MICHAEL VALE
The Traveller

Wednesday 6 March 5.30PM

 

“Every time I lift a paintbrush I feel a continuum with every painter, past present and future. For me, paintings are always alive, offering us glimpses into parallel universes. In this context, making my work seems like time travel, a passport to the vast variety of planets that make up the galaxy of painting. Here time is elastic, interchangeable and, ultimately, a mirage!” – Michael Vale, January 2019

Michael Vale is a Melbourne-based painter and film maker whose work gravitates towards the gothic and the absurd.  Michael won the Hutchins Australian Contemporary Art Prize in 2018 and is currently a senior lecturer at the School of Fine Art, Monash University.

Join us and the artist Wednesday 6 March at 5.30pm for a celebratory drink!
