We are pleased to present two new paintings and one new limited edition print by Aldo Bellemo (nos 1-2 and 9). The artist says about his works: "My adopted city of Melbourne, where I have lived for over fifty years, is evolving not only demographically but also physically. New buildings are erected; old buildings are demolished; some are iconic and have a story to tell. That's where I come in to show that story and give some sense to that landscape. I work from sketches done in situ, photographs, and preliminary studies. I research the significance of the buildings and how they are placed in their immediate surroundings; and then I place a solitary figure to give a sense of place. These figures are neither bitter nor ironic. Instead they are comfortable in their place. The city of Melbourne will be my inspiration for many years to come."
The exhibition is open until December 17.
