Fiona McMona­gle is a Mel­bourne-based artist known for her wa­ter­colours that be­lie darker ref­er­ences to pedes­trian life in the sub­urbs. ‘The Week­end’ is an ex­hi­bi­tion of oil paint­ings and works on pa­per, which re­flect on uni­ver­sal ex­pe­ri­ences of the typ­i­cal week­end, and is McMona­gle’s first solo pre­sen­ta­tion at So­phie Gan­non Gallery.

‘Draw­ing upon my sub­ur­ban up­bring­ing I ex­plore the fa­mil­iar, I want to de­pict the am­bi­gu­ity of the known and per­ceived that make up our ur­ban land­scapes,’ says the artist. Vic­to­ria’s cat, 2018, oil on li­nen, 92 x 66.5cm Cour­tesy the artist and So­phie Gan­non Gallery, Mel­bourne
