‘Night Club’ brings together a group of recent works by Melbourne artist Peter Thomas that explores themes of masculinity, youth, violence, drink and drug culture…. The central series of drawings in this exhibition eponymously titled ‘Night Club’ are charcoal renderings of scenes that the artist captured while making ‘tours of duty’ down King Street in Melbourne around 3am…. Here Thomas acts almost like an official war artist deployed to document a battle in another country…. These flashes of light and of imagery emerge from the darkness as quickly as they threaten to disappear again.’
