Whitecliffe graduate and lecturer Matt Dowman is exhibiting new large-scale works at the Tauranga Art Gallery. The exhibition entitled A Brighter Future is on view until 17 April.
Dowman "has created a vibrant site-specific environment that you become immersed in as you enter the space. Utilising the visual language of street art, comic book illustration and formal abstraction, Dowman investigates surface texture, colour and repetition in this impressive installation. A Brighter Future uses mixed media (including house paint and marker pen) to describe a cacophony of characters that many visitors will recognise from popular media including cartoons, movies and comics."
