Masculinity is not something given to you, but something you gain. And you gain it by winning small battles with honour.” Norman Mailer 1961

Notions of acquired and inherent masculinity are constantly being played out in Julian Meagher’s work and the paintings in this exhibition are no exception. Staying loyal to his attraction to surface imagery and ongoing narrative, Meagher presents his subjects removed from their diverse and complex histories, and amasses these specimens as isolated entities for our contemplation.
