Gorker Gallery is proud to present Confessions of a Model Citizen the new solo exhibition by the confronting and often controversial artist Ben Frost. Best known for his kaleidoscopic pop art and mash-up paintings Frost takes inspiration from areas as diverse as graffiti, collage, photorealism and sign-writing.

His painting ‘White Children Playing; Late 1900’s’ was deemed too controversial for some for its graphic depiction of children shooting-up drugs, and was debated recently on the Channel 7 Sunrise program. His now infamous 2000 exhibition and art prank ‘Ben Frost is Dead’ saw him fake his own death and was branded ‘tasteless’ when the art world and national media actually believed his demise.

Police have threatened to close every exhibition his 12m long collaborative painting ‘Where Do You Want to Go Today’ has been exhibited and a disgruntled viewer went so far as to slash one of the paintings with a knife in reaction to the confronting imagery. With a bold new body of work Frost is sure to delight, if not, disgust you with his new solo exhibition Confessions of a Model Citizen.

Opening Night Thursday 25 March, 6:30pm - 8:30pm Show runs until Sunday 11 April Gorker Gallery opening hours: 3:00pm - 7:00pm Wednesday - Friday
11:00am - 7:00pm Saturday & Sunday
