Heather Stewart: False Histories and Catherine Robertson: Confluence

03 5221 6505

Until 22 Jul 2017

Heather Stewart’s paintings and drawings are driven by an interest in the nature of identity and focus on the mysterious historical figure of Mary Magdalene. Heather explores how powerful imagery has created a false history of Magdalene’s character, with resultant works evolving through passages of painting that at once reveal and conceal; break and mend; fragment and unite, creating a metaphor for how we have come to know this elusive identity.

Catherine Robertson sees her paintings as an expression of the subconscious processes of life experience and landscape from time spent in the Australian bush and living in Papua New Guinea. Catherine’s paintings are an expressive deconstruction of landscape in which the dispersion and layers of colour and light have been strengthened by her interest in artists like Claude Monet and William Turner.

Enjoy opening night of the two exhibitions at 6:00pm to 8:00pm on Thursday 6 July. The Metropolis Gallery is open weekdays from 9:00am - 5:00pm and Saturday 10:00am - 4:00pm.
