Sex, Lies, Candy
Sensory Exploration & Indulgence
If the title didn’t grab your attention, the works will.
A hyper-realistic gummy bear is riding an engorged Allen’s snake through a rainbow asteroid storm. What? No, bright coloured jelly babies are parachuting out of the sky. Huh? Yes, I think I just saw a hybrid candy-man playing with a kite. Well don’t worry, you aren’t crazy. You are just at an art exhibition.
At 6.30 pm on Thursday the 31st of May, Goodtime Studios will play host to the opening of ‘SEX, LIES & CANDY’ a collaborative exhibition by Melbourne artists Stephanie Mermigas & Steve Lees.
The 24 pieces on display will be manifestations of the artists’ experiences and observations of sexuality, betrayal and intimate desires with a playful edge and will explore society’s most intimate desires.
The exhibition will act as a loud war cry to Sydney who will this month host 206 exhibitions compared to Melbourne’s 150, a reversal in numbers since this time last year.
For something a little different, the opening will culminate in a live joint painting display by Lees & Mermigas accompanied by the sublime majestic beats of Melbourne’s DJ Prequel.
So tell whatever lie you have to and get there. Try one of these sexy servings before you go and enjoy the eye candy.
You’re move Sydney.
‘Sex, Lies & Candy’ will show at the Goodtime Studio
