Shades Within Melbourne Part 2

Artist Toby Matheson’s new exhibition, Shades Within Melbourne Part 2, explores perceptions of sexuality and the sex industry in Melbourne through the eyes of a person with a physical disability.

  • Opening event on Thursday 30 November 2017, 6 to 8pm at G3 Artspace, Shirley Burke Theatre, 64 Parkers Road, Parkdale
  • Exhibition runs from 1 December 2017 to 4 January 2018

Toby Matheson’s paintings juxtapose portraits of ‘working girls’ with iconic scenes of Melbourne to expose the hidden aspects of urban life. Matheson’s use of block colours, layering of figure and landscape and the three dimensional quality of the paint’s texture brings these portraits to life.

Shades Within Melbourne Part 2 is supported by Kingston Arts and Arts Access Victoria (AAV).
