Rachel Coad: Frontier and Kirrily Hammond: Brunswick East - Art Collector

Rachel Coad, Frontier I, 2012. Oil on linen. 101 x 183cm

Frontier responds to the fight, flight and drive of the human spirit. Continuing the methodology of previous bodies of work, Rachel Coad’s new paintings explore human physiology pushed to its extreme. In this exhibition a sequence of running movements that emulate a military training regime traverse the gallery walls, while two colossal depictions of fighter jets lay hauntingly quiet on the floor.

Kirrily Hammond’s paintings stand as small testaments to everyday vistas. Brunswick East depicts local cityscapes as daylight fades and the twinkling illuminations of suburbia begin to emerge. Through careful layering of oil paint on linen, Hammond renders quietly seductive images that reveal sublime encounters in suburban environments.
