Modern Times in Melbourne continues its stream of exhibitions by Australian artists that you will WANT to own! The next in line (opening Aug 25 – 18 Sept) is the wonderful Elizabeth Barnett and her latest collection “Interiors”.
The 24 painting offer real and imagined snapshots of rooms and the world of their inhabitants, all in Elizabeths painterly style and playful take on perspective.
The word interiors tends to conjure up the manufactured perfection of designer homes featured in glossy magazines and coffee table books, however, Elizabeth’s work reclaims the word ‘interiors’ and depicts a more truthful and sentimental interior which is full of life, warmth and creativity.
“Everything is relaxed about Elizabeth’s work – her compositions, fluid drawing style and choice of subject matter. It’s homely, warm and inviting”, says exhibition curator and Modern Times director Amy Malin.
