Upcoming Exhibition

The intricately crafted and highly imaginative images of contemporary Australian artist Lucy Hardie are breathtaking to behold. Lucy’s mesmerising subjects inhabit a world of fantasy and mystery and draw us into a personal journey examining life, death, and spirituality.

With a strong emphasis on the female figure, her narratives are interwoven with elements of romanticism, mysticism and the gothic imagination. Influenced by the Old Masters, Lucy’s work seems to recall a time passed. Her meticulous compositions of light and dark rendered with the layers of fine lines and dots are awe-inspiring in their execution.

Lucy Hardie is an emerging artist who has already made a large impression throughout Australia, Europe and the US, her artwork is now highly sought after. She has exhibited extensively and is featured in numerous art and literary publications worldwide.

Devotion will showcase Lucy’s most recent limited edition Giclèe prints, along side examples of her original fine pen and ink drawings.

MICHAEL WEDD – In My Beginning is My End

Italo Calvino once wrote; My inside was out and my outside was in…originally, I was surrounded by water and now I am constituted largely of it.’ From the earliest signs of life on the planet as mono-cellular life-forms to our current evolutionary status as the dominant controlling species, we have displayed a remarkable ability to adapt genetically.

Michael Wedd’s work, both figurative and non-figurative, is an exploration of ideas pertaining to our collective identity. “It is a mapping of spatial and tonal relationships, antithetical opposites, micro-macro relationships, symbols, languages and mark making. A personal D.N.A of emotional intelligence/existence.”

In My Beginning is My End (the title taken from T.S Eliot’s Four Quartets) is a retrospective exhibition of unique state prints made within the last decade of Michael Wedd’s art career. Michael describes his art practice as “a way of connecting with the world and reconnecting with the primordial aquatic. Submerging and emerging images caught between creation and destruction.”

Exhibition dates: 2 – 23 March 2017
Opening night: March 2nd 6 – 8pm
