Off the Kerb Gallery Presents: Hope and Optimism
15 Jun 2012 to 6 Jul 2012
As street artist Fred Bloggs, Nick Ilton installs sculptures up and down Melbourne’s streets and lanes.
Nick’s (Fred’s) Sculptures give opinion and ask opinion, that divide and unite, and that annoy, amuse, mock and bemuse.
As a practicing artist, Nick exhibits work both social and satirical in nature, which encourages us to take a look at ourselves, our media, and our leaders.
'Hope and Optimism' ponders the usefulness or otherwise, of slogans, mantras and catchphrases, in a neat sentence that draws the audience in, and leaves them reconsidering their initial thoughts on the statement in view.
The contrast of Nicks work, in a gallery environment is striking, and the way “Hope and Optimism” influences the viewers mind, is a tribute to the intricate way Nick’s mind works as a visual artist.
