Opening 14 August, 19HR
Exhibition 14 August - 4 September 2010
"Head Lines" is the first exhibition for Australian born, Berlin-based artist Rory Schmitz.
A traveller and observer from an early age, Rory is influenced by his observations of "real" and
virtual relationships. His commentary on people and society is reflected in the subject matter he
chooses to portray, focusing heavily upon the interrelation of man and machine. Through
experimentation on the fringes of contemporary and other retaliatory art he has developed a style
which merges energetic gestures honed on the streets with those of traditional portraiture.
This fascination with technology and human interactions takes him between both physical and virtual
worlds in his explorations, spanning Australia, the US, Amsterdam, Tokyo and Berlin, and into video
games, the internet, media and advertising.
