Matthew Browne, Bec Juniper, Al Poulet, Melinda Schawel, Llewellyn Skye

This group exhibition encompasses impressive - large scale - new works recently consigned by gallery artists with a focus on New Zealand artist, Matthew Browne. The exhibited artists all approach painting from different directions, however each boldly embraces large format in their painting practice. Together these works present an exhibition rich with ideas and motifs and energise the gallery space with their sense of scale. Viewers are encouraged to immerse themselves in these paintings and explore the skills and distinct aesthetic language of each highly acclaimed artist.     

The gallery looks forward to featuring a dynamic selection of Matthew Browne's geometric abstractions within the show. Through painting, Browne endeavours to “make visible those metaphorical images and sensations that normally reside in the unconscious”.  Matthew Browne has exhibited widely in New Zealand and, more recently, Australia. His work has been hung as a finalist in major awards in New Zealand and is held by collections in New Zealand, Australia, USA, UK, Denmark and Singapore.
