Presented by Michael Reid Art Bar + Sydney
30 September - 30 October 2022
Curated by Michael Reid Art Bar Gallery Manager, Dean Andersen, and staged across Art Bar and Michael Reid Sydney; Painting Now is showcasing the next generation of painters. These diverse new voices in painting are pushing the medium to brave new heights. These are the painters to watch closely.
Painting Now crackles with experiment and forward-leaning technique.
These artists are pushing themselves in distinctively unique styles and directions.
Herein lies the narrative that forms a cohesion within this eclectic exhibition.
Dean states, ‘These are artists that I have admired and wanted to work with for quite some time. Seeing these works combined shows us the soul of what painting truly stands for’.
Painting Now is including the works of fourteen leading Australian and International artists: Arash Chehelnabi, Jedda-Daisy Culley, Chris Dolman. Marc Etherington, Sam Field, Kaspar Kägi, Belem Lett, Gavin Lynch, Robert Malherbe, Bundit Puangthong, Lucy Roleff, Billy Vanilli, Ben Waters, and Brett Weir.
