Heavily influenced by the discipline of modernism, pattern & textile design of the mid century, Kelly O'Sullivan creates work that is made up of clean and simple shapes based from a grid system. Her work symbolises her relationships with everyday forms, expressing emotion, reflecting experiences and surroundings through the use geometry, colour, pattern, line and repetition.  

In the body of work for 'Gridlines' Kelly further explores the creation of abstract form through the use of a simple grid system. Kelly says "It's about carving out an abstract form from a simple grid that were originally inspired by form and lines in the natural environment and urban architecture"

Sam Octigan

EXHIBITING IN THE SMALL WALL PROJECT
OUTRÉ GALLERY MELBOURNE
MAY 12 - MAY 21

Website: here  Instagram: here

Sam Octigan is a visual artist based in Melbourne, Australia. His practice typically centres with painting on canvas, exploring the intersection of narrative and abstract form. Endlessly fascinated from a young age with the visual image and how we as humans connect to it, his current work seeks to delve deeper into the alchemy of what makes an arresting image to an audience, while exploring his own personal interests in memory, history, growth, home and truth.

His upcoming show at Outré Gallery on May 12 is titled 'Ecdysis'. Ecdysis is the process of shedding skin or malting fur or feathers in animals. Sam parallels this process in the evolution of an animal with that of a human; shedding the old to make way for the new. Exploring a human’s need to shed beliefs as opposed to shedding old skin.
