APAK – Underwater Picnic June 17 2019
Outré Gallery Fitzroy
18 – 30 October 2019
APAK Studio is a collaborative project between Aaron Piland and Ayumi Kajikawa. They create artwork together as a way exploring the beauty, mystery, and magic of life. Apak paint rich and colorful gouache/acrylic artworks on wood featuring the utopian lives and adventures of curious little beings living harmoniously in lush fantastic environments surrounded by friendly little animals.
Underwater Picnic is a theme that Aaron came up with. It comes from that story of the fish who can't appreciate water/life until they are removed from it. So it's a celebration of life and an appreciation of the flow of life that surrounds us at all times, even when we don’t notice it.
