Presented in association with Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery

For The Long Kiss Goodbye six artists transforms familiar materials and symbols into complex meditations on attraction, repulsion, loss and hope. The exhibition takes its name from a major work by Sydney-based artist Sarah Contos, which combines fragments from nearly a decade of artistic practice into a surreal, cinema-screen sized quilt.
In conversation with this epic patchwork are paintings that explore pathos and transcendence, jewelry that contains the ashes of an artist’s visual diaries and a series of poignant textile works made by an artist-in-residence at a community funeral home.”
