Jae Copp's Parallelogram Exhibition

Art, Exhibits, Illustration, Print

It has been close to five years between artist Jae Copp's last solo exhibition, picking up right where he left off we're over the moon to see him exhibiting a series of distinctive new works at the RVCA Corner Gallery in Melbourne.

Paralleloland opened early April and runs for just over a month until May 7. The work is described by Copp as a 'lost collection of cosmic maps and artefacts from the atlas of imagination'. He has long used allegories and abstract twists to take personal and social views out of context, into a surreal, and at times almost semi-nonsensical way using an array of medium including paper treatments, hand stitching, embossing and sculptural elements rendered with meticulous brush-based illustration.

Through the series he clumsily explores and appropriates the theory of parallel universes and time travel by providing his shape-shifting figures with new found maps and artefacts to guide them through the universe as they continue to mimic learnings of a bygone era. With these new found tools they are able to navigate through time and space in a relentless quest for both, social and planetary harmony.

EXHIBITION RUNS FROM NOW UNTIL SATURDAY, MAY 7th.
