Lazarus Rising - Exhibition by Apeseven

­­­­­Lazarus Rising

The latest solo exhibition for Sydney artist George Hambov aka: Apeseven.

 

‘Lazarus Rising’ is an emotive depiction of Apeseven’s journey over the last 18 months. After breaking his leg in a serious accident George had to learn how to walk on his left leg again. The title, also the name of his largest work in the show is a symbol of renewal after tragedy. Through injury, reconciliation and rehabilitation he brings this tapestry of landscape, symbolism and form; woven with notes of disconnect and rebirth. Often fragile and beautiful with an old world aesthetic that bewitches the observer.

 

Apeseven’s play on life and death is recognisable with his works having a comprehensive visual presence. Often challenging in nature, asking the observer to question relationships between form, time and space.

 

Over Apeseven’s 15 years long career he has exhibited in Australia, USA and Europe. His work found both on the street, in galleries and in numerous publications. Freehand aerosol and traditional brush techniques are evident with works primarily incorporating mixed media (acrylics, aerosol, inks, found paper and objects). Apeseven’s current works focus on complex bio-feedback driven loops involving a tapestry of pattern, animals and skeletal structures.

 

The show will launch at Future Artefacts Gallery, 30th November, 6pm till 9pm and open to view there after until the 4th December. New artist space and gallery in Alexandria, “Future Artefacts” founded by the team behind “The Nest Creative Space” and “The Offerings”.
