Artist Network Program
THE RVCA ARTIST NETWORK PROGRAM, COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS THE ANP, IS AN ONGOING PROGRAM WHICH AIMS TO SHOWCASE THE TALENT OF ACCOMPLISHED AS WELL AS UNKNOWN ARTISTS WHO INSPIRE OUR GENERATION AND PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF CREATIVITY; PROVIDING SOMETHING OF SUBSTANCE AND CULTURE.
TO RVCA, AN ARTIST IS NOT SOMEONE WHO JUST PAINTS A PICTURE, OR WRITES A SONG, BUT SOMEONE WHO IS DEDICATED TO SHARING WITH THE WORLD THEIR LIFE, EMOTIONS AND SOUL THROUGH INNOVATIVE AND CREATIVE IDEAS. RVCA AND THE ANP WERE DEVELOPED TO SHAKE THE VERY FOUNDATIONS OF THE BUSINESS, BY GIVING BACK TO THE ARTISTS AND PROVIDING A VOICE FOR THEIR CREATIVE GROWTH.
Trent Whitehead’s recent solo exhibition ‘ The Rest Is In You’ consists of his meticulously detailed smaller works and his larger psychedelic patterned paintings. The title of the exhibition is more of an open question, allowing the viewer to perceive the works without a force fed message, or in the hope it gives them comfort of not knowing if these mysterious beings and their luminescent environment are from the past, future or another dimension. Here are photos of his opening at the RVCA Corner Gallery in Australia on April 10th.
