Sophie Gannon Gallery presents an exhibition of work by Emily Ferretti.

Emily Ferretti’s solo exhibition, Timber Sun, includes still life, landscape and abstract oil on linen paintings and pencil on wood drawings, demonstrating her interest in materiality and experimentation.

During her recent Australia Council studio residency in New York, Ferretti researched early 20th-century American folk art. Specifically interested in memory painting from that era, references from this genre are apparent in her latest exhibition. Layers in the images create the feeling of different states (such as inside and outside; in-front and behind), challenging the viewer to explore the shifting composition as the figurative elements entangle with the abstract.

Exhibition opens: 3-5pm Saturday 24 September 2016
Exhibition closes: 15 October 2016
Location: Sophie Gannon Gallery, 2 Albert Street, Richmond VIC 3121
