexpected, intriguing and
symbolic and the technique executed with exacting precision.
