Garry Pumfrey – The Born Again

10th May 2016 – 28th May 201

Garry Pumfrey’s first solo at FLG was a bleak portrayal of Melbourne’s Port Melbourne and heavily urbanized areas and was a critical and commercial success. His most recent solo at FLG in 2012 Obres Noves sold out as did his suite of paintings of Barcelona at the 2014 Melbourne Art Fair. He has continued to be immersed in the Barcelona art scene, the resulting body of works enticing us to join him in exploring the heart of the old city, Barris Gòtic, Born & Raval. United in darkness, we find Pumfrey drawn to capture these history laden yet clearly contemporary lanes.

Pumfrey has won the Town of Vincent Art Award, Peoples Choice Award at the City of Joondalup Invitational Art Award, and has taken out first prize twice at the Gascoyne Biennale and once at the Kalgoorlie Boulder Art Exhibition. He was awarded ArtsWA funding for his Melbourne and Sydney exhibitions, and has work in several public collections, including Murdoch University, Edith Cowan University and the Town of Vincent. Recently his work was acquired for the Parliament House Collection.
