 Since graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting), Fiona McMonagle has exhibited extensively throughout Australia, in both highly successful solo exhibitions as well as curated group shows. Most recently, her work was included in So Fine: Contemporary Women Artists Make Australian History (2018) at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra.

About this new body of work, McMonagle says:

“Drawing upon my suburban upbringing I explore the familiar. I want to depict the ambiguity of the known and perceived that make up our urban landscapes. The Weekend looks at a typical weekend. Although my subjects are often known to me, I treat them as anonymous archetypes, and as a representation of universal experiences.”
