We’ve purchased an amazing piece of art from the captivating mind of Mr. Rowan Corkill and we want to show it off. So, we’ve decided to throw a little “art night” in honour of the piece, the artist and combatting boredom. Come hang around, listen to some great music, chat with cool people and pretend to know something about art, #soclassy.

The Others. 2013
The other, a term used within colonial times to represent the indigenous inhabitants
of a colonised country was a term labelled with ideas of savage nations with no
customs or morality, yet these terms and ideas have been created purely out of
ethnocentric views by western society. Labelling a culture as uncivilised purely
because they do not share our beliefs and morals gave western empires the moral
obligation to colonise and change an indigenous society purely for their own colonial
gain. The western world was taught to fear the Other yet in reality it was the western
world that should be truly feared as the destroyer of new worlds. The masked faces
of the other may be unsettling to the eye and sinister in their obscurity, but if we look
close enough we can see that it is the subject matter who is truly in fear, nervously
poised and staring into the eyes of change.
