Benalla Art Gallery – Chris O’Brien: Oh, the places I’ve seen! 

Bridge Street Benalla Victoria

Benalla Art Gallery and Arts Project Australia proudly present Oh, the places I’ve seen!

— a Summer Gallery Shop exhibition by Chris O’Brien.

Chris O’Brien (b 1981, Melbourne) is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in painting, printmaking, sculpture, video and artist zines. He is interested in representing domestic dwellings that feature him, his friends and television personalities living there. Works are imbued with narratives, whether drawn from memory or invented stories involving thieves, ghosts and animals. Beyond his personal memories, his works are visually informed by materials such as real estate brochures, photos, Google Earth maps, and architectural plans.

His current work focuses on creating vibrant soft sculpture houses that have humorous titles and narratives. O’Brien has worked at Arts Project Australia since 2002 and presented his first solo exhibition, Marjorie Street, in 2007. He has participated in numerous artist collaborations and group exhibitions nationally and internationally. His work is held in private collections worldwide.
