Martin Browne Contemporary presents Edo, an exhibition of new paintings by Alexander McKenzie. The title of this exhibition reflects recent visits by McKenzie to Japan and his particular interest in Edo period gardens. In Edo period gardens the visitor is directed through the garden in a deliberate clockwise direction, encountering a series of scenes that are revealed at key points along the path. Often major elements are kept hidden until the last moment for maximum effect and impact. This idea has played out in McKenzie’s latest series of paintings.
Exhibition opens: 6-8pm Thursday 5 November 2015
Exhibition closes: 29 November 2015
Location: Martin Browne Contemporary, 15 Hampden Street, Paddington NSW 2021
