featuring Pam Tippett28 October 2020 – Sunday 2 May 2021
Margaret Olley Art Centre, Murwillumbah
Margaret’s House includes some of the finest examples of Olley’s still lifes and interiors, from public and private collections, alongside new work by three contemporary Australian painters.
Nicholas Harding, Pam Tippett and Adam Pyett were invited to explore the re-creation of Margaret Olley’s home studio, and made new work in response to its intriguing interiors and the incredible collection of objects that Olley collected as subject matter for her paintings.
This intersection of Olley’s home studio, her paintings and the contemporary responses, presents a renewed context for Olley’s practice and the genre of still life painting in Australia today.
