Running with Scissors by Gavin Brown

Aren’t these collages constructed from paste, paper and paint by Melbourne artist Gavin Brown transfixing? They are part of his ‘Running with Scissors’ series recently exhibited at Rtist gallery. Known predominantly as a painter Gavin explains that “collage has long been the basis for most of my work and I tend to derive my source material from advertising and popular culture media”. As such you might spy Lily Cole as Hypnos, the god of slumber according to Grecian mythology, or the seductive gaze of Kate Moss transformed into Gavin’s version of the goddess of persuasion and charm. I’m pretty charmed by all of the jewel, fauna and colour-laden pieces.

Get in touch with Sarah at Rtist Agency if you fancy buying a print of one (or a few) of the 20 works in this gorgeously surreal series.
