Opening - Peter McFarlane: Shapeshifters

Aug 12 2011 to Aug 12 2011

The Chainsaw series came about as a result of Peter's connection to Pegasus Gallery. Looking at the gallery's vast collection of indigenous art and artifacts, he was struck by how similar the shape of a Raven mask was to his chainsaw. As the first chainsaw shapeshifted into a metal mask in his studio, the play on ravens as tricksters and gluttons became obvious. The fate of clear-cut forests and clear-cut cultures literally seemed to hang in the raven's beak.

Join us at the exhibition opening on Friday 12 August 2011 from 5pm–8pm. Exhibition continues through Saturday, 3 September.
