Humour of the Heart

Australian living treasure, Michael Leunig, in the wonderfully regressive yet complex style that he is known and loved for, champions the simple joys of human nature and the wider natural world: – a child with a flower, a wide embrace, a song.

An acclaimed cartoonist, writer, philosopher, painter and artist, Leunig’s career has spanned over fifty years. His work has been described – in the artist’s own words – as “messy, mystical and primal”, and often draws upon the things that Leunig loves most: nature; talking to strangers in the street; walks in the local park; morning coffees.

Leunig’s prints, paintings and drawings have been exhibited broadly, and are currently held in both public and private collections.

Elizabeth Banfield / Kati Thamo

Jan 27 10:00 amFeb 15 5:00 pm

Exhibition dates: Jan 27, – Feb 15, 2021
Official opening: Jan 31, 3 pm – 5 pm, 2021

Fragility and fable come together in this beautifully delicate exhibition of the works of Elizabeth Banfield and Kati Thamo. The complexity of the natural world and ever-changing landscape is celebrated by both artists as they tell the story of their own, individual relationship to nature and memory. Where Banfield’s layered linocuts of tissue paper and thread weave an intricate tale of life, death and the interconnectedness of all things, Thamo’s etchings create small scenarios wherein birds, animals and plants interact – each image its own miniature theatre where the mystery, frailty, hopefulness and anxiety of life can be enacted.
