Trevelyan Clay, 'Altar' opening at Neon Parc

You kind of want a guy with a name as cool as Trevelyan Clay to be a bit of a dick. Makes you feel better about being called Scooter Crysalot or whatnot. Well, sorry Scooter. He isn't. He's an artist of some renown and a member of weirdo band Bum Creek. Painting is mostly his thing. Gaudily coloured, primitivist in a sophisticated sort of way and suffused with a vague feeling of abstracted Australiana. He seems to have been doing larger, geometric canvasses that suggest a kind of symmetry without ever really achieving it.
