The works in this exhibition by Mike Lutz rise out of the disquieting period from which we are emerging. Each painting considers an aspect of confinement and release.
From the end of 2019 into the beginning of 2020, bushfires ravaged much of the country. The aftermath left a devastating impact on people and land. Thoughts of recovery seemed far from our control.
