CURRENTLY SHOWING AT RED GALLERY James Grant - Portraits Between Alice Springs and Darwin Catherine Bainbridge & Patricia Vipond - Breathing Space Marie Watt - After The Rush G1 James Grant - Portraits Between Alice Springs and Darwin The image of the cowboy is emblematic of the stoic Australian ideal. In a period of fluctuating national identity, it is held by many as a nostalgic symbol of national character and by some, an antiquated symbol of a conservative past. Portraits Between Alice Springs and Darwin presents a collection of these figures drawn from childhood memories of farmers and stockmen while Grant travelled this region. Executed on several large scale canvases the characters depicted here explore ideas of masculinity, isolation, fragility and the development of identity G2 Catherine Bainbridge & Patricia Vipond - Breathing Space Landscapes depict vistas from the real world outside; artists abstract these views by representing a geographical place by its visible forms. Catherine Bainbridge and Patricia Vipond explore the vastness of northern Australia and the natural bushland of the Yarra's materiality by immersing themselves in the scene and responding to it with intricate splashes of watercolours, large paint & canvas installations, and raw emotion. G3 Marie Watt - After The Rush The discovery of gold in Victoria in 1851 changed our State forever. We are familiar with the grand buildings constructed during the gold rush period in now thriving regional centres such as Ballarat, Bendigo, and Castlemaine, but the gold rush also left a ghostly but beautiful landscape, with its abandoned mines and ruins, and ghost towns frozen in time. Marie Watt's series After the Rush uses infrared photography to emphasise the atmospheric solitude of the lesser known gold rush sites - in a bid to remind us of a wider vibrant, though harsher, past.
