Luke Sciberras

West of the Darling, Works on paper

24 May - 18 June 2016

For several years Luke Sciberras has beaten a regular path to outback NSW where the vast expanses of red earth and saltbush meet the long winding and struggling Darling River. Paintings and drawings gleaned here are the raw materials from which he extracts the painterly nuances that form his larger studio works that are gestated over months, between expeditions to the source.

Whether it is the central desert of the Northern Territory, the north coast of NSW, the escarpments of Gallipoli or the white heat of the Australian outback Sciberras finds painterly adventure in the new and in the revisited.

West of the Darling (works on paper) is Luke’s first exhibition with King Street Gallery, with a large-scale painting exhibition scheduled for April 2017.
