Poetry in Colours : MABO

Poetry in Colours by MABO
Dennis Tourbin Members Gallery at NAC
Opening Reception Saturday 6 July 7PM

Known for his non-conceptual style, displays 20 of his recent original mixed media paintings, collectively entitled  Poetry in Colours. ​

MABO (Matthias Bork), born and educated in Germany, is descended from a family of artists as far back as 1850. A professionally trained baker, pastry chef, chocolatier and food stylist. MABO’s style may be loosely described as Abstract Expressionism, but its fluidity allows for soupçons of surrealism, pointillism and action painting, using a great spectrum of assorted media. ​Matthias Bork’s style is readily recognizable, with a distinct “MABO” identity.

Body of Work : A Group Show

A Group Show

This show is an apparatus for conceptualizing ideas about the female body and gendered notions of femininity in social spaces. The work adds to the canon the manner in which female artists take ownership over their societal representation. The show will provide a multifaceted and multi-generational depiction of the “female” experience whilst playing with the absurdity that there is still so much missing from global conversations about the politics of femininity. The female body is the political subject at the centre of this exhibition, with bodily expression through the poetics of the visual. How is the body central to our experience? Are we our bodies or do we watch our bodies navigate social space? What is the mind/body divide in relation to a “female experience”? Can we even speak of an essential female experience?
