AUSTRALIA. A Private Collection – Artist's Choice: Michael Zavros
20/04/2013 12:19:03

 

Continuing the Artist's Choice series of exhibitions, Brisbane-based artist Michael Zavros was invited to work with the Gallery's Collection. Taking his own seductive, realist painting — Unicorn in the anticamera 2008 — as his point of departure, Zavros has cast contemporary beauty, decadence and ego in terms of possessions.

Works in a variety of media have been reimagined as the domestic trappings of an opulent designer lifestyle, representing a distinctive and successful character.
