PICA Salon 2015

I managed to pop in to PICA to check out the PICA Salon 2015 exhibition and was greeted by two hairy gargoyle type creatures with glowing eyes! These guardian sphinxes were by Tarryn Gill and influenced by The Never-Ending Story. They were made of stockings stretched around foam and stitched up and were a pretty good welcome to the exhibition.

Another highlight was the Pip & Pop wall. Pip & Pop is Perth artist, Tanya Schultz, whose installation works I have enjoyed for a while. They are always bright and fantastical and often made of sugar and glitter! This is the first time I have seen 2-D work by her and I love it! There is a lot of cute in the kaleidoscopic wallpapers - if you look closely you might find kittens, plastic flowers, owls, cupcakes and of course, lots of glitter!
