Why Painting and Why Photorealism?

An exhibition by Canberra artist Patrick Larmour

When: Wednesday 11 April 6pm, and continues until 29 April

Where: ANCA Gallery, 1 Rosevear Place, Dickson

Why Painting and Why Photorealism? at ANCA Gallery presents a survey of recent work from Patrick Larmour that places painting with sculptural installation, video and commercially manufactured pieces. Exploring the various relationships our-selves, as bodies, have to time and our environments through depictions of ephemeral, mundane consumer objects such as; torches, medication, cutlery, gloves, and makeup. These objects lay claims on our bodies through touch and our lives through extended use. Often, they are objects that are part of life despite ourselves, reflecting necessary and unavoidable needs outside of choice as much as the fulfilment of desires.
