In Laura White‘s newest collection of exquisitely composed paintings, vibrant poppies and delicately cascading camellias coalesce with effortless elegance. White’s layered approach to oil painting imbues her work with tonal depth, beautiful lustre and textural nuance, lending an element of sumptuousness that sits in counterpoise with her subjects’ natural, unfettered forms.

We are excited to welcome back Laura White to Murrurundi for the first time since her sell out exhibition, Primavera in 2023.

We are delighted to announce the return of Narrabri-based painter Brooke Dalton, whose richly expressive new suite of colour-soaked interior vignettes is now available to preview and require by request.

Conjured via gestural sweeps of impasto paint in lush garden pinks, greens and purples, Dalton’s gorgeous still-life paintings present a bounty of fresh-cut flowers arranged in a spirit of bohemian insouciance and whimsy on tables teeming with books and other curios.

The air of effortless, lived-in eclecticism and warm elegance that colours the spaces Dalton depicts is perfectly matched by her loose, energetic, exuberant painting style, which eschews overwrought detail in favour of movement, life, atmosphere and emotion.

From deep-magenta peonies and creamy dahlias to succulents spilling out of painted Chinoiserie vessels, the artfully undone arrangements at the centre of each painting feel like a perfect distillation of the mood and character of the libraries, living rooms and other uplifting spaces that surround them.

The latest series of paintings by Eora/Sydney artist Fiona Smith breaks open an omnibus of classic fables and recasts familiar myths with a fabulous flock of feathered subjects.

Fractured Fairy Tales is a vibrant adventure through storybook favourites – from Sleeping Beauty to The Princess and the Pea – all brought to life with the artist’s signature flair, lavish decorative details and close observations of Australia’s charismatic birdlife.

Striking dramatic poses against backdrops layered with sumptuous patterns, Smith’s literary heroes and heroines flaunt lashings of charisma and instil tales as old as time with new life and Antipodean flavour.

Works from Fractured Fairy Tales can now be veiewd at our Murrurundi gallery.

After being thrust into major art collector conversations in 2022, when the Art Gallery of NSW selected her as a finalist in both the Archibald Prize and Wynne PrizeJulianne Ross Allcorn makes Michael Reid Murrurundi debut with an exhibition of paintings conjuring magical impressions of the Australian landscape. In these utterly original works, charismatic critters are glimpsed through overlapping flora and wispy layers of eucalyptus against smatterings of glitter and areas of exposed plywood.

“From top to bottom, left to right, Allcorn’s paintings read as if you are standing within a grove of native trees,” writes Michael Reid OAM of the exquisitely layered thickets of Australian bush brilliantly conjured by the artist with her fine, wisp-like strokes and smatterings of gold-flecked magic.

This exhibition immediately follows the artist’s sell-out show at Michael Reid Southern Highlands in April 2024.

    19 Jun—21 Jul 2024

We are excited to announce the return of Jo White with a new series of small-scale paintings, opening this week at Michael Reid Murrurundi.

Brightly coloured, brimming with humour and attuned to the way familiar objects become lodged in the cultural memory, Another Average Dictionary is the follow up exhibition to our 2023 show inspired by the satirical online newspaper The Betoota Advocate.
White’s new additions to the series share certain sensibilities with the satirical online newspaper, evoking its sardonic spin on sozzled machismo, suburban torpor and everyday peccadillos.

Where Betoota‘s wry reporting on bad behaviour captures contemporary archetypes with biting specificity, Another Average Dictionary affectionately transforms everyday objects into something similarly totemic – richly drawn, warmly nostalgic and with a sting of recognition that lets us laugh at our own foibles.

For a private preview of paintings in this exhibition please contact colinesoria@michaelreid.com.au
