is a portrait exhibition by three of BRAG’s member artists:
Glenda Fell Jones’ award-winning classic oil portraits offer her perspective on some well-known Australians... however, in this small retrospective covering several decades, the subjects are some often not seen in portrait exhibitions, even though they form the backbone of Australia - women and indigenous people.
Frank Lindner’s intense, hyper-real photographs invite you on a journey into other peoples’ lives. This series is set in the everyday: local places and people. The subjects are startlingly exposed but in many ways unrecognisable amidst the paraphernalia of their lives, and the presence of a small visitor...
Monde Monde’s collages offer an often-poignant commentary on our world. His interest in the way our adult selves have been shaped by our childhood experience is explored in these diptychs - portraits of adults with their childhood toys... Sometimes our child-self will peep into our adult lives, and our childhood experiences help us shape the mask we carry to protect ourselves as grown-ups.
