Opening night: Friday 1 December, 6pm - 8pm
On view: 1 - 16 December
Artist Talk: 16 December, 1pm - 2pm

For his debut solo exhibition with Wester Gallery, Australian artist Heath Nock brings us ‘SMILE’. Presenting a fresh series of sectional perspective paintings, navigating through landscapes and capturing stilllife’sadorned with toys. Progressing onto blocks of rich hues, at times concluding with the inclusion of meticulous patterning. Playful colours invite the viewer to focus into the image while the forms move you into a thinking state, where the question of “what is happening” is met.

Nock was the recent recipient of the 2023 Guy Warren Emerging Artist Award at the Mossman Art Prize.
