Fiona Lowry

8 December 2018 - 10 February 2019

The bush lies deep in the Australian psyche – and in the heart of many of its painters. In Fiona Lowry’s dreamy renderings, the scrub pulses and hums with surface tension.

To ‘airbrush’ is to idealise, but as Lowry’s instrument of choice it delivers a lightness of touch, breathing spirit into portraits that have won her critical acclaim in the Archibald Prize 2014 and the 2008 Doug Moran National Portrait Prize

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
