Kevin McKay – Glory Days: South Sydney Studies, 2015


Brenda May Gallery
March 17 - April 11
This series of small plein air paintings explores the unique urban landscape surrounding the Brenda May Gallery. I enjoy finding beauty in the everyday and immersing myself in a locality where traditional working class terraces, public housing towers and contemporary development produce surprising geometries animated by atmosphere and light. - Kevin McKay, 2014

Paper Works III, 2015


Brenda May Gallery
April 14 - May 2
Paper is such a commonplace and pervasive material. We write on it, read it, drink out of it and eat off it, yet in terms of conservation it is considered one of the most fragile of mediums in the art world. This third installment of our Paper Works series endeavours to illustrate the diversity and versatility of paper, providing a glimpse into the range of creative potential for this medium.

Todd Fuller – Little Star, 2015


Brenda May Gallery
April 14 - May 2
By night one way, by day another, the spinning ball of blue and the others of light. One falls from the sky. The dream. To catch that ball, to be that star. Zvezdochka, or Little Star was the 11th dog to be sent to space by the Russians. Like the others in her program, she endured extreme conditions as a scientific experiment into the effects of orbital travel on a living creature. Other dogs may dream of space, watch for…

Janet Tavener – Memento, 2015


Brenda May Gallery
May 5 - June 6
In my previous work ice sculptures of both heirloom and exotic fruits were photographed as they melted in a constructed glacial landscape. These works acted as a metaphor for shrinking polar icecaps, indicators of global climate change and fragility of our food system. In the new series ‘Memento’ the crystalline fruit and vegetables are no longer floating on a melting surface but have sunken into the ocean – semi submerged as they are swept along the icy current. Objects such…

Ashleigh Garwood – Of Other Spaces, 2015


Brenda May Gallery
May 5 - June 6
‘Of Other Spaces’ are allegorical images that exist to question the influence and power that landscape imagery holds in neutralizing societal frameworks and cultural understanding. The majority of early painted landscape imagery that is presented at Australian national art institutions is of a rugged, but peaceful and unified environment. There seems to be a hidden ideological agenda that informs the portrayal of the landscape, which in turn promotes that ideology. My project, ‘Of Other Spaces’, is a way of examining…

Multiples – curated by Akky van Ogtrop, 2015


Brenda May Gallery
June 9 - July 4
An exhibition of prints, books, photographs and sculptural objects. The ideology behind the artist’s multiple is born out of the anti-art movement, fuelled by Dadaism, Fluxus, Conceptual Art and Pop Art. Creating artist’s multiples, typically in short runs, allows artworks to be accessible to a larger portion of the population via the employment of economical materials and processes. Also, by making reproducible artwork, the sacredness of the object itself decreases, allowing for the concept behind the work to take precedence…
