The beloved animals at Lucy Culliton’s farm in regional NSW feature in her first solo exhibition held at Jan Murphy Gallery. 'Bibbenluke Menagerie' is a collection of portrait paintings of these special friends, many of whom have been adopted and rescued.
Inspired by life in the country, Culliton is an artist imbued with the collector’s impulse to amass and record, a hunter who finds her treasures in the theatre of the everyday. A realist by temperament, Culliton extracts the objective truth from her chosen forms with accuracy and precision, but never at the cost of painterly expression. Culliton’s paintings are richly textured celebrations redolent with luscious colour, intricate pattern and the powerful rhythms of repetition.
