In his debut Melbourne exhibition New Paintings, 25-year-old Tasmanian painter Hilton Owen depicts people in scenes familiar to most of us, yet they have been executed with a unique twist. Hilton’s paintings depict everyday scenes of Western living. His subjects sit relaxed on a couch in their lounge room, or stroll through a mall with shopping bags in hand. However, the fluid and disjointed execution of the paintings suggest there are much more complex relationships between ourselves and our environments laying just beneath the surface.

Exhibition opens: 6-8pm Friday 25 July 2014
Exhibition closes: 16 August 2014
Location: Gallerysmith, 170-174 Abbotsford Street, North Melbourne VIC 3051
