While the sun burns behind the islands

27th August - 21st September

Jan Murphy Gallery

Jan Murphy Gallery is excited to present, ‘While the sun burns behind the islands’, a solo exhibition by Sydney artist Fiona Lowry. Lowry’s new exhibition demonstrates the artist’s continued use of haunting subject matter. Drawing upon the Australian landscape, archetypal dramas play out in dreamlike visions of the wilderness.

Fiona Lowry’s instrument of choice, the ‘airbrush’, delivers a lightness of touch, breathing spirit into portraits that have won her critical acclaim in the Archibald Prize 2014 and the 2008 Doug Moran National Portrait Prize. A regular exhibitor in the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman prizes, in 2013 Lowry won the Fleurieu Landscape Prize. Her work is held in a number of public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, the National Portrait Gallery, Artbank, the University of Queensland Art Museum and the Macquarie Bank Collection.
