RAW: Kelly Gertig’s Pop Art Exhibition
Kelly Gertig’s artworks literally pop out of the bland walls at The Caledonian in North Adelaide.
Sure the style is simple, but Kelly has created great examples of Pop Art. Using bold and bright colours as well as the the recurring motifs of her character ‘Redhead’ and nude silhouettes, this exhibition is where pop art meets art deco.
When talking about the ‘Redhead’, Kelly explains (at her opening) that she was inspired by images of women in the 1950s.
“I love all things vintage. I really wanted to portray that 1950s look with the ‘Redhead’.”
Scattered about the renovated Caledonian Hotel, it’s definitely worth seeing over a bevvy or two.
