Alex Zubryn: The Urban Experience: People, Nature and Place

11 September 2013-19 October 2013


Deakin University Art Gallery (Melbourne Burwood Campus)

This survey of Alex Zubryn's paintings immerses us in the complexity of urban scenes and vibrant community life as he experiences them. Zubryn identifies with urban environments, creating a psychological response to the inhabitants - animate and inanimate - of his locale. Included are images that remind us of the landforms that co-exist within the city and trees that seem vulnerable in relation to the built environment.
