Brock Q. Piper fundraiser Art Auction: LEVITATION
The latest collection of work from Melbourne based artist Brock Q. Piper will be showcased at Brock Q Piper Studio and gallery space at Level 1, 575 Church Street, Richmond. This light filled studio was a dream come true for creative couple Brock and his textile designer wife Josie to get their hands on during the challenging year of 2020. Despite the tough year, for the Piper’s, it has also been an opportunity to dig deep and find new creative possibilities. They have been busying transforming a disused warehouse on Church street into a space for creating art, running art classes (currently via zoom) and exhibitions; their first a silent auction to raise money and give back in a time of challenge.
“LEVITATION” is a bold and vibrant foray into figurative expression. Themes of universal myths, ritual and human connection are explored, with colourful characters and storytelling. Piper cites influences of travels in Mexico, Indonesia, California and Australia; untangling the characters we encounter in our travels, our memories and the layers of history found in a place.
This exhibition will be run as a silent online auction, ending on the 12th December at 6.30pm AEST.
40% of the proceeds will be donated to Bush Heritage Australia. This independent, not-for-profit buys and manages Australian land , partnering with Aboriginal people to conserve our magnificent landscapes and irreplaceable native species forever. For more details please visit bushheritage.org.au
There will also be a launch event on the 12th December from 4.00-6.30pm. Limited ticket sales are available to be purchased for $40 from brockqpiper.com in keeping with COVID-19 restrictions. Tickets include catering, an art raffle and more! You can also make an appointment to visit the gallery before the 12th December to see all the works in person.
