𝙎𝙚𝙣𝙨𝙤𝙧𝙮 𝘽𝙤𝙙𝙞𝙚𝙨 is an adventure through other peoples senses. Centred around the idea of personal sensory experience as a thing to be celebrated, 𝙎𝙚𝙣𝙨𝙤𝙧𝙮 𝘽𝙤𝙙𝙞𝙚𝙨 will cause discomfort and delight.

Lani Shea-An (she/her/they) depicts her own experiences of joy and wonder in nature, particularly in reference to what she has learned through gardening. Her series of new works employs abstract and figurative painting processes, collage, and printmaking to explore the connections and emotions that the plant kingdom evokes.
The outlaw tradition - those who live ‘outside the law’ - has a rich and vivid history. In Australia, such bandits are known as bushrangers, immortalised in popular culture, celebrated through folk tales and elevated to a legendary, even mythical status.
Evolving from a personal exploration of isolation and grief, that surfaced during King’s travels of remote Australia; 𝘽𝙪𝙨𝙝𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙚𝙧 𝘽𝙡𝙪𝙚 is an inquiry into the perennial themes of loneliness, death, and longing. By tracking the spirit of the outcast ranger through historical regions and remote communities of the outback, the resulting images speak of a yearning for deep connection in the face of isolation.
𝙇𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙚 is the beginning of new work by Jacqui Malins using machine-embroidered lace to contemplate the near-complete destruction of the continent's lacy shellfish reef edging.
Exhibitions run from
9 JUNE to 2 JULY
