ART ON THE MOVE’s touring exhibition, Creations from the man cave, examines the act of experimentation and creative making, through Neil Elliott’s imaginative recycled sculptures. The works are made out of found objects that Neil Elliott has utilised and crafted into nostalgic works of fine art. The purpose of his art is to inspire creativity, experimentation, and enjoyment. This can be seen through the visual puns, unique compositions  and positive atmosphere of his work and practice. The industrial mood to the collection demonstrates an alternate look at fine art encouraging the viewer to explore their own understanding and views about art. Neil’s light-hearted and playful approach, to the creation of art, makes his work highly accessible to a wide audience.

The strong message of recycling has many environmental advantages, as well as social outcomes. This message is connected through the exhibition, workshop program and Act-Belong-Commit Engagement Program to activate and bring communities together in a fun, creative and positive environment with productive results. Start the journey to reimagine your perspective of found objects and recycling and engage with Creations from the man cave.

Join the artist Neil Elliot in Geraldton for a series of free educational workshops at the Gallery on Monday 13th of August. To book a spot for your primary or secondary school group contact our Gallery Officer Ellen via ellenn@cgg.wa.gov.au

The free Act-Belong-Commit Engagement Program presented by ART ON THE MOVE is made possible through investment by Healthway. The program provides young people in regional and remote areas across Western Australia with the opportunity to experience the visual arts through engaging with practising artists. The program raises awareness and understanding of the Act-Belong-Commit message, encouraging behaviour change leading to good health, and facilitating structural and policy change to create healthy environments.
