June 28 - November 17

A Shared Obsession explores the connection in art and life between Margaret Olley and Fred Jessup, two Australian artists who enjoyed a lifelong friendship and a shared obsession for still life painting.

They each dedicated their lives to painting — in particular to exploring the artistic possibilities of everyday objects composed and rearranged within the immediate surrounds of their own extraordinary home studios.

For the first time, examples of their paintings from across their enduring careers will be exhibited together and alongside photographic suites by Greg Weight of their remarkable creative living spaces — Olley’s in Sydney, Australia and Jessup’s in Espondeilhan, southern France.
