Symbiont featuring Joel Ely and Brigid Vidler
Jeannie Avent Gallery.
7th -16th July 2023
PV Thursday 6th of July 6-8pm
Symbiont brings together Sculptures, Paintings and Prints from artist couple Brigid Vidler and Joel Ely. Symbiosis is the interaction between two organisms living in close physical association, typically, though not exclusively to the advantage of both. A state of symbiosis can have both positive and negative associations.
The work layers imagery, juxtaposing competing narratives to explore ideas of inter-connectivity and communication. Using humour the work draws on traditions of still life, figurative art and the surreal.
