We are thrilled to be exhibiting two sculptural works by Angela Brennan in our ‘Colour & Form’ exhibition opening on Thursday 1st of March.

Based in Melbourne, Angela Brennan’s practice incorporates a range of media including painting, drawing and ceramics. She incorporates both abstraction and figuration in her work, and has a varied approach to subject matter, informed by classical and contemporary sources.

In 2017 her work has been included in Shut up and Paint at the National Gallery of Victoria, and the National Gallery of Australia’s touring exhibition Abstraction: celebrating Australian women abstract artists. She has been awarded numerous overseas residencies, most recently the Australia Council studio at the British School of Rome and Artist in Residence at The University of Sydney Archaeological Excavations of the Paphos Theatre Site, Cyprus. Her work is widely represented in major public and private collections in Australia and overseas.
