56. For The Rest Of My Life

For The Rest Of My Life - When Oliver arrived in store on Friday afternoon after driving from Melbourne, he spent a few hours stretching canvas with his girlfriend Mythra. We all fell in love with simplicity of this particular painting, the use of minimal colours allowed it to seem 'cleaner' than the others but it still captivated us in just the same way. Early Saturday we loaded the show in and Oliver reached for his bright red oil pastel pen and took to a number of his artworks. In a seemingly effortless and thoughtless manner, he traced around the letters and signed his name with love. We all stood back, in deep silence, taking it all in... this artwork has been transformed, given a new version of life once again.. it was beautiful.

"Puurfect” is a solo exhibition by Oliver Shaw, a multi-talented artist residing in Melbourne. Shaw, also known as RAT, is a painter, writer, and fashion designer, currently teaching creative writing at a university. Recently completing a PhD in writing and art, he holds an MFA in Playwriting from NIDA.

Following a successful solo show at Brunswick Street Gallery in late 2022, featuring sold-out paintings and ceramics and a year long hiatus from social media, Shaw's upcoming exhibition at Jack Jack Store will showcase his signature blend of painting, ceramics, and unique wearables. His art explores the visual transformation of words into artistic expressions, reflecting a spontaneous and plan-free approach. Inspired by childhood memories and the beauty of life and playful energy, Shaw aims to evoke joy, lightness, and happiness in viewers.

These works, collectively titled "Puurfect" serve as an ode to his cat Wednesday, a source of love that fuels his artistic endeavours. Shaw invites you to join him at Jack Jack Store for a delightful experience with his art.
