Christopher Doyle's Litany to Launch This Friday

Christopher Doyle’s Litany to Launch This Friday

| On 24, Apr 2017

Ever had a burning need to go to a snazzy art gallery on a Friday night? Well now here’s your chance.

The Culprit club, in Winn Lane Fortitude Valley, is bringing to their “pocket-sized” gallery an all new exhibition of the work of local Christopher Doyle. Launching this Friday and featuring works of silkscreen and wood block prints, Litany will be bringing Brisbanites a taste of this ancient art and explore “the notions of image authority and mediated experiences.” In a bid to showcase traditional art techniques, Chris’ work is a project born of his current residency as an in-house artist at the ‘Club.  As to what gallery goers should expect from his exhibition, he says

“People coming to the exhibition should expect to see a variety of alternative and traditional printmaking techniques from lithography, wood cuts and photo polymer. The exhibition brings together work from the last 12 months that explore themes of image dissemination and the impact the printmaking and the ability to reproduce images has on western culture. The work draws from contemporary media images and western art history to create statements and commentary on news media, politics and society.”

“I opted to do the residency at the Culprit Club as well as the exhibition to give an insight into the technicality and the simplicity of traditional printmaking. The process of printmaking being what gives my work its fundamental context. I’m hoping Litany will introduce traditional printmaking to an audience that had not previously been aware of the medium…overall I’m anticipating viewers to be curious about the processes involved in the image making and maybe, hopefully, its history.”
