Framing Phantasm

Kevin Chin, Aimee Fairman, Lucy Griggs

Curated by Simone Hine


13 July - 24 August 2013


Framing Phantasm presents the work of three artists that evoke the indefinable quality of a half-remembered dream or distant memory. Across painting and sculpture, these works offer moments of detail that are isolated from ordinary flows. They invite the viewer embellish the worlds that they create, beyond the  indicators that lie within their frames.

Kevin Chin has exhibited his works in solo exhibitions at Westspace, (2010), Linden Contemporary Art Space (2009) and Kings ARI (2009). His work has been included in group exhibitions at Paradise Hills (2011) and the Margret Lawrence Gallery (2012). Kevin Graduated from VCA with First Class Honours in 2012.

Aimee Fairman has exhibited both nationally and internationally, including Kunstraumarcade, Mödling, Lower Austria  (2008),West Space (2008) and Beam Contemporary (2011, 2012). After completing a Masters of Fine Art at RMIT in 2007 Fairman was awarded the AIR-Krems, Kunstmeile Krems, Austria in 2008 and the Rondo Studios Artist-In-Residence, Kultur Service Steiermark, Graz, Austria, in 2009.

Lucy Griggs has exhibited widely for over a decade, with solo exhibitions at Milani Gallery (2013, 2011), MARS (2010, 2008), Metro Arts (2008, 2003) and Seventh (2007). She has also exhibited in group exhibitions at QUT Art Museum (2012) and George Paton Gallery (2007). Lucy graduated with a Masters of Visual Art from VCA in 2007. Her works have been collected by the City of Melbourne and the National Gallery of Australia.
