ART EXHIBITION: David C Boyle- "Intriguing Entities" Peter Marment- "Urban Decomposition"

WHERE: ROAR! gallery, 22 Vivian St, Wellington

WHEN: 24th February- 20th March

David C Boyle- "Intriguing Entities"

David predominantly works in oil with the main objective being to create works with an escapist and humorous outlook. He states, "I use surrealism and colour to inspire."

David's comment on his Bolted Books; "These books are bolted shut for censorship and political correctness! Some are bolted forever to preserve themes and memories we hold dear. A few are very firmly closed because they are exquisitely awful and dreadfully diabolical. Young "Screenagers" have bolted shut these treasures for love of electronic stimuli. Some things we wish forgotten. The books are at the end of their many colourful travels are now preserved forever in this delicious art form!"

Peter Marment- "Urban Decomposition"

Peter is an architecture student as well as a part-time artist. He has been experimenting with stencil art for three years and has developed an interest in the rapid development of cities and urban culture, which he expresses within his work.

This exhibition explores the use of iconic stencils on a variety of media, including steel, plywood and tin.
