60. Like Flowerpot

Like Flowerpot - In the midst of completing his PhD on creative writing, Oliver had a number of weeks being in a state of overwhelm. Feeling as if his body just kept going in the same routine but he wasn't conscious of it; wake up, coffee, writing, teaching, studio, shower, sleep, repeat. He felt he was being rinsed of the human experience, so he took to the flowers. He drew flowerpots in the moments anxiety or frustration took over to serve as a daily mantra to be present, to breathe and be.

"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.
