New work by TANMAYA BINGHAM and WARATAH LAHY will be on view starting Tuesday 22 November. Please join the Artists for a drink to celebrate the launch of their solo exhibitions on Saturday 26 November from 4-6pm.
Tanmaya Bingham‘s new body of work titled ‘Countermanding Saturation‘ comprises six large-scale paintings and thirteen smaller works. The comical and the macabre interchange in these drawings, strive against what Bingham calls saturation, the ‘emotional, physical or intellectual stimulation’ of either the interior or exterior worlds.

The new paintings by Waratah Lahy continue to explore her ongoing fascination with the simplicity of the overlooked: people, places, light and colour. She finds inspiration in everyday scenes that are often lost in the deluge of contemporary visual culture.
