Irreverent Tales: An Artspace exhibition to make you smile

29 Jun 2017

Artist Pamela Irving will make you laugh, ponder and be amazed by her brilliant, often-quirky style in a free exhibition, Irreverent Tales, now running at the Whitehorse Artspace.

Whitehorse Councillor Raylene Carr said many already know Pamela’s work after the artist’s creation, the bronze sculpture of larrikin dog Larry La Trobe, was stolen from central Melbourne in 1995.

“Pamela is renowned for her humour and quirky mischievous characters. This exhibition is full of colour, texture, juxtaposition of ideas and media and lots of images to raise a smile,” Cr Carr said.

Her enthralling work, YOLO Man, is displayed alongside Pamela’s creation, His Apocalyptic Alphabet, with intriguing references to famous artworks throughout art history.

“Pamela also recently completed mosaic works at St Kilda’s Luna Park, and Council is delighted to be able to share this artist’s work with the Whitehorse community and visitors from across Melbourne,” Cr Carr said.

Irreverent Tales runs until Saturday 29 July 2017.

Meet Pamela Irving at Whitehorse Artspace on Saturday 29 July between 1pm-3pm (during
the Open House Melbourne event at the Box Hill Town Hall).
