Adrienne Doig: AD in Arcadia Ego - Art Collector

Adrienne Doig , AD Libitum, 2012. Embroidery on tapestry, 45 x 46.5cm.

Martin Browne Contemporary is delighted to welcome Adrienne Doig with her first exhibition at the gallery.

Adrienne Doig’s embroideries explore notions of identity through self-portraiture. In her latest work Doig has embroidered images of herself as well as native Australian wildlife onto vintage French verdure tapestries sourced during a residency in Paris. The European landscape is colonised by wallabies, wombats and rosellas whilst a fashionable looking Doig observes, rests and frolics amidst the romantic setting. These alluring and picturesque images blur the distinction between the European landscape and Australian country and question our sense of place and environment.

Exhibition closes: 25 March 2012
Location: Martin Browne Contemporary, 15-21 Hampden Street, Paddington 2021
