WELCOME TO THE LUCKY COUNTRY

Veronika Zeil and Ainslie McMahon

4 August - 8 September 2017
MAIN GALLERY

Welcome to the Lucky Country is an exhibition of the most recent artworks by artists Ainslie McMahon and Veronika Zeil. Expressive paintings, mosaics and sculptures tune into contemporary Australian spirit.

McMahon’s work is defined by a sense of place and identity through strong local connections to land and community. She explores the psychological effects of walking and painting familiar spaces. Her artworks reflect these experiences and universal themes of fragility and strength, growth and destruction.

Zeil’s work draws on her experience of migrating to Australia and her response to new surroundings. She incorporates themes of adaptation, exploration of place, self-awareness nostalgia and joy of life in her paintings, sculptures and mosaics.

Luck is believing you’re lucky.

NOTHING NEW?

Marlies Oakley

31 August - 29 September 2017
PALM TREE ROOM

 

Nothing New? presents a collection of collaged works of iconic figures from across time and history such as The Queen, Nick Cave and Marge Simpson. Each work is made of intricately laid hand cut postage stamps, with hundreds, sometimes thousands of pieces creating a new image. Each stamp has been carefully selected to suit the subject of the new image.

The works explore repetition of iconic imagery in the media, and raise the question: is there nothing new?

Marlies Oakley is based in Bundaberg and has an interest in popular culture and collage.
