Sophie Gannon Gallery Melbourne Until 10 November, 2018
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
