EXHIBITION: Anna Farago - #daddyasbirds

#daddyasbirds is a series of small gouache studies and oil paintings which evolved out of a year of grief for artist Anna Farago and her daughter Cleo. Adrian Miles, Anna’s husband and Cleo’s Dad, died suddenly whilst riding his bike near Kinglake in early 2018. Adrian loved Australian nature and soon after his death, Anna began to connect with Adrian’s spirit through encounters with his favourite local birds.

EXHIBITION: Polly Hollyoak - Cacophony

“Straddling the boundaries between abstraction and representational forms, my work explores, colour, pattern and layering through the medium of painting. As a female artist I am particularly drawn to the imagery used in the marketing towards women. I find society’s obsession intriguing and my work intends to reflect this.”

EXHIBITION: Gillian Lever - Sustain and release
Jan
9
to Jan 20

EXHIBITION: Gillian Lever - Sustain and release

‘Perfusion’ is a term describing the distribution of fluid within a bodily organ. Sustain and release is a work that aims to perfuse the environment it occupies — filling up trajectories or streamlines, without destroying or displacing what's already there. When you perfuse an organ, you don’t change its shape or size. You add to it in such a way that it either thrives or is poisoned.
