In her first Australian exhibition for over five years, internationally represented surrealist Chris Wake uses a series of wild dinner party settings to explore how we are all so different and yet all the same. The 18 paintings in this collection feature opera divas, acrobats, karaoke queens and an ensemble cast of zany guests in a variety of unexpected and sometimes bizarre dinner party settings that exude a kind of wild energy. The fish eye perspective, the twisted glasses and bottles and the fluid body shapes of her subjects evoke a visceral response. Her work is held in private and corporate collections nationally and overseas including the Ahuja Art Museum in India.
