Weird at sea aims to explore the hostile nature of the ocean through a warped sense of humour, and Lovecraft inspired artwork. -Anthony Scabies

“Weird at Sea” is a collection of work by Melbourne based artist Anthony Scabies.  Inspired by the ethos of the author H.P Lovecraft  and combining a  fondness for biological illustrations and folk art, it is a richly varied exhibition of  meticulously rendered digital prints. Painterly at turns, wrily humorous at others, the show resonates with a sense of the strange – bizarre alien  forms sit side by side with awkward  family portraits - all somehow strangely beautiful.  Anthony’s work and the world it invokes may be odd and mysterious, but most of all it is deeply human.
