A show by James Guppy, one of Australia’s most notable painters of small, exquisitely executed, evocative paintings and large mythic tableaux, will open with a sit-down feast at Mullumbimby’s Art Piece Gallery on Thursday July 10.
Between 2009 and 2011 Guppy’s powerful and enigmatic narrative-based paintings travelled to eleven different locations in Australia in a solo show.
And due to his commitments to his representative galleries, this is the first time in the 25 years that the longtime local is exhibiting locally.
Guppy spent many years in the US as adjunct professor of arts and media at Long Island University and has lectured extensively in the UK and Australia. Guppy’s subject matter includes surreal moments, formidable women, anthropomorphic beings and mythic animals.
The Secrets of Dark Contemplation will be open to the public from Thursday July 10, 6pm–7pm.
Bookings for the feast can made on 6684 3446.
