I’m proud to announce Another Day in Oceania, an exhibition of new paintings at TDF COLLECT in Melbourne.

Open from 12 to 18 March 2015

TDF Collect
87 Albert St
Brunswick, VIC

Opening night 12 March 2015, 6.00pm – 8.00pm.

This exhibition utilises the vehicle of landscape painting to explore ideas about the conflict between native and invasive species, and more specifically, the relationship between birds and cats – a relationship that poses a a serious threat to native wildlife in Australia. While Fred does refer to his works as landscape paintings, he believes the scenes he creates are more concerned with the beings that inhabit the land rather than the land itself. The paintings in this series also convey the growing divide between civilisation and nature, and the clash of urban and remote cultures.
