April 7th-May 12th, 2018
Opening Reception April 7th, 6-8 pm.


“Artifacts is a series of paintings exploring the effect that humankind has on the natural world, alongside the influence the natural world has on us.” (Kane Kokaris)


Kane Kokaris is a self-taught acrylic artist from the Gold Coast, Australia.
His paintings are imaginative, stylised and often dark.
Influences vary from nature and wildlife, to tattoo culture.
He looks to partially tell a story within each composition, giving creatures a dreamlike world of their own. Although most tales are seemingly ill-fated, capturing the beauty in the darkest of moments is his main desire. Showing viewers images which evoke their own symbolic meaning and encouraging them to let their imagination run free.
