The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

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!
