Craig Handley: Exits - exhibition opening

Craig Handley has created a distinctive and unsettling body of work.

Piermarq is proud to present Exits, the latest body of work by Sydney-based artist Craig Handley.

It’s hard to mistake a painting by Craig Handley. In the past few years he has created a distinctive and unsettling body of work. At a first glance they seem simple enough, with what seems like iconography of the ordinary; suburban houses, common birds like magpies, seagulls and mynahs, beach houses, the prosaic act of mowing the lawn – even the plane is nothing spiffy but an ordinary Cessna. Sometimes there seems a touch of satire to some of his works. But all is not what it seems.

It’s obvious it would be a mistake to take what seems the ordinary in Craig Handley’s work at face value. Underneath is a complex, even ominous view of a world we take for granted. It is a significant achievement of a strongly individual talent.

Words by Louis Nowra, Australian writer, playwright, screenwriter and librettist.

Exits opens on Wednesday 20 June, 6 – 8pm, and runs until Saturday 14 July 2018.
