ACORN: "My Kingdom, Not Yours"




WHEN WE THINK OF AN ACORN WE THINK OF A SMALL NUT, A SMALL NUT WITH ENORMOUS POTENTIAL, THE POTENTIAL TO BECOME AN OAK TREE, A MAJESTIC TREE OF GIGANTIC PROPORTIONS. SO, WE FEEL THAT THE NAME ACORN IS THE PERFECT FIT TO THIS EXTREMELY TALENTED YOUNG ARTIST. ACORN IS ORIGINALLY FROM CANADA BUT HAS SPENT HIS LAST SIX MONTHS WORKING IN MELBOURNE ON A BODY OF WORK THAT MUST BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED.

GORKER GALLERY IS PROUD TO PRESENT “MY KINGDOM, NOT YOURS” A COLLECTION OF WORK FROM CANADIAN BORN ARTIST ACORN. HIS WORK IS DESCRIBED AS A SELF NARRATIVE BASED UPON A WORLD OF COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS, DEPICTING NO SPECIFIC CULTURE OR RELIGION. HE WORKS IN WATER COLOUR AND INKS CREATING EXTREMELY INTIMATE ILLUSTRATIONS THAT WE KNOW YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE. RECENTLY ACORN HAS SPENT TIME FORGING AN ALLIANCE WITH MELBOURNE ARTISTS NIOR AND GHOST PATROL AS THE ‘TRIFORCE ADVANCE’ SO IF HIS ASSOCIATES ARE ANYTHING TO GO BY HE IS GOING TO BE A SERIOUS HIT WITH THE NATIVES. DONT MISS THE CHANCE TO COME AND SEE THIS AMAZING BODY OF WORK WITH A LEVEL OF DETAIL THAT WILL LEAVE YOU GORKING FOR HOURS.
