Press release information:
Underdogs Gallery is proud to present “Slither Between the Blinds Shows Our Fears”, the first solo by Australian visual artist Anthony Lister in Lisbon, Portugal.
“As a child, I was repeatedly told by my father that I had an Aboriginal uncle. I grew up until the age of 14 believing that in fact I was partly Aboriginal by blood and in turn embraced my perceived heritage. It wasn’t until I asked for more details as a young teenager that I was confronted by an amused and dismissive father, laughing as he said: “I never said that”. In this exhibition I take a closer analysis of what it is to be influenced by misguiding role models and the potential psychologically damaging effects on misguided youth. These works are atheistic explorations analysing identity, culture, mythology, heritage, parenting and stereotypes.”
– Anthony Lister
About the artist:
The art of Anthony Lister (1979) is bold, shocking and created to generate strong reactions. Having started his path painting in the streets of Brisbane, the Australian artist is renowned today for an artistic practice that blends influences from various fields, including urban art, expressionism, pop art, and contemporary youth subcultures. Taking up the iconography and subject matter inherent to Western culture and making use of crude painting techniques blended with the vandalistic language of graffiti, Lister appropriates and reformats codes and languages in order to create a new proposal of grotesque contours brimming with creative energy. Materialised mainly in the form of painting and drawing, Lister’s art has also explored other mediums such as installation and video. He has showcased his work in both solo and group exhibitions around the world since 2000, being represented in various renowned public and private collections.
