Relatively Fruity

In Oliver Cain's new exhibition Relatively Fruity he ​explores themes of gender and queer identity through linguisitic paintings, comically morphed appropriated objects and body parts, in a variety of materials.

The exhibition is running at Mount Eden's Föenander Galleries from September 24 to October 15 with new ceramics of everyday objects, such as highly glossed white milk cartons and bowls engorged by bananas, and provoking works like a​ series of stretched nipples made from bubble gum.

Oliver's work is known for pushing the boundaries between conceptualism and post-pop art. Each of the works gently nudge the viewer into an uncomfortable space but not over the edge — instead encouraging them to experience something different and deeper.
