Art, life, and our surrounds

You may not have realised it, but the Lethbridge Gallery has a second venue in Bulimba. Both galleries have a strong history of committment to artistic diversity and supporting emerging artists.

The Bulimba gallery is now showing works from three artists whose stories about our connections to and interactions with the everyday world will make you think. Lindy Sale, James Ainslie, and Roy Martin explore dimensions of uncertainty, change and reflection in our existence in daily life.

Lindy Sales' works in this exhibition can be characterised by ambiguity and by being open to interpretation, and this is characteristic of her paintings over the last twenty years. An award winning artist, Lindy studied at Griffith University and exhibits both paintings and three-dimensional pieces.

Of her paintings, Sale says:

"I aim to explore ambiguity rather than to make a definitive statement, to suggest the fragile balance between human activity and nature."

James Ainslie

James Ainslie has been painting professionally for almost fifty years, and in that time has been featured in many national and international exhibitions. He says that while his paintings tend to start as realistic interpretations, as he works on them his senses are inspired by different aspects of the environments he is depicting and the completed work reflects this. These inspirations bring a willingness to experiment with other media beyond from his usual acrylics.

" I have always been eclectic in my sources of inspiration....the light, smells, sounds and presence all contribute to the individual essence of what triggered the inspiration."

Roy Martin

Roy has had a long and interesting professional career as an artist, being both exhibited in the Brisbane Museum as well as later being employed as an artist for the Townsville Bulletin.

An extraordinarily patient artist, his still life and portraiture often involved "taking many days to paint a brief moment, so the viewer has time to enjoy it for hours."

"People can spend many hours travelling to great sights and wonders. The feeling of excitement and wonder is worth all the effort. However, daily life is full of not so wonderful moments, object and surrounding that are common to us all. My work is an examination of these different moments, and the thinking that lies behind them."


Bus numbers 230 and 232 will drop you off a short walk from the gallery. Max Brenner and Oxford 152 are both a short walk away on Oxford Street, if you're looking forward a chocolate or cocktail fix after the exhibition.
