30th May - 23rd June 2018
Darwin based artist Franck Gohier has an extensive portfolio as a painter, sculptor and printmaker. His artwork is steeped in his political and social consciousness. Satirical, politically and socially motivated his work is a reflection of society and its faults, frailties and triumphs.
In the past Franck Gohier’s artworks have employed many aesthetics within the comic book genre to examine socio/political and interpersonal themes. Franck is fascinated by people - their aspirations, hopes, fears, and shortcomings.
‘In this latest body of work “Dirty Deeds” I delve into some of the slightly darker sides of humanity that piqued my interest via detective comics and Film Noir aesthetics. I am consciously aware that most comic books are marketed at young men and so I created a lot of imagery that centre around strong, empowered woman characters’ says Franck.
