Mrs. Cardwell’s Ghost
14. February–15. March, 2023
Joint Exhibit by Joe Pascoe and John O’Neil
John O’Neil is nationally regarded photographer. John is represented in the National Gallery of Victoria, and has exhibited at the Australian Centre of Contemporary Art with panoramas of post bush fire landscapes.
The selection for Cardwell Gallery includes a little-shown small goods shops series. Again exploring the idea of profound transformation in his artwork, echoing a passion in his own life for understanding the cycle of existence.
Joe Pascoe is a poet who uses collage to create social symbols. It is surrealism in the dada sense, offering a torn ticket to another reality. This selection riffs on the history of Cardwell Gallery as a former, popular lolly shop.
This event is free of charge. Please RSVP at Eventbrite.
