A solo exhibition of new work by Marcus Keating. Contemporary self-portraiture that tells stories of an Australian childhood, fusing queer culture and a dislocated sense of place.
Painting here is limp and crumpled, clinging to, or fleeing from the stretcher and wall. Bruised rainbow canvases imparted with whispers of biographical truths.
Pastel hanging doorways and propped signposts are markers that point to early trauma and threads common to all human life.
