Charlie Drew - Different Minds and Other Creatures
Fri 01 Feb - Sun 24 Feb
LAUNCH: 6PM FRIDAY 8 FEBRUARY
Inspired by monsters, mythological beasts and extinct species, Charlie Drew reimagines and hybridises to create new creature forms.
Charlie’s creatures are both familiar and alien, not too monstrous or animal like, taking the ordinary and making it something new, and odd, without abandoning the realms of possibility.
These charcoal drawings provide a glimpse into the imaginings of a young artist whose mind works differently from most and whose outlook on the world is, itself, both ordinary and odd.
Charlie Drew was the recipient of the Tanks Curator’s Award at the Energy Exhibition 2018, winning him a solo exhibition, which he completed within just a few months of finishing year twelve.
The Tanks Curator’s Award is a project of the Year 13+ Program, designed to provide a bridging opportunity for young artists to be supported in the early stages of their practice.
LAUNCH: 6pm, Friday 8 February
OPEN: 9am – 4.30pm weekdays, 10am – 2.30pm weekends
