Urban Playground presents a new body of work by emerging artist Lucy Brewin. Approximately 20 works will be exhibited that present a deconstruction of the New York City landscape. Preoccupation with landscape and cityscape imagery is ever present in the history of art and this exhibition embodies how contemporary artists continue to reinterpret land and cityscapes. The works take on the artist’s own reminiscence of the city while creating a sense of nostalgia for viewers. Lucy’s watercolours are thoughtful representations of travels past and a New York state of mind.

The Artist

Lucy Brewin is an emerging visual artist. Lucy is based in Adelaide and completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the University of South Australia in 2010, majoring in textiles and screen printing. In 2011 Lucy made the first of two overseas trips around Europe and America. It was in Europe that she established her love of watercolour painting and a greater appreciation of landscapes and architecture. Since returning from her most recent overseas trip, Lucy's work has been focused on creating a collection that represents the great big world around her and the experiences that one can achieve through its exploration.

Coming Soon: Technicolour Dreaming

Curated by Caitlin Eyre | Featuring Amy McNamara

Showing 16 October until 11 November 2014
Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm daily

Exhibition Opening | 2 – 4 pm, Sunday 19 October.  All welcome.

Technicolour Dreaming presents a vibrant and eclectic series of watercolour and mixed media illustrations by emerging local artist Amy McNamara. The artist combines bright colours, ornate patterns and a delicate painting style to produce highly atmospheric and dreamlike depictions of both real and imagined worlds. Vividly coloured and gracefully rendered, this charming series brings light to the enchanting inner world of the artist, deftly blurring the boundaries between the realms of reality and the surreal.

The Artist

Amy McNamara is an Adelaide-based emerging designer and illustrator. She graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication) in 2010 before completing a Master of Design (majoring in illustration) in 2012. Amy has previously displayed her work at Greenhill Galleries and the University of South Australia’s graduate exhibitions. Her first solo exhibition Wonderland, was held at the Sub Rosa Shop and Gallery in 2014.
