EXHIBITIONS IN SEPTEMBER:

Constance Hunter - Goodbye

Opening Night Tuesday 24th September

Over a year ago I realised I had forgotten to say an import "Sorry and goodbye" to something I would never be able to have back. The urge to say what I needed to say spurred these 8 pieces. I decided to paint an apology and a goodbye along with the trauma. These paintings have been sitting on my lounge room floor since March and now it is time to say, "I'm sorry, Goodbye" and to ultimately let go. The work is rough, unfinished, and childish which mimics my sentiments and gut reactions to the ordeal. 

This work is a raw nerve and I am worried about exposing it, but here it is.

EXHIBITIONS IN OCTOBER:

We are thrilled to announce the opening of ‘Junction’, an exciting exhibition of five promising, young local artists at The Old Bar in Fitzroy.
