 Carl Gopal Solo

1991

Carl Gopal – Solo was my first solo exhibition in 1991 at the Bridge Gallery in Northbridge,Western Australia. It happened quite by accident with the support of a small gallery that was showing all the odd stuff inPerth. A scary and enlightening experience and I haven't looked back. It's been 20 years since and although this work reflects where I was at the time and the era, it holds a special place for me. 
Thematically, the subjects were very personal created from 1987 to 90, including in Melbourne when I was working in the fashion industry as a textile designer in Richmond.  I lived in a small studio in South Yarra behind a converted Edwardian mansion that was in stages of recovery. The people and places from that time found their way into my art.
