Lyndsay Brock: Cirque
May 9, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - May 27, 2015 @ 3:00 pm
Opening in the Small Dog Gallery
Saturday 9 May 2 – 3.30pm
Cirque evokes the exoticism and mystery of female circus performers in multiple roles. The characters in Lyndsay Brock’s parade wear wonderfully elaborate costumes and each painting has, in turn, brought a hand painted ‘Viennale style’ mask to life.
These evocative works marry the precision of pencil drawing with the flow of paint. Sometimes a colour swirls into another or fades into light, faces are pale and luminous, winsome or impertinent, and garments celebrate the excitement of a timeless travelling show.
This exhibition of works on paper follows directly from the success of her three-generational Lineage exhibition in 2012. An audience fascination with her mother Heather Masters’ portfolio, which was created during the Arts and Crafts movement, inspired Lyndsay to return to those early skills and to create a folio of strongly illustrative works on paper.
