A Fine Romance: Realism in Australian Art

8 Dec 2018 - 17 Feb 2019

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.
