A really good solo show this, shame its only here until Sunday but The Art Organisation who are curating the venue at 34a Slater Street like to keep things moving so there’s always something fresh to see over the 10 weeks of the Biennial.
‘Microclimates’ is an ongoing project by Tomas Cyhitski comprising a series of acrylic paintworks that originate from his travels and take him onto new journeys – both physically and mentally.
Apparently this place used to be a shop selling merchandise related to the Cream nightclub around the corner but its been empty for a long time.
The artist with the help of TAO has done a splendid job of making the place presentable. He paints mostly on to reclaimed wood from things such as tables, there are several painted skateboards and even an old deck chair which looks great.
Take a look while you can. You can see examples of the work on Tomas’ website: www.tomascyhitski.com
