Marian Drew’s compelling photographs reference the wealth and privilege of early European still-life painting. She transports the structure & depth of colour to an Australian context with its odd assortment of animals and parched landscapes; ‘old world’ fabrics and tableware jostle with each other. The resulting images are loaded with melancholy and nostalgia; a sad reminder of what was left behind.
Conceits, extends Drew's concern with the dining table as she presents a new series of small sculptures made from timber, plaster, coral and bronze.
