For Sydney Contemporary 2023, Two Rooms will showcase the work of five of our represented artists: Gretchen Albrecht, Matt Arbuckle, Conor Clarke, Jude Rae and Elizabeth Thomson. Recent years have seen these artists secure commercial and critical achievements both within New Zealand and abroad.

They are various in their media of choice, with large scale abstract paintings by Albrecht and Arbuckle, finely detailed artworks executed by Rae and Thomson that blur the boundaries between still life and the real world, with Thomson producing works that capture the startling marvels of nature in an aesthetically compelling manner. Finally, photographer Clarke created a beautifully haunting and elegiac series that remind the viewer of the importance of our relationship to the natural world.
