‘Closer’ an exhibition by Cooper Pinch

Cooper Pinch is a visual artist practicing in the western suburbs of Adelaide. Beginning as a self-taught graffiti artist, his practice now encompasses a variety of media, including acrylic and aerosol painting, mural, furniture and textile work. Cooper’s work focuses on visually imposing shapes and ideas that draw influence from the realm of the psychedelic, as well as 80s and 90s pop. 

Cooper is set to present an arrangement of his latest works, as he explores an array of statement shapes and techniques which have become a staple in his work over the past year. 

‘Closer’ runs from November 8th until December 2nd

Forest Paintings BY: Nina Rantanen

This latest body of work is response to living in a more natural environment in the Adelaide Hills. I look out of every window onto massive trees now instead of other houses as I did before in the City. My love of architecture hasn’t gone, it’s just been overlayed into trying to represent these beautiful trees in any way I can. And bugs. As a Greener Cleaner I’m interested in “good bugs” and as a human concerned with climate change, thoughts about ancient phytoplankton in fossil fuels have also crept into the pieces as influences. The paintings are about life cycles and energy, deforestation and choice. The pod shapes come from being a seedling grower for Trees for Life for many years. It amazes me how much energy and life can come from one tiny seed.

These are all experiments (maybe just like us!) and I hope you enjoy looking at them.

Nina.
