‘Things That Go Bump In The Night’ is the first Perth solo exhibition since 2012 by contemporary artist Stormie Mills. In the spirit of Halloween, the exhibition explores the themes of iconography, costumes, monsters and commonality.
30 October – 8 November 2015
Characters in costume are used by Stormie to demonstrate how vastly perceptions can change depending on appearances. On one hand, his skulls and skeletons are a metaphor for commonality, challenging us to consider that underneath it all, we are all the same. On the other, Stormie’s monsters are characters that symbolise tenacity and triumph. They are inherently good because they’ve had to know and practice compassion.
‘Things That Go Bump In The Night’ is a thought provoking body of work which will make you think twice about judging others.
