new exhibition in Melbourne

Hard Candy is an exhibition of large scale paintings featuring semi-abstract, exaggerated figures and images in sweet candy-coloured hues. Taking inspiration from the feminine ideal, everyday subjects and the digital cultural experience the paintings are created with thin layers of paint, scratchy gestural brush-strokes and fields of colour. The works create nonlinear narratives, piecing together elements and materials to retell an unknown story that exists somewhere between reality and a dream.
