Madeleine makes paintings that contemplate connections between place and human activity, belief and longing. Catherine’s Handstand observes a short moment in time, originally captured more than sixty years ago. Reproduced as a sequence of consecutive oil paintings, the exhibition gently considers inherited memory, the human urge to capture an image, and painting as a devotional act.

The exhibition will be officially opened by Artist and Head of Painting at the Victorian College of the Arts, Dr Raafat Ishak.
