GET LOST, FIND SOMETHING - By Darren Henderson

Last Thursday night a friend and I attended the opening night of Darren Henderson's debut solo exhibition at Gorker Gallery, Fitzroy.

Having gathered inspiration from the mythology surrounding owls and human culture, Henderson has depicted owls, as have others throughout human history, as symbols of knowledge, wisdom, fertility, as well as death, famine and destruction.

It took us a while, but we came to realise the hundreds of little paintings (270 in total) were setup to look like a map of the world - and upon further viewing, the paintings actually represented, subtly of course, the different climate areas of the world.

Anyway, if you're in Melbourne, get your arse down and have a look for yourself! It runs until the 16th of May, 2010.

Until next time, bye!
