Backwoods Gallery, Collingwood Reviews - Write a Review

  • Gallery owned by Japanese contemporary artist. He introduces many great artists from Japan. Bit hard to find since there is no signs on streets.

  • Backwoods gallery is a bricks and mortar institution housing some of the finest Australian cultural artefacts I have ever set my eyes upon. It was more than a pleasure to finally make my way to this Collingwood-based art gallery in a brief moment of respite during my most recent pilgrimage to Melbourne. Backwoods gallery is quite literally back in the middle of the 'woods' of Collingwood. It is, as I have often found with such gemstones of artistic accomplishment, a little off the beaten track. It lacks any obvious signage or the hordes of riff-raff that one might expect at a major State gallery. Nonetheless my pilgrimage here was undoubtedly the most pleasant moment of my Backwoods experience. As I stepped onto the pavement at the listed street address, I was visually accosted by a vision from above. A trio of beautiful, bare-skinned women had descended from the seventh tier of heaven onto the most incredible medium of some kind of acrylic paint on brick. Let me say, that while I outwardly exclaimed to my companions that the sight was a morally depraved and distasteful vision, I was most impressed, confronted, and energised by the ladies before me. Such brazen art as this is a rarity in this day and age and I thoroughly hope that your fine gallery shall grow and propagate. Kind regards, Mr G Patel.
