an exhibition of new works by
Noel McKenna

quirky paintings of the suburbs and things suburban resonate with both melancholy and content. The viewer becomes voyeur to the mysterious, disquieting lives of the fringe dwellers. McKenna won the Trustees' Wynne Prize for watercolour and is described in Australian Art Collector as "one of the most promising contemporary artists." He was also the recipient of the 2001 Melbourne Savage Club Acquisitive Art Prize.

Noel lives and works in Sydney.

Richard Larter

is English born but moved to Australia with his wife Pat, in 1962. Until her death in 1996, Pat was an artist, film maker and active collaborator with Richard throughout his career, modelling for a great number of his paintings.

Larter's works raise questions about the nature of erotica, the sex industry and commodity fetishism. His glimmering canvases often incorporate glitter, photoscans, chromacryl paints and found images.

In 1996 Larter was awarded the prestigious Joan & Peter Clemenger Art Award for long-term excellence. He currently lives and works in Narrabundah, ACT.
