Andrew Totman: Intuition
In Intuition, acclaimed printmaker Andrew Totman juxtaposes intricate multi-plate monotypes with elaborate expressionist gouache. The works reflect and combine in a mesmerising dance of abstract linework and lush organic forms.
Heath Franco: LIFE IS SEXY
LIFE IS SEXY was created in response to a residency and research trip Franco undertook in the United States of America in 2016. The work explores western popular culture, desire, lust, fetish, greed, power, and is a flag waving, hip thrusting good time!
Anthea da Silva: Transparent / Opaque
A passion for life drawing, portraiture, anatomy and physiology informs the layered and transparent themes in da Silva’s work. X-rays, shadows, charcoal, oil and acrylic mediums map the surreal undertows and the bleeding obvious, beyond the surface of the precious, fragile, not always robust human.
