Shorelines makes a debut, exhibiting a series of new collaborative paintings by Samantha Hobson, Rosella Namok, Fiona Omeenyo and Michael Eather. While the four artists have collaborated in a range of formats, new works feature combinations of Indigenous figures within surreal coastal landscapes, tumbling boulders and resting stones; ships, portals and an oceanic surge suggesting beguiling narratives unfolding with the mystery and chance of a blended artists’ country.

Associate Professor Sally Butler (University of Queensland) comments on the exhibition, “Recent paintings by four Queensland artists prompt us to think about shorelines as more than boundaries between water and land. They put a lens on shorelines as visual symbols of a collaborative mindset and a creative co-operative where waves of different ideas overlap and gently build into something new – something unexpected and fresh.”

Butler further comments, “Together they produce a powerful visual story set in a shoreline across different cultures.”
