Australian artist Damien Kamholtz has an exhibition of new works called Cowboy Rimbaud Blues opening at Queensland’s Lasting Impressions Gallery on September 9th: ‘His new work challenges the ingrained “Western” concept of the masculine where he questions the popular notion of the cowboy as the embodiment of “manly” traits, used as the desirable ideal to dominate with its gender stereotype not only the feminine but also the values of other cultures. The figures are arranged like characters on a minimal stage. The scene and scrip being performed exists in the viewer’s interpretation’.
