Exhibiting from 18 Jan to 26 Feb 2022, Boroondara Arts presents the works of three visual artists at the Town Hall Gallery, 360 Burwood Road, Hawthorn. Featured are artists Sue-Ann Roll, Ali Choudhry and Irene Henning. The one thing these artists share are the omission of colour in creating their portraits which are rich in tonal complexity. The exhibition includes graphite portraits of Boroondara locals frozen in a moment by Melbourne based artist Sue-Ann Roll. She has 11 portraits that feature a fellow artist, her dentist, a local fisherman and more. She uses tone to explore the ridges of time on the faces of her subjects and capture the essence of their character as she sees it.

Also featured in the exhibition are the ethereal photographs of Ali Choudhry that explores the relationship between time and the human form. Currently working towards his BA (Honours) degree in photography at RMIT University, Ali's practice explores relationships with ourselves, each other and the world around us. Ali's work has been shortlisted for the William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize, Incinerator Award, Robyn Beeche Foundation Award, and more.

Irene Henning's drawings employ dramatic tonal effects, close-up compositions and bold lighting that breaths life into her subjects and draws in the viewer. Living and working in Kew, Irene is a self-taught emerging artist, primarily drawing on paper, more recently moving toward graphite and charcoal to draw in a more hyper-realistic style. Her work shows how much complexity there can be in the simplicity of black and white.
