Gerwyn Davies at UNSW Galleries

Gerwyn Davies’ exhibition, ‘Plush’, is now open at UNSW Galleries. ‘Plush’ presents works from the series ‘Utopia’, ‘Deluxe’, ‘Sunny Boys’, ‘Idols’, ‘Leisure Sick’ and ‘Bel-Air’ all which were produced over the last four years. In each series, the artist’s body is concealed, decorated and transformed by extravagant costuming constructed by the artist. As described on the UNSW website, these figures “…take on characteristics that reflect the architecture and atmosphere of the locations they appear within – digital habitats created from altered and enhanced ‘real world’ spaces.”

The artist will also be discussing ‘Plush’ at an in conversation event with Hamish Sawyer at UNSW Galleries on 18 March. Places are limited, for more information, please click here.
