The Drawing Room
6 February - 19 March 2016

A Drawing Room - every house should have one. The drawing room can also be
re-considered as a studio, a space to draw in. The drawings selected for this exhibition refer to space and
the spatial aspects of the works.

Gallery I
Roy Jackson Retrospective
Curated by Sioux Garside and Terence Maloon, toured by the Drill Hall Gallery, ANU and the Roy Jackson Memorial Fund.

This exhibition spans fifty years of painting and drawing by one of Australia’s most distinctive
abstract painters, Roy Jackson. Roy Jackson was regarded as a “painter’s painter” - a rare talent whose work explored and challenged the possibilities of representation and abstraction.

Infectious Desires
This series is an imaginary literary salon, over-run by soft textile growths: chair forms warp and stagger, mutate and support colonies, a coral reef crawls over a broken love-seat. Competing colonies vie for space, crowd each other out, compromise, adjust.

In the Cut
This body of work explores the spaces that open up when we investigate beyond the surface of our everyday.
