Noel McKenna - Lismore Regional Gallery

Noel McKenna's work is included in From Here to There: Australian art and walking, an exhibition at Lismore Regional Gallery which explores the everyday act of walking.

Noel McKenna works in a variety of media, including oil, enamel and watercolour, lithography and etching, ceramic and metal. He produces offbeat depictions of everyday scenes, often including displaced objects, people and animals. His spare canvases hint at narratives beyond the picture plane, often movingly depicting the relationship between humans and animals.

The artist has stated that the exhibition is "In tribute to my mother, Dorothy Jean Croft (1938 - 2010), on the 80th anniversary of her birth. A passionate archivist, Dorothy was a talented craft-maker, amateur photographer & dedicated writer. Witty & whip-smart, she was also mercurial & had been since childhood. She was a complex person who taught me many important things: honesty, integrity & social justice. I miss her every day."

Rubaba Haider, You are my Shams (Rumi) I, 2017, gouache on Fabriano paper, 32 x 35.5cm

Rubaba Haider at 2018 India Art Fair

Rubaba Haider's work is currently showing at the 2018 India Art Fair in New Delhi. Haider redefines traditional Hazara techniques of weaving and embroidery, using conventional materials in an unorthodox way. Threads, tears and fabric wefts tell a story of the upheavals that the artist has experienced in her life: the delicate intricacy revealing the fragility and strength of ties that bind people and communities together.
Her work was featured in an associated article for the Fair, 10 artworks from the 10th Edition of the India Art Fair you would want to own, which details the ten artworks that were considered the most impactful, both in terms of the themes explored and the material nature of the work.
