An Australian themed art exhibition by Darren Gilbert of new black ink artwork and rusty metal sculptures. 

26th October to 18th November

Bolin Bolin Gallery at Bulleen Art  & Garden

6 Manningham Rd W., Bulleen. 88503030.

Darren Gilbert’s striking pen & ink artworks celebrate Australian fauna, beckoning viewers to stop and really “see” the fascinating and often overlooked characteristics of our natives. The amazing patterns of plumage & fur, soulful expressive eyes, the unique curve of a beak, the gnarly texture of a claw is juxtaposed with bold gestural black ink brush strokes.

Darren’s incredibly detailed artworks marry well with his stunning sculptural works created from used timbers & rust bittern objects  – inspired by shapes found in the natural landscape; giant seed pods, stylised leaves and abstract bird forms. Contemporary outdoor wall-art featuring laser-cut designs, majestic engineered garden forms and all manner of statement pieces created from salvaged objects, weathered timbers & rustic metal.
