Halinka Orszulok’s latest exhibition opened at Flinders Street Gallery a couple of weeks ago. This series of eerie night time landscapes are painted from photographs taken around her home town on the South Coast.
There is a sense of irony that these public spaces are lit for safety, yet the lights seem to deepen the darkness and sense of foreboding. The lack of figures also brings a strange sense of calm to the paintings.
The exhibition continues until December 8th. Get along a check it out, or check out the online catalogue.
