Bett Gallery starts a new chapter in the gallery’s history, opening its new space in Hobart CBD with two incredible solo exhibitions by nationally renowned and celebrated Tasmanian artists Pat Brassington and Amanda Davies.

‘M I S T A K E’ is a series of new figurative paintings by Amanda Davies, in which her image manifests in ways that are inspired by real and imagined stories about loss of control and errors of judgement. She establishes situations in the studio that engage the tradition of theatricality in painting – situations that don’t quite make sense. As in previous work the figure in the paintings has returned to the ground - lying horizontal, the position for sleeping, dreaming, healing and death.In developing her poses and props Davies engages with research of disparate subjects resulting in intriguing and compelling imagery.

Exhibition opens: 5.30–7.30pm Friday 27 July 2018
Exhibition closes: 18 August 2018
Location: Bett Gallery, Level 1/ 65 Murray St Hobart TAS
