The first exhibition for 2020 is a David Spooner solo show.

Inspired by a punter wearing botanical printed fabric, on the 1st of January 2019, David Spooner embarked on a year-long project―to become better acquainted with Monstera Deliciosa. A popular 1970s tropical plant which thrives in Queensland, it is known for its delicious (although toxic) fruit and its ginormous size. Through the journalistic rendering of the plant each day, the plant assumed increased prominence in David’s life and over time David has come to more closely resemble his muse.

Please join us at the opening for celebratory drinks!
