Home is thrilled to be exhibiting a suite of works by renowned painter Chris Capper in our 08.05.19 exhibition. Many thanks to Damien Minton for loaning us the Chris Capper paintings for the show.

“…Chris Capper’s painting is focussed on the nexus between representational still life painting and the metaphysical aspect of formalist abstraction. Many of the works have gone through manifestations over a number of years, creating a ‘ghosting’ of previous aesthetic decisions…”

Born in Melbourne, Chris studied painting at the Western Australian Institute of Technology (now Curtin University) in the early 1970s. He has exhibited regularly in both Perth and Sydney for over thirty years. Now based in Newcastle, Chris Capper was acknowledged with a survey exhibition at the Maitland Regional Art Gallery in 2007. Capper’s works are held in the Alexander Library, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Goulburn Regional Art Gallery, Macquarie University, Manly Art Gallery, University of Western Australia and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
