[This exhibition is running alongside Ngeerrangoon by Kelsey and Tarryn Love]

DEEP DARK AMUSEMENT PARK is an exploration of process, confrontation and transition. It’s a space that doesn’t exist, eclipsed by a steep learning curve.

“Weird, dark and gnarly things offset and highlight the oddness of life.
Explore the weird dark places that hide our mistakes and fears.
The dark is realer.
The dark is deeper.
The dark is smarter and more interesting.

This collection of works celebrates daemons, dreams and creatures of the night as well as those who bask in the moonlight.”

Stacey is a Geelong creative, who completed her Diploma of Graphic Design at the Gordon TAFE in 2012, wherein she received the Most Outstanding Student and Illustration award. Stacey was also a nominee in for the Princeps Shield – for her positive community involvement and dedication to the arts. Subsequently the Australian Academy of Design then sponsored her to complete a degree in Graphic Communications. During her studies she was chosen to be apart of The Courthouse Youth Arts – Arts Advisory Panel, which organized arts events, workshops and experiences. In 2014 Stacey then went on to be the Curator of the Courthouse Arts Gallery. In her career as a graphic artist, she specializes in designing artwork for the interior design market. Dozens of her designs have been featured on The Block, House Rules, and Reno Rumble. Stacey is a big supporter of the local art community; having exhibited on countless occasions in solo, shared and group shows.

“A chaotic dreamscape,
Full of
looming siren-structures,
That tell you
how to get there,
and
Lush, sleepless entities,
That remind you
why you should turn back.”

Riley is a typical, escapist Pisces.
He designs things for a living, and plays Jazz for fun.
Riley tries to make up for what he lacks in social skills, with curiosity.

CHYA is an inclusive, diverse space and all are welcome to come along. Light nibbles will be provided on the night.

CHYA would like to acknowledge that this exhibition takes place on the stolen land of the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin nation. Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and culture. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
