Post Opening Night, the exhibition will be open free of charge to the public until Sunday 11 April (showing daily from 10am-6pm weekdays and 12pm-5pm on weekends). All artworks are for sale. Curated and presented by aMBUSH Gallery, this is an unforgettable multidisciplinary solo exhibition from Sydney-based street artist and Archibald Prize finalist, Luke Cornish (aka E.L.K.) that explores themes of injustice and protest. Come and see firsthand these 54 intentionally confrontational works that hold a mirror up to society, and challenge the audience to think analytically about global issues.
Luke's extraordinary hand-cut photo-realistic stencil works are a no-holds-barred barrage of subject matters and unorthodox artistic materials, including an upside-down figure of Christ on a cross, paper currency from dozens of different countries adorned with confronting images, and all manner of weapons - from riot shields to hunting knives, meat cleavers, swords and cutthroat razors.
