ROMANCE BLOODY ROMANCE, DRAWINGS

Following an exhibition of new paintings presented at Kings Artist Run in August, Darren Munce’s examination into the cognitive functions of habituation and apperception continues in Romance Bloody Romance, The Drawings. After over 10 years of living in the same house, a move to an unfamiliar Melbourne suburb creates a heightened sense of awareness. these works on paper investigate responses to the aesthetics of unknown surroundings; in seeing things for the first time, in the psychology of the new moment. detached from the world of objects and filled with analogies, rhythms and metaphors, this autobiography of abstract drawings is driven by the discoveries made over the passage of time.
