Redcliffe Art Gallery

Intimate Immensity is an exhibition of works by Australian artist, Ian Friend. Friend’s works are an exploration of materials, combining layers of ink, gouache, crayon, and pencil.

They are both intimate and vast. They also reflect his passion for jazz, classical music, poetry, and architecture.

Intimate Immensity will feature works on paper alongside new paintings and sculptures from the past five years.

Friend has exhibited extensively and has work in international and Australian public collections, including:

  • The British Museum
  • the Tate
  • National Gallery of Australia
  • National Gallery of Victoria
  • Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art
  • University of Sunshine Coast Art Collection; and
  • City of Moreton Bay among others.

This exhibition is a partnership with the University of the Sunshine Coast Art Gallery, The Condensery and City of Moreton Bay Art Galleries.
