New exhibition reaches for the stars

A new exhibition at the Arnold Street Gallery is reaching for the stars.

Kain White’s Odyssey exhibition is on until February 25 and will be officially launched on Thursday.

Filled with astronaut motifs, the exhibition looks at themes of exploration, experimentation and the inspiration of the stars.

Mr White has developed a combination of traditional painting skills and uses them to investigate contemporary ideas. 

His work invites the viewer to consider humanity’s place in the world now and as we move forward.

Odyssey is an exploration of our relationship with our earthly origins and its possible effect on the way we see the world,” Mr White said.

“The infinitude of space evokes the imagination and inspires us to consider how very fragile we are here.

“If a human being departs the safety of our atmosphere they are rendered helpless and completely reliant on the artificial environment that contains them.”

Odyssey is on at the Arnold Street Gallery, 189 Arnold Street, North Bendigo, until February 25.
