GANG GANG Gallery, Lithgow 206 Main Street, Lithgow, NSW, Australia

“Flipside” brings two diverse artists together, with two very different styles, who are literally splitting the gallery down the middle.
Jennifer Burns takes over the Eastern side of the gallery, with unique works on a variety of materials, including subtle recycling of everyday materials such as teabags, tin lids and dominos.
On the opposite side, Michael Comerford is filling the Western wall with saturated reinterpretations of panoramic photographs in a unique style that invites the viewer to look deeper, to determine the hidden origins of the piece.


GANG GANG Gallery, Lithgow 206 Main Street, Lithgow, NSW, Australia

Mindful Japanese art of mending to give a new life to broken pottery.
Kintsugi is a century-old Japanese craftwork where broken ceramic objects are pieced back together using Urushilacquer and gold dust based on the philosophy of Wabi Sabi finding beauty in imperfection.
