The paintings of New Zealand born artist Peter Boggs are recollections and remembered settings. This solo exhibition will feature a variety of works of art from recent years which have been executed overseas and in his studio, now based in the Blue Mountains. At times uncanny, the Italian garden and interior scenes reveal a strong interest in the atmospheric quality of a place; more to do with metaphor than truth and actuality.

Newcastle-based artist Brett McMahon’s signature practice has explored the realms of the grid, geometric and linear abstraction. This exhibition traces the historical arc of his practice over the last 15 years and includes newly created works that sees McMahon move between works on paper, painting and three dimensional floor and ceiling based installations.
