Docklands’ unique essence displayed

Local artists Joseph Flynn and Jake Stollery will launch an exhibition inspired by Docklands this month.

“Contemporary Convergence” at The Front in Harbour Town will feature a range of individual works and collaborations from the Docklands residents.

Both are multi-disciplinarian artists and the exhibition will focus on the merging of digital media and physical materials, including digital prints, an installation sculpture, photographic work and projection.

“I’ve tried to capture certain essences of Docklands in my work,” Mr Stollery said.

Mr Flynn agreed, adding: “The colours and general aesthetic of Docklands inspired the work.”

“The colours and the water, the architecture – there’s a futuristic sort of feel to Docklands and to our work.”

The exhibition will be held at The Front, which is part of Renew Australia’s Docklands Spaces project and allows creative enterprises to use unleased spaces rent-free on short-term, rolling leases.

Mr Stollery and Mr Flynn said Docklands Spaces was a great initiative for both artists and for the wider community.

“It gives artists the opportunity to use empty spaces, which I think is fantastic,” Mr Flynn said. “But it’s really important for Docklands’ local community as well.”

“It brings culture to the area that might not necessarily have been here otherwise,” Mr Stollery added.

“Contemporary Convergence” opens at The Front on Friday, February 6 and closes on February 28.

The Front is located at 424 Docklands Drive.
