PORCELAINE
ROBERT HAGUE

25 MAY - 29 JUNE

OPENING
TBC - May 2019


In Porcelaine Hague takes on a succession of iconic Australian artworks referencing colonial to modern imagery. Each is reconfigured, transported into a contemporary reading and rendered in exquisite detail using an old world stone lithographic process. These images of broken decorative porcelain plates, sometimes repaired using kintsugi (a gold highlighting of the trauma), depict cultural time-travellers (Ned Kelly shooting Captain Cook), modernist sculptures (Ron Roberson-Swann's Vault) and displaced gold miners (Down on his luck), each re-contextualised into an often biting critique on contemporary society.
