MossGallery in Melbourne, Australia launched the exhibition Photocrash on July 22 which features the work of up-and-coming artist and Australia native Marco Eychenne. His pieces are rich in color and full of power, capturing your gaze with its imaginative and inspiring mix of realism and surrealism. Several layers are at play, each one asking you to dissect it through your own experience.

“Marco Eychenne is fascinated by the celebrity lifestyle to which he puts his surreal twist,” shares Bill Tikos, of The Cool Hunter. “There is danger, glamour, desire, power, allure, surprise. And there is also something else, something even more sinister. Maybe transformation, deformity, the stretching of reality to something quite ghastly. Or is it all just a beautiful stretch of imagination?”

Photocrash ends August 12, 2011.
