|30 May 2011 | Sydney gallerist Michael Reid reports that the two-week Joseph McGlennon exhibition he staged at Danks Street Depot in May has now sold out, securing over $220,000. |
It was the artist’s first commercial gallery solo exhibition.
McGlennon has been working in branding & advertising for the past 25 years and has only recently turned to fine art. One work from his first body of work, Kangaroo Studies, was selected for the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize. The full series was exhibited in Strange Voyage with Michael Reid at Danks Street Depot.
The exhibition comprised eight suites of eight works, each 100 by 100 centimetres, along with four artist proofs and one larger work which was 138 by 138 centimetres.
McGlennon’s work also appears in the current issue of Australian Art Collector in the annual Undiscovered feature, which presents the work of unrepresented artists.
