Happy New Year and Year of the Rooster for 2017!
My work has been curated into three upcoming group exhibitions in Queensland as listed below:

‘Nine Lives’, Heiser Gallery, 21 Feb- 18 Mar, 2017.

‘The Dust Never Settles’, University of Queensland Art Museum, 13 April -30 July, 2017.
The saying ‘once the dust settles’ is essentially optimistic. It assumes that present difficulties will be resolved and that a better future beckons. However, not all difficulties diminish, while some lie dormant only to reappear. This exhibition centres on works by contemporary artists who probe at cultural, environmental and psychological histories that remain unresolved. Others reflect on traditions that reverberate or are threatened.
All works are drawn from The University of Queensland Art Collection and include recent acquisitions by artists such as Gordon Bennett, Susan Fereday, Dale Harding, Emma Lindsay, Angelica Mesiti, Caroline Rothwell, James Tylor, Judy Watson and Mumu Mike Williams.
Curator: Michele Helmrich
