Robyn Stacey: As Still As Life

Robyn Stacey is compelled by the light, composition and indelible code of the still life, stating it ‘is one of the most enduring and significant genres in Western art.’ Twenty-four of Stacey’s large-scale photographs are on view, some inspired by the social and historical nuance of the Macleay collection held at Sydney University and the collection of the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney. Alongside this we find a Baroque painting from the National Gallery of Victoria and more than 50 Australian works from the MGA’s collection.
