 Morbid Curiosities unearths treasures from FireWorks Gallery’s vast stockroom which explores and even celebrates melancholia in a gothic inspired group show. Featuring works by David Paulson, Fiona Omeenyo, Glen Mackie, Ian Waldron, Joanne Currie Nalingu, Laurie Nilsen, Michael Eather, Michael Nelson Jagamara, Pat Hoffie, Piyali Ghosh, Rod Moss, David Roy and Yvonne Mills-Stanley the exhibition indulges in darkness and finds comfort in the night. Not surprisingly, many of the works feature skulls, including David Paulson’s classic memento mori Still life & Daffodil II and three elegantly mirror-framed lino prints by The Torres Strait Islander artist, Glen Mackie Kubar E.

Adding ambient texture to the exhibition is Yvonne Mills-Stanleys mixed media work, Books I haven’t written yet which evoke visions of grand libraries in medieval castles, adorned with burgundy velvet and the faint smell of dust and old books.
