Gallery 9 is fulfilling its original intention to exhibit Sydney and overseas based artists in Melbourne, in the same way the Gallery exhibits Melbourne based artists in its Sydney premises with group exhibition Contemporary Painting.
Contemporary Painting presents the latest works of six artists whose individual practices involve, although not solely, painting. Collectively there is great diversity amongst these artists’ works and each artist in the exhibition was selected to present the multifarious approaches to painting being explored by contemporary artists.
The exhibition will include figurative paintings by Jelena Telecki, semi abstracts by Julian Hooper and Tonee Messiah, conceptual abstract work by what and Simon Blau as well as non-objective painted objects by Suzie Idiens.
