Our third featured artist for our exhibition EVERY MIX TAPE IS A LOVE LETTER is Brennan Oliver, our youngest contributor to the show. Oliver is a first year art student majoring in "spatial practice" at VCA.
Brennan's contribution to our show is a stunning bandana suitable for large dogs or very small people.
His piece while not strictly 'jewellery' falls into a broader category of 'accessories'.
Brennan revealed that his work is made from cotton with an iron on transfer a stick on letters.
It is a homage to Advice Dog.
Advice Dog is a series of popular image macros that first surfaced on 4chan’s /b/ in 2006.
A typical example of Advice Dog depicts a cute puppy’s face against the background of a color wheel, often accompanied by unrelated advices and ridiculous instructions (i.e. Do the laundry / Rob a bank)
Brennan will be playing a slowed down rendition of Kate Bush's Hounds of Love on the night of our show.
I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands.
I don't like people who make me feel tired.
