A lightness of touch pervades these later works of John Scurry, now in his seventh decade. A painter of spaces – internal and external, the essentials remain constant. Exquisitely rendered objects are painted in scumbles of perfectly tuned tones, hovering around a colour note; slightly warmer, slightly cooler, barely visible yet vibrant with presence. Collected in state and regional galleries as well as prominent private collections, John Scurry’s most recent exhibitions in Canberra and his 2019 solo at Geelong Gallery have bypassed his home town of Melbourne. We are delighted to bring these new major works together in this important exhibition.
Please note: This exhibition has been postponed to February 2022. More information here
