Visit tanksarts­cen­tre.com This con­tem­po­rary art ex­hi­bi­tion from lo­cal col­lec­tive Knock Knock Con­tem­po­rary Artists’ Ini­tia­tive high­lights the com­plex re­la­tion­ship be­tween art, artists and the art of mak­ing money. Seven well-known Cairns artists – Raewyn Biggs, Bar­bara Dover, Louisa En­nisThomas, Vide Freiberg, Julie Poulsen, Rose Rigley and Jennifer Val­madre – have cre­ated works re­spond­ing to this chal­leng­ing ex­hi­bi­tion theme. An­gela Meyer brings to­gether Euro­pean and Eastern tra­di­tions in her own colour­ful and dra­matic style. This ex­hi­bi­tion is an ob­ser­va­tion of the his­tor­i­cal and the ev­ery­day. An­gela re­sponds to the paint­ings of Michelan­gelo’s Flood, The Fall and The Cre­ation. She play­fully ap­pro­pri­ates Ger­i­cault’s Raft of the Me­dusa and Da Vinci’s Vir­gin of the Rocks. Her work also re­flects on the paint­ings of Shi Tao who used ges­tu­ral lines and forms to ex­press his value of in­no­va­tion and free­dom. Bor­row­ing from his­tor­i­cal paint­ings is a way to un­der­stand the world, where within the inan­i­mate pic­ture lives hu­man feel­ing.
