A little bit
- Rona Green

We are incredibly excited to announce a new exhibition space in our Melbourne Stock Rooms; The Viewing Room. This intimate gallery space will host its inaugural show with the solo exhibition: A little bitby the fabulous Rona Green.

“In Rona Green’s art, it is not so much a question of anthropomorphic images of domestic animals, but rather these animals in her prints become allegorical creations through which the artist comments on our society. Her beasties frequently bear tattoos, wear specific costumes and carry the scars of their rites of passage. She has codified an artistic language which draws on cartoons, tattoos, stencils and street graffiti, but which has become exclusively and distinctly her own. Her technique is accomplished, but uncomplicated as she strives to maximise the impact of her images through simplicity of means.

Although there is flippancy, humour and whimsicality in the work, her prints are incredibly seductive images, funky in their aesthetic and slightly menacing and confronting in their presence. Yet for all of their light-heartedness, they do hint at a secondary role as social commentary with a generous dose of satire and with the touch of the absurd. I suspect that each of us will bring to Rona Green’s images our own emotional and cultural baggage.” – Emeritus Professor Sasha Grishin, AM, FAHA
