Urban Myths: Recent Lithographs

17 February - 18 March

Regional Victoria Touring Exhibition

Artist talk 11.00 Wednesday 28 February

Recent lithographs of evocative cityscapes. Clinch's striking imagery transports the viewer to a fictional but hauntingly real world filled with tales of loneliness, joy, injustice, humour, melancholy and whimsy.

Clinch paints entirely from drawings, executed plein-air, often at numerous locations and then adapted for composition in the studio. The same fastidious approach has produced these beautifully hand-drawn limited-edition lithographs.

Spring Collection: Heloise & Hildegarde

18 February - 7 March

Heloise & Hildegarde evokes a meeting of 20s flappers and 40s swing in an edgy exploration of contemporary femininity. The collection features silhouette sculpting silk with contour fringing in hues of duckegg blue, vintage copper, mushroom, rose, gold and black, melding with organza and calico in a twist of couture. The artist describes the work in these terms: 'gentle and unassuming, elegant and simple, quiet magnificence, luminous grace'.

Preview the collection before its showing at Sydney Fashion Week in March 2007. The artist is one of ten emerging designers selected to present their work in 'Fashion Exposed'.

The collection was developed with the support of a New Work Grant from Regional Arts Victoria.
