Fifty Skies
Group exhibition

A sky is a personal space, more than atmosphere. It can be idyllic, ominous or diasporic - a memory or an objective in the distance. The sky is where we look when answers are few and far in every other direction.
Exhibition dates: 21 June – 22 July

Kieran Butler
All we have left

Kieran Butler’s debut at Annandale Galleries takes the form of a heartening celebration, tempered with earnest revelations and messages that inspires quiet contemplation.
Kieran’s practice spans across fashion, design, performance, photography, text and textiles, examining intersections of photography, environmentalism and patchwork techniques within an ace-enby-trans framework.
Their work reflects on themes of queer identity and familial histories, accompanied by experiences of intimacy, vulnerability, self-awareness, love, desire and grief. Kieran contributes to the growing literature and visual history on ace-enby-trans lived experiences - resources that were not readily accessible to them as a young person.
Exhibition dates: 21 June – 22 July

Julie Harris
I will be good … promise

Julie Harris’ work speaks about relationships to the world and the history of painting. Through her studio practice she is equally at home using the medium of paint and the application of gestural, non-objective, style in both paintings and sculpture. Her work embraces unpredictability and erasure as key features, and through the mastery of diverse elements becomes a demonstration of power harnessed to vulnerability.
Exhibition dates: 26 July - 26 August 2023

Fiona Currey-Billyard
Dark Crossings

Fiona Currey-Billyard makes her official debut at Annandale Galleries with DARK CROSSINGS. Channelling nature and personal memory, she takes the viewer on an intimate journey through abstracted oceans of Australia and Papua New Guinea. Currey-Billyard uses various carbons, paints and shellacs to produce nuanced surfaces and evocative textures, often on stretched linen of a monumental scale. Simultaneously, they are embedded with nails and staples that act as markings for both ocean currents and layered memories of her past, particularly those shared with her father.  The punctured surfaces act as a way to communicate the kindness and cruelty of time on the body and our recollections. This unique act of mapping anchors itself to specific moments, people and places, but contains a comforting universality that arrests you, draws you in, enveloped by an indescribable force.
Exhibition dates: 26 July - 26 August 2023

Gunybi Ganambarr
Mali – the reflection / my spirit

Mark Wallinger
Threshold to the Kingdom

Mark Wallinger’s stunning video work, Threshold to the Kingdom, was at the prestigious Whitechapel Gallery when I was recently in London. It was part of a group exhibition called Life is More Important Than Art (that’s why Art is Important). The show was striking, to say the least. In it, artists of various disciplines (video, film, installation, painting) addressed the theme of hope and loss in a post-Covid world. Wallinger’s video was in the last room. It wasn’t the first time I’d seen it.
Exhibition dates: 13 September - 14 October 2023
