Showing at Tweed Regional Gallery
18 October 2023 - 28 April 2024
Light & Life rings together still life paintings by Margaret Olley from public and private collections alongside new work by three contemporary Australian painters – Laura Jones, India Mark and Mirra Whale.
By special invitation, Jones, Mark and Whale have created new work in response to objects from the re-creation of Olley’s home studio and to a selection of paintings by Olley from various decades in her enduring career.
Mirra Whale is a Sydney based artist who explores everyday, 'banal and commonplace' subjects and presents them from another angle. Her artworks explore the formal and conceptual limits of the genre of still life.
Mirra Whale has been a finalist in several art prizes including the Dobell Drawing Prize, Fishers Ghost Art Award, Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and the Portia Geach Memorial Award.
