Artist Statement

Emmanuel, a 22 year old artist from Naarm (Melbourne) explores what it means to be a human living in these unsettling times.

The effects of isolation and a worldwide pandemic have initiated a global shift in consciousness that cannot be reversed. More and more people are beginning to think for themselves, to question the truths that we've been spoon-fed and to realise the often disturbing way our society currently works.

Thirty works will be shown including those from Emmanuel's Simian Society series, depicting the way we interact as a species, and the Primate Portrait series which focuses on the stark differences in trait and personality we each possess.
