Melbourne Art – Once Upon A Weekend at Metro Gallery

December 10, 2011toDecember 11, 2011

 

* MELBOURNE

Once Upon A Weekend – A Mini Exhibition. By David Laity.

  • Saturday 10 & Sunday 11 December 2011

David Laity’s iconic nude figures have taken a back seat in his latest show to be exhibited at Metro Gallery. This mini-series of work focuses on dogs, birds, grasshoppers and clouds. Depicted with the oil on hessian technique associated with Laity’s paintings, this body of work presents the artist’s increasing connection to nature, “I wish I could articulate my work intellectually as other artist’s seem to do with ease. Yet I’ve always found it difficult. I simply paint what I’m attracted to. Nature has stepped forth.”

The paintings from this mini-exhibition have been described as ‘good natured’ portraits of fauna and the environment, with a hint of Laity’s suggestive subject matter – a fascinating development in the artist’s work. The exhibition will run Saturday 10th – Sunday 11th December, with the artist available in the gallery both days.
