The Birdcage—is the latest solo exhibition by Brisbane based wildlife artist Rek. This colourful and flamboyant showcase features an entirely new collection of over 20 original Australian and exotic birdlife paintings. Composed in the artists unique fusion style of deconstructed realism, the subjects are dramatic and powerful, their intense eyes highly detailed and filled with unique personality. The tempo of his work shifts quickly, and seamlessly as realistic details give way to deconstructed gestural brushstrokes and untethered watery trails. Eventually the hidden depth of carefully selected patterned fabric underlays is revealed and what was once sharp and alive, is all but vanished—a case of art imitating life.

To further enhance the experience and in keeping with the title, the opening event on Saturday the 4th of May will feature a cast of the Grand Dames of Brisbane’s Drag royalty including sportsman hotel hall of fame member Betty Nature, the incandescent Margo and the incomparable Mercedes Bent. The Birdcage will truly be an eclectic celebration of events.
