Hollie McKenzie

In paintings by Hollie McKenzie historical and contemporary imagery collide. Simultaneously historical, surreal and contemporary, her paintings speak to the way in which virtual reality mediates our world. By using her young daughter as a sitter, the artists intends to highlight uncertainty in the face of potential futures.

The artist indicates that the application of paint is heavily influenced by the Rococo, in terms of light and a feeling of both delicacy and flamboyancy. While only in the early stages her career, Hollie exhibits an established understanding of oil paint and an aesthetic that could easily be situated alongside that of well known LA based Pop Surrealist artist such as Mark Ryden Marion Peck and Alex Gross.

Based in Whian Whina NSW, Hollie McKenzie has been placed as a finalist in national art prizes and is currently showing with Thom Gallery.

New Work - Josh Mackenzie

Josh Mackenzie studied Fine Art at East Sydney Technical College in the 1990’s, majoring in painting before completing his studies in philosophy at Macquarie University in 2000. Josh has been painting professionally since 2013 and alongside exhibiting nationally, has been shortlisted for many major Australian prizes.

Josh is best known for his psychedelic paintings (often of nudes) inspired by 60s and 70s pop culture. The artist embraces a technique reminiscent of Gerhard Richter, where wet oil paint is dragged across the surface of the canvas using a plasterer’s trowel. This gives his works a worn, hallucinogenic, filmic quality and evokes the Sublime.
