BRODIE O’LOUGHLIN
CHROMIUM SS

1 – 16 May, 2021

CHROMIUM-SS reforms salvaged and decrepit materials from our kerbsides and op-shops and utilises donated paint and no-longer wanted or used objects. Brodie adopts an improvisatory approach to making art, allowing materiality, colour and form to guide him produce abundantly and with vigour. His practice is at times sprawling, disconcerting and chaotic. At other times it is refined, elegant and considered. CHROMIUM SS straddles both of these sensibilities to present a representation of the Gold Coast by someone familiar with the undercurrent of its sheen. The exhibition features painting, sculpture, photography and video. CHROMIUM-SS is the first major solo exhibition by Gold Coast based artist BRODIE O’LOUGHLIN.

BRODIE lives in Miami and completed high school in 2020. He is influenced by artists Sterling Ruby, Max Ernst, Robert Rauschenburg, Gerhard Richter, David Altmejd, Alberto Giacometti, and the art movements Arte Povera, Dadaism and Futurism. Sustainability is an integral theme and rule in Brodie’s philosophy, and consciously impacts the directions in which the work takes.
