EXHIBITION: Date to be confirmed 2020
Born in France, Darwin-based artist Franck Gohier has an extensive portfolio as a painter, sculptor and printmaker. His work is steeped in his political and social consciousness.
It is obvious that most of the classic, vintage comic books that he appropriated for his artwork were initially targeted for the consumption of boys and young men. Even the romance comics aimed towards girls and young women seemed have been filtered through a patronising lens.
This new series of paintings continues his exploration of making woman the protagonists within the narrative.
