This exhibition draws from the broad oeuvre of Tony Ameneiro’s established printmaking practice, featuring a selection of works from his Flowering Heads, Skulls and Lilies series, together with his recent Head over Head series, which culminated in a successful touring exhibition throughout 2017. Ameneiro’s recent works are based on a research project carried out at Sydney University’s teaching museums, Shellshear and JT Wilson Museum. With an enduring inquiry into depicting human and botanical forms, the artist explores themes of morality, renewal and regeneration.
Since 1981, Tony Ameneiro has exhibited regularly around Australia and internationally, cementing his place in the Australian Art scene. His work has been collected by several major institutions including the British Museum London, National Gallery of Australia, The Art Gallery of NSW, Queensland Art Gallery and The Art Gallery of South Australia. Awarded the National 2007 Fremantle Print Award, Ameneiro is also a three-time finalist in the Dobell Drawing Prize.
