Chiaroscuro is the treatment of light and shade for dramatic effect in drawing, painting and printmaking. It is the effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly or from a particular direction, on something or someone.
Chiaroscuro is thought to have originated before the Renaissance; this exhibition seeks to show the work of contemporary artists using this traditional practice.
Artists include Lorraine Biggs + Lila Meleisea, Tanmaya Bingham, Robert Boynes, Sybil Curtis, Doble & Strong, Shannon Doyle, Michael Edwards, Rachel Ellison, Todd Fuller, James Guppy, Waratah Lahy, Tasman Miller, Helen Mueller, Peter Nilsson, Sara Sweet and Lezlie Tilley.
