May Space
409b George Street, Waterloo NSW 2017
When

Tuesdays to Saturdays, 10am to 5pm Sundays, 12pm to 4pm Wednesday 29 January to Sunday 16 February

This suite of paintings explores the back streets of Sydney's Eastern Suburbs where a gritty working class history and village charm lingers despite the gloss of gentrification and the encroachment of high-rise development.

Kevin enjoys finding ready-made compositions in urban environments and applies the formal concerns of compositional design with the particularity of place as he seeks a theatrical intensity in the ordinary.

Stillness and transience compliment each other in his road-based paintings where architectural forms provide a fixed point in contrast with the flux of light; a momentarily parked car; or randomly placed 'street furniture' (wheelie bin, witches hat, road sign etc); or indeed the conduit of the road itself, a constant in the ever changing city.

Exhibition opening drinks, Saturday 1st February 2020, 3-5pm
