Firebrand IV focuses on celebrated Queensland artist Yvonne Mills-Stanley showcasing a new series of paintings titled Taking the Temperature. This exhibition features 15 small, medium and large oil paintings and explores images of grass which can be seen as an indelible gauge of global weather conditions and climate balance. More than simply a representation of grass, these paintings evoke deeper stories and memories - a continuation of an artistic theme and a subject matter which has dominated Mills-Stanley's repertoire for the past 12 years.

Firebrand IV also includes senior artist Poly Ngal from the Utopia region in Northern Territory with her Bloom! series. Ngal’s modern interpretations of Indigenous bush tucker works are eloquently paired alongside Mills-Stanley's naturalistic grass paintings.
