Exhibition Announcement – John Kelly: The Lazarus Series

June 21, 2022

John Kelly: The Lazarus Series will open on Monday 20 June at 30 Queen Street, Woollahra. 

During the past two and a half decades, John Kelly has developed a distinguished reputation in Australia and internationally for his work which combines his unique intellect and humour.  Featuring 16 new works, the present exhibition includes major paintings and sculptures that include the most prominent motifs in his oeuvre.  In the artist's words, it marks the moment 'the kangaroo met the cow – a marriage of old ideas with new ideas and everything in-between.'

Born from adversity, John Kelly: The Lazarus Series shows Kelly's renowned sense of humour and irreverent 'culture-jamming' are as fierce as ever in his practice.  It will be open to the public Monday-Friday, 10 am – 5 pm, 20 June – 8 July 2022 at 30 Queen Street, Woollahra.
