"The man behind some of the most stunning male art in the world" - GayStarNews London
Presented by: Ross Watson
 
26 Jan – 10 Feb
Sat - Sun 11am - 5pm
Ross Watson Gallery, 465 Nicholson St, Carlton North

Preview this captivating exhibition of paintings before it exhibits in New York City for World Pride and the Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall.

"In my current series of paintings, I'm seeking to balance realism and fantasy, conviction and irony, with the aim to reveal the paradoxes and mystery at work within reality." - wrote Watson

Travel continues to inform Watson's art - from classical paintings he's seen in the Louvre Museum, to Queens Guards he's photographed in London. On returning to his Melbourne studio, the artworks evolve, with his visual inventions fusing the homoerotic with classical imagery and contemporary vignettes found in daily life.
