BLACK AND WHITE

Micahel Zavros

No one does objects of desire quite like Michael Zavros (except Scott Redford of course ). So Brisbane right now is literally bursting at the seams with highly desirable things. Michael’s new exhibition at the Philip Bacon Galleries layers desire upon desire with desirable objects portraying the same. Its rich, its stylish and ironically almost entirely devoid of colour. Zavros’ monochromatic paintings and sculptures, however, are nothing if not colourful, just like the desirable people who attended the opening and seemed to heighten the effectiveness of the work. If you can’t buy one there’s no shame in just going in for the drool. Satisfaction guaranteed. At Philip Bacon galleries  until 11 December.
