Interview: Garrett Huxley
Merging fashion and art, pop colour and formal portraiture, Melbourne artist Garrett Huxley’s ‘Carnival of the Animals’ is a body of work paying homage to mankind’s relationship with the animal kingdom. If Huxley’s artistic hallmarks are his love of mixed media compositions and exuberant expression, then this exploration of our disconnect from the natural world speaks vocally to his arresting style.
The exhibition at Gallery One Three mixes photography, video works and design: photographic portraits of costumed animals created by Garrett are printed on to lush fabrics which were worked in to dynamic, one-off garments.
See ‘Carnival of the Animals’ on exhibit for one more week at Gallery One Three, 13 Somerset Place, Melbourne CBD. Open Wed-Fri noon-5pm.
