In Revlon-G Dunedin based painter, musician and installation
artist Michael Morley takes fashion advertising as the starting
point for a whirlwind tour of late Twentieth Century culture.
Crudely rendered skateboards emblazoned with skull and crossbones,
psychedelic computer generated photographs, massively enlarged
Polaroid snapshots, and miniature soldiers enacting sad stories
all jostle for attention in this overload of visual and aural
Revlon-G has been variously described as "a poor person's
guide to the craving for identity" and "an unsound retro-acidhouse
experience," however by Morley's own account this body of
work is instead an examination of the minute variations in the
eyeshadow of famous people.
