ESP Gallery presents two very talented local artists who have joined forces for "The Inner West Trading Co." .... A stunning exhibition by Adam Galea (sculptor) and Patrick O'Rourke (portraits).
From Sat 1 Nov to Sun 16 Nov.
Both artists have created and exhibited extensively in the Marrickville area and exemplify the varied and diverse range of artwork that is to be found within the local community.
While their work comes from two distinct backgrounds and continents, combined in one space, they’ll create an exciting exploration of similar themes such as adversity, human interaction, the mutability of memory, deterioration, loss, life and tactility.
Adam's small sculptures have received popular acclaim for some time, but this year his transition into larger works won him the Rockdale Sculpture Prize. ESP is honoured to show his prize-winning work in our sculpture garden and his smaller works inside.
Patrick's drawings are emotive vignettes of life condensed into monochrome images drawn with photorealism techniques, on found pieces of wood, or even discarded furniture. Patrick's works have been featured recently at Addison Rd markets with his depictions of refugees who settled in the Marrickville area long ago. He studied Fine Arts at Staffordshire Uni (UK) before moving to Australia, where he has taught art in Bathurst and in Marrickville.
