James Mulholland: Decoy

James Mulholland’s practice investigates the ‘nocturnal self’ that exists inside the young Brisbane male. Examining its formative relationship with crime scenes and ‘hooliganism’ that are culturally inseparable from the nightlife in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, Mulholland produces large, graphic, drawn, re-interpretations of this imagery on paper. The authenticity of the young male “Deviant” that frequents in news worthy ‘crime narratives’ is placed under scrutiny and separated from his contemporary media driven myth. 

Opening Night Friday 27 May 6-9pm.
