Exhibition

Ian Wood Retrospective

Ian Wood

May 1 – June 30, 2021

Ian’s careful use of colour together with his attention to detail, create works of deliberate intricacy. Colours intertwine for a gentle or tumultuous ride into places where it seems, nothing stands still.
His unique affinity with colour, texture and design was birthed during his career as a successful interior designer. For more than three decades, Ian completed many commercial and residential projects and also designed furniture, lighting, fabrics and floor coverings.
With his art, the colours, whether rich and vibrant or soft and subtle, produce an explorable texture of great depth and energy. These inspirational works can be bold and adventurous, mellow and comforting or interweave a combination of the gentle with the dramatic.
Ian began his journey in fine art in 2002 and held his first exhibition in Melbourne in 2004. He is also an accomplished writer, poet and has a passion for music.
His art is inspired by the unique colours and ancient textures of Australia.

When: May 1 – June 30 2021
Opening: Saturday 1st May @ 2PM
Where: MIRA Marysville
Cost: Free

Performance

The Spooky Men’s Chorale

May 23th @ 6pm 

The Spooky Men’s Chorale is a vast, rumbling, steam-powered and black-clad behemoth, capable of rendering audiences moist-eyed with mute appreciation or haplessly gurgling with merriment. Through an evening of drop deadpan beautiful mansinging, the Spooky Men’s Chorale ponder the conundrums of modern life and manhood, invite the audience to joyously experience a wall of mansound, laugh stupidly, and venture into areas of great tenderness. It is not so much comedic as hilarious, not so much shimmeringly perfect as pleasingly and deeply human.

When: Sunday 23rd May @ 6pm
Where: MIRA Marysville
Cost: $25
