PRETTY/UGLY :: an exhibition by Shaylee Leach & Daria Healy-Kolianin

Thursday 14th July :: 6pm - 8pm
All welcome :: Drinks provided

Two young emerging artists present ‘PRETTY/UGLY’ a collection of their individual work that explores the beautiful and the grotesque that sometimes plays with a strange crossover between the two.

These works clash and captivate: Smutty hybrid lady creatures, blood, gore and hardcore kids, zombie dogs, wicked grins, sleazy animals and monsters all piled into; watercolour drawings with a street art inspired aesthetic. Grinding against photographs that capture youthful innocence and collide with lust and rich sensuality which challenging notions of safety and youth sexuality.

Daria and Shaylee are two 19 year old emerging artists from regional areas, that have recently moved to Adelaide to start their first year studying Visual art at UniSA. Daria has been a part of White Cube Mildura, Mildura Backlane festival 2011 and Sketchbook project. Shaylee is a 2011 JUMP artist, being mentored by Deborah Paauwe, she has also recently been commissioned to create works for the Rundle Street Lantern by CountryArts SA & SALA moving image project.
