Roots in Beaut Utes

 

"The classic Aussie ute gets its 15 minutes of fame in Migs's cheeky exhibition 'Roots in Beaut Utes'. Using an Andy Warhol-style aesthetic, Migs screenprints Holden utilities from the mid 1960's in slick metallic shades and bold combinations of hot bright colours. In the strongest works, the sweetness of nostalgia for the past is soured by recent politics. On a large red-and-black canvas featuring a faded white ute, the phrases "Q Jumper" and "Lucky Country" have been scrawled like angry graffiti."
