Interior Geographies

  • Neon Parlour 791-793 High Street Thornbury, VIC, 3071 Australia (map)

Interior Geographies are new works by Roynae Mayes that dance between the domestic environment, relationships, and personal narrative. In focusing on these concepts Mayes allow her subconscious to compose what she considers to be visual poetry in the vein of Frank O’Hara’s Personism. 

“Personism for O’Hara was a true abstraction of poetry, where the poem is directed to one person only, full of innuendo and instances of experience. Using loaded objects and processes I arrange and construct installations that leave keyholes for the viewer to glimpse meaning, but that are intended to be unlocked by only one.” - Roynae Mayes.

These vague suggestions of story allow the viewer the pleasure of psychoanalytic readings and positions of projection; they give space for the imagination.
