“Pop-grunge” paintings at Chrissie Cotter Gallery

Thursday 11 February 2021

An exhibition of bold new original “expressive pop-grunge” paintings by Dirk Kruithof will feature in an exhibition at Council’s Chrissie Cotter Gallery.

The “colourful, chaotic and playfully poignant urban paintings…reflect and reference the urban environment and Inner West,” said the artist.

“The title 'Damage Control' is a perfect poetic descriptor of my idiosyncratic aesthetic style in the age of COVID-19,” he said. “Multiple voices and viewpoints vie for attention and space in the crowded surfaces of these paintings - like the graffitied signposted city streets that act as environmental influence and muse to me.”

Council's Chrissie Cotter Gallery is located in Pidcock Street Camperdown next to Camperdown Commons and is available for exhibitions and cultural events by individuals and organisations.

When in use, Gallery opening hours are Thursday - Sunday, 11am - 4pm. 'Damage Control' is on at CCG until the end of February.

Entry is free and the gallery is wheelchair accessible.

“The affordability, location, size of gallery and ability to connect with local community make Chrissie Cotter Gallery a crucial opportunity for me to keep my art practice relevant and moving forward with new work accessible to all,” said Dirk.
