Comprising over 20 original paintings, The World Below catalogues the extraordinary time Shirley Peters spent in the underground water reservoir below Centennial Park, which is emptied once every 20 years for routine maintenance. In this exhibition Peters brings the soaring ceilings, pillars and domes of this secret subterranean world to life while also leading us on a flight of fantasy.
