For our 5th solo exhibition with Jonathan Forrest we are excited to introduce his newest series of abstract paintings. Minimal in colour and matte in finish, these new paintings are like looking through a veil: the image hints at representation, however, is grounded in pure, minimal abstraction.Read More

Greg Curnoe's "Mariposa T.T." is one of his most iconic images. The serigraph on plexiglass edition pays homage to one of his most beloved bikes, became a platform to display his technical bravado as well as highlight his interest in nationalism.Read More
Artists and Artwork
With his inventive, painterly approach, Peter Doig uses traditional printmaking techniques to investigate the rugged mountain landscape and skiing lifestyle of Zermatt Switzerland. This diverse series of etchings and monotypes reflect a self-referential process of experiment and innovation in which works continuously evolve into their final form.
New to the gallery are two sweeping prairie landscapes by legendary artist Dorothy Knowles. Known for her atmospheric "big-sky-prairie paintings", Knowles had a keen sense for dramatic compositions balanced with dappled light and subtle colours.View More
Falk's recent "Water Again" paintings appear to have been cut out of the environment – slices or pieces of water from her imagination.

Some of Christopher Pratt's most recognizable images are those of his clapboard houses featuring austere architecture. "Summer on the South East" is one of four seasonal autobiographical variations that Pratt made of his summer cabin, built on the Southeast River. This serigraph contrasts precise line and stark lighting with the softness of the natural world.View More
