Picasso told us that ‘art is a lie that makes us see the truth’, but what happens when the line between truth and fiction becomes blurred beyond recognition?
A Fine Romance is an exhibition about beauty and deceit. Featuring hyper-real paintings and sculptures by a range of contemporary artists, it is as seductive as it is awe-inspiring.
Drawing on the Gallery’s collection, together with dazzling artworks sourced from behind the closed doors of private collectors, A Fine Romance is an experience not to be missed!
The line-up represents a who’s-who of Australian realism, including Natasha Bieniek, Robin Eley, Louise Feneley, Juan Ford, Sam Jinks, Sam Leach, Matt Martin, Matthew Quick, Shannon Smiley, and Heidi Yardley.
