Lucy Culliton: Bibbenluke Menagerie - Art Collector

Lucy Culliton, Budgies and kangaroos, 2017. Oil on canvas 60.0 x 60.0 cm. Courtesy the artist and Jan Murphy Gallery, Brisbane.

The beloved animals at Lucy Culliton’s farm in regional NSW feature in her first solo exhibition held at Jan Murphy Gallery.

Inspired by life in the country, Culliton is an artist imbued with the collector’s impulse to amass and record, a hunter who finds her treasures in the theatre of the everyday. A realist by temperament, Culliton extracts the objective truth from her chosen forms with accuracy and precision, but never at the cost of painterly expression. Culliton’s paintings are richly textured celebrations redolent with luscious colour, intricate pattern and the powerful rhythms of repetition.

Exhibition Opens: 2pm - 4pm, Saturday 21 October 2017
Exhibition Closes: 4 November 2017
Location: Jan Murphy Gallery, 486 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006.
