Eastgate Gallery are pleased to announce that Melbourne based painter Roger Byrt will be showing with us from 2017.

In Byrt’s interiors and still-life paintings, artifacts and objects are placed in strange juxtaposition, evoking a distinct sense of visual irony and ambiguity…there are resonances and paradoxes, tensions and areas of serene open space, but we are offered few clues to these visual conundrums…

My paintings are an ongoing attempt to depict eternal things such as light, space and form…I love painting objects that to me, possess monumental and magical qualities…

Stay tuned for Roger’s exhibition next year.
