INFORMATION

What happens to the imagination that escapes capture?

What happens to all the unexpressed thoughts, all the hope and dreams that remain unfulfilled?

In this series the artist takes famous objects of jewellery and art, symbols of status and wealth and uses them as subject matter to explore the boundaries between painting and drawing. Decorative sculpture is deconstructed, the door to the House of Faberge is kicked down, it’s priceless eggs reduced to little more than Kinder Surprise for oligarchs and plutocrats.

Andrew Ensor is a Sydney based artist who’s drawing practice uses pen and acrylic on paper to create a unique language of visual themes, poetry and metaphysics. This is his 35th solo exhibition.
