A weekly series of solo and group virtual exhibitions curated from our stockroom. An extension of our gallery to a virtual space, the series offers a place to connect with our artists while at home.
Mapping our Own Future
Circuit Breaker: Extraordinary Measures, Extraordinary Times
Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, which has also prompted a rethink of our exhibitions in 2020…no gallery for people to visit, no worries! We’ll use this time as a circuit breaker and deliver new shows, artist Q&As and innovative projects online. Who knows – we might come up with something new that we would never have thought of (or thought possible) had it not been for life throwing us one hell of a curveball. Our latest group exhibition features artworks that will make you stop, think twice and reflect.
Ladybird: Being Normal is Boring
Dorothy Berry is an established artist whose practice spans four decades. While now in her twilight years, she has always approached her practice with great passion, which is evident in the energy and vibrancy of her paintings and drawings. Her work demonstrates a keen interest in animals, particularly birds, and often depicts them in a symbolic sense. Berry has developed an intricate set of signs in order to construct personal narratives and her work often recounts an experience, event, belief or opinion relating to her life. Her compositions frequently consist of an accumulation of these incidents or symbols, instilling the works with personal significance.
Love & Humour in the Time of Everything
A collection of works that oscillate between amusement, affection, wistfulness and the comfort of the ordinary. Inscribed in the work are the absurd, vulnerable, cheeky truths of human existence. The collection reveals perhaps one of the most innate qualities of an artist – the ability to be sensitive to the nuances of emotional states and to continuously demonstrate connection, support and affection through visual language.
In the Moment of In-between
A collection of artwork by numerous studio artists that present some scenarios we might otherwise take for granted. These things—particularly at this moment in time—are possibly some of the essential interactions and communal activities we should reflect on, hold tightly, and value the most.
Featuring work by Dionne Canzano, Boris Cipusev, Alan Constable, Leo Cussen, Bronwyn Hack, Matthew Gove, Paul Hodges, Bobby Kyriakopoulos, Miles Howard-Wilks, Fiona Longhurst, Lisa Reid, Anthony Romagnano, Adrian Salvatore, Rebecca Scibilia, Amani Tia and Terry Williams.
What a Show off! Mine's better than yours!
Steven Ajzenberg is a figurative painter whose process is considered and often infused with a wry sense of humour. While his early work explored comic illustrations and paintings accompanied by text, a gradual stylistic evolution has seen Ajzenberg demonstrate a more complete and assured depiction of satire in his work, which is complemented by economical use of colour and composition.
