Tai Snaith

Sunday Paintings

4 September28 September 2014

From 4 to 28 September, we welcome Tai Snaith to Chapter House Lane with an exhibition titled Sunday Paintings. Join us for drinks from 6-8pm, Thursday 4 September as we embrace the artist’s self-determined ‘amateur’ practice, with re-worked ‘new’ work.

It’s a complicated life for the modern among us. Sundays are supposed to slow us down. A day of reverence – not necessarily holy, but of the things which make us whole: family, hobbies, friends. Accomplished as she is, Snaith has been busy with more than just art*, time painting has become simultaneously relegated and all the more personally important.

Taking on three failed paintings, Snaith has spent Sundays reworking them into their new state, taking a pictorial walk through the ways we prioritise, use and mythologise our ‘free-time’.

*Tai Snaith has exhibited extensively since graduating with honours from the VCA in 2002, here and overseas. She has been a Visual Arts Producer for Next Wave Festival, Emerging Writers Festival and Melbourne Fringe Festival. She is a regular contributor of critical arts reviews to Triple R and writes for a variety of publications. Snaith has also published two hardcover children’s books with Thames and Hudson.
