An MPRG exhibition
30 November – 17 February 2019
Obsession: Devil in the detail examines our fascination with the meticulous and micro, the real and the hyperreal and brings together a range of historical and contemporary works under three broad themes of still life, portraiture and landscape. Featuring artworks that seduce us with the power of their realism and intricate detail, the devil in the detail becomes the ideas and concepts that exist beneath the surface.
From iconic American photorealist Audrey Flack’s stunning large-scale still life paintings to Sam Jinks’ hauntingly beautiful hyperrealist sculpture Woman and child, Obsession: Devil in the detail brings together 65 works across sculpture, painting, photography, drawing and video.
Featuring work by local and international artists including Natasha Bieniek, Chris Bond, Christian Capurro, Erin Coates, Audrey
Flack, Juan Ford, James Gleeson, Lucien Henry, Sam Jinks, Jess Johnson, Anna Kristensen, eX de Medici, Tully Moore, Callum Morton, Jan Nelson, Drew Pettifer, Patricia Piccinini, Tom Roberts, Henry Short, Sandra Selig, Vipoo Srivilasa, Nick Stathopoulas, Ricky Swallow, teamLab and Eugene von Guérard.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a full colour catalogue and a series of podcasts with exhibiting artists.
