ONLINE CATALOGUE

Melbourne Collage Now is a survey of contemporary collage by members of the Melbourne Collage Assembly, a group of artists who predominantly work with collage and assemblage. From Picasso to Rosenquist to the DIY album art of Punk icons, collage’s influence has been present in many Twentieth Century art movements and subcultures. Yet despite its use from Cubism to Post Modernism, it remains a subversive art form often overlooked. 
These artists source materials through a process of chance discovery and the obsessive collecting of print ephemera.  Working with mainly analog techniques they each apply different approaches collage, providing a unique insight into contemporary collage and the possibilities of the medium.

TASTE OF COLOUR
by Carlos Cui

“Taste of Colour” is a new collection of paintings depicting my love of food. I try to capture the colours, textures and freshness of these favourite foods into my artwork, as a result, my process becomes more like cooking instead of painting. I represent different food together, illustrating sweet, sour, crispy and chewy; colour then morphs into taste. I invite the viewer to enjoy the delicious taste of my work.

IN THE BEGINNING
by Kara Mandel

***SHOW POSTPONED***
due to COVID-19 mandatory self isolation
from overseas travel

Message from the artist, Kara Mandel:

The last couple days have unfolded in surprising ways. Having this morning returned from overseas, I’m in a position that many friends are finding themselves in and will not be able to go ahead with the exhibition opening this Friday as planned. I am in good health but at this point, it doesn’t feel in the interest of community to move forward with the show. I’m grateful that Off the Kerb Gallery has been compassionate and understanding and hope that we will have news about alternative dates in the future. Sending my love to all, especially any who are immune-compromised, without stable employment, or living with conditions that compound the experience of COVID-19. Let’s take the next couple weeks to support and raise each other up, even if some of us can not be in physical contact with one another.

THE END
by Suki & Lobster Juice

Artists Suki and Lobster Juice explore the theme of endings. Suki delves into heartbreak and the idea that sometimes a new beginning is better than a happy ending. Lobster Juice blends in dark humour regarding the problems the world and society face. Whatever happened to the good old days full of sunshine and the innocent laughter of children? The world now burns and the children have anxiety. So sit back, relax and pop a Valium. This is The End.
