Martin Browne Contemporary presents Obsolete Logos, a new exhibition of paintings by Peter Atkins. The white painted redundant, obsolete logos from the early 1970s appear to float over the faded yellow canvas tarpaulin providing a juxtaposition between new and old, the forgotten and the remembered. The artist states, ‘I see these logos as emotional triggers…they have the capacity to evoke memory, nostalgia and a shared history of past experience…they are beautiful forgotten things, gentle reminder of who we were and where we have come from – they are signposts from the past leading us into the future’.

Exhibition opens: 6-8pm Thursday 20 August 2015
Exhibition closes: 13 September 2015
Location: Martin Browne Contemporary, 15 Hampden Street, Paddington NSW 2021
