Epic exhibit

This photograph Natural Selection by Patricia Piccinini is part of Lismore Regional Gallerys Epic exhibition. Check out the branchial arches on the side of her neck. We are all fish.

This Friday, November 24, Lismore Regional Gallery opens its final exhibition for the year, Epic. And epic it is, with the works of six Australian artists who look at the cultural significance and enduring attraction of the ocean in Australian life. The six, in their distinctive ways, examine environmental issues, social traditions, the tribalism of surf culture and the raw power and beauty that lives where the sea meets the land.

The six featured artists are Tracey Moffatt, Patricia Piccinini, Scott Redford, Tim Hixson, Roger Scott and Fiona Lowry.

Curator Jason Smith (National Gallery of Victoria) said, The beach and the ocean provoke us to recall our stories... and inflame our desires for more; more freedom, air, heat, bodies, vitality, sensuality, connectedness to the organic world.

Epic will be opened at the gallery at 6pm this Friday, November 24, by Byron surf legend Rusty Miller. And therell be live surf music by Its Probably Us.

The exhibition will run until January 13.
