Tricking the eye—contemporary trompe l’oeil

26 November 2016 to 12 February 2017

Drawing on the centuries-old tradition of trompe l’oeil painting (or ‘trick of the eye’), this exhibition brought together the work of a number of contemporary Australian artists whose paintings, sculptures and moving images are intentionally illusionistic, play with perspective or are something other than what they first appear to be. Includes works by Chris Bond, Daniel Crooks, Georgina Cue, Gregory Hodge, Jess Johnson, Jan Murray, Ricky Swallow and Anne Zahalka, as well as commissioned works specifically for the exhibition by Colleen Ahern and Tully Moore, Stephen Bowers and John R Neeson.
