Exhibition of new works by Trevor Turbo Brown at 242






We are excited to announce our new venture as publisher of editioned screen prints from Aboriginal artists of South Eastern Australia. And what better way to kick start this venture with a series of screenprints of Trevor Turbo Brown's paintings.

The last few years have seen Turbo’s work exhibited widely beyond Victoria, with his inclusion in a show in Italy, a solo show in London, and several sell out shows in Sydney. His work has also been collected by the National Gallery of Australia, and the National Gallery of Victoria. The new year will see two of his paintings featured on banners around the City of Melbourne as part of Indigenous Art Week. Both paintings, Eagle Spring Morning and Yellow and Red Tailed Black Cockatoos, feature in this exhibition.

Brown’s day-to-day life is a far cry from the rarefied air of stark white gallery spaces where his work is usually shown. In spite of being a child of the stolen generation, a decade spent in prison, periods of homelessness, Brown has continued to find solace, escape, innocence, and energy through painting. Increasingly however, the scars of his hardships are evident in the native animals that populate his paintings. And, it could be argued, his work is stronger and more vital because of this.

History

Rogue Planet in name, is a reference to the Melbourne based political arts collective RedPlanet, which fostered the creative talents of Nicholas Mau and Carol Porter and many more artists who contributed to the art of revolution within the RedPlanet community art movement. In 1992 RedPlanet was the remaining entity of Redletter and Another Planet and other political art organizations that evolved over a twelve year period in Melbourne. It provided access and arts resources for cash strapped organizations, individuals and not for profit communities. It was the dissident voice of those with a different view to the mainstream. In the mid 90’s the screenprinted poster was fast becoming an expensive voice in comparison to more cost effective desktop publishing option. Funding from the Australia Council ceased in 1998 and eventually RedPlanet went into receivership. The State Library of Victoria bought the remaining poster stock in 2001. The Artery Gallery in Fitzroy exhibited the collection as RedPlanet Revolution in 2005. Those who remember the temper of the times received the exhibition with great enthusiasm. Younger art pundits have been inspired by the causes and attracted to the low-tech appeal of some of the works.
