Exit and Return

Simon Grennan - Postponed 

This exhibition will be rescheduled for 2021.

A masterly re-interpretation of the landscapes of the Australian impressionists. Artist and lecturer Simon Grennan teaches painting, drawing, printmaking and contemporary art practice at Deakin University. 

In Exit and Return Grennan revisits the 19th Century narrative of being ‘lost’ in the Australian bush, as epitomised by Frederick McCubbin’s enchanting painting Lost, from 1886.

Grennan’s paintings are masterly re-interpretations of sublime bush scenes by the Australian Impressionists, however,  
they trigger a level of tension and enquiry that gallery visitors shouldn’t miss.
