A SECOND GLANCE: MATTHEW BEGG

Mathew Begg is a Dubbo-based artist who has created a series of work that keenly observes the urban landscapes of Dubbo and its surrounds. His paintings offer both the joys of familiarity as well as a note of intrigue; what stories are hidden within the deserted streets and darkened windows? Begg employs a realist style to depict the instantly recognisable streetscapes, but at the same time suggests the inner narratives of these urban facades. Secrets, untold stories and long forgotten histories linger within his works. This is an exhibition that reminds us to take a moment to relish our surroundings, and look twice, no matter how familiar these buildings appear to be.
