“Growing up in a typical suburban Australian home in the 70’s, my first experience with paint was working with my father on the house. I recall my father painting a green figure on the side of a box with paint oozing onto the ground. This moment sat in my mind for years"- BRENDAN KELLY ​ ​'Salamander Sally'  120 x 120cm x 5cm acrylic and charcoal on plywood  ​ ​​​​​​ #​trafficjamgalleries

"These works are reminiscent of a bygone era. When we stayed in the sun all day, lathering our bodies with baby oil and ate lemonade icy poles. The car would be overloaded with kids and our legs would stick to the vinyl seat because of the heat. You would want to have a seat by the window so you could roll it down to feel the breeze against your skin. These works show an innocent and carefree time and place" – ELISE JUDD  ​ ​​ ​

'Man Series Five' 56 x 56 x 2cm acrylic on canvas $ 1,195.00 by Sydney based artist JUDE HOTCHKISS  ​ ​"During the recent lockdowns, my work became centered around family and home life. Digital sketching was a fast, experimental and fluid way of combining drawing with texture and colour. The faces can quickly become stretched and fragmented, but still, keep a sense of feeling and presence." – Jude  ​ ​​

Q & A – Talking with artist J VALENZUELA DIDI about his works, practice and new Solo Exhibition 'The Quiet Life' 24 Sept – 12 Oct.  ​ ​Q. Can you tell us what this new body of work is about and how it began? ​A. Most of the concepts for these paintings came about long ago. Over the years I’ve been building up a collection of images of figures that I have found interesting. I was revisiting these images around the time I was planning this exhibition and I found they had taken on a new life and meaning for me. That drew me to expand on that idea by displacing the figures in time and space into prevailing, yet ambiguous narratives. ​ ​
