My Neighbours’ Gardens

Aloma Treister
fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria

The flowers and plants that Treister choose to paint spoke to her on a personal level, symbolizing the months of lockdown, and a celebration of the beauty that only nature can produce.

Richard Besley
fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria

Ming Chung
