Martin Browne Contemporary presents Local Heroes, an exhibition of new paintings by McLean Edwards that showcase his singular interpretations of contemporary portraiture. Edwards articulates the eccentricities and foibles of the human condition in paintings that are revealing and often autobiographical. He invites (and at time provokes) the viewer to enter into the worlds depicted in his paintings. These worlds are collisions of the personal and the fictional, the familiar and the estranged. Edwards introduces us to his ever-expanding cast of characters - childhood icons, artists, friends and enemies are among those invited to share the stage.

Exhibition opens: 6pm Thursday 24 July 2014
Exhibition closes: 17 August 2014
Location: Martin Browne Contemporary, 15 Hampden Street, Paddington NSW 2021
