Adrian Lockhart Metropolis Gallery Geelong


Adrian Lockhart’s intimate, lyrical paintings and drawings reflect his love of the ocean and beach life: My exhibition ‘Washing off the Sand’ at Metropolis Gallery represents many times spent surfing, then observing the beach activity. This work is about the dance on, in and by the sea. The reclining, sunbaking bodies on the sand; people running into the surf; the wading in the shallows and the final act of washing away the salt, the oil, the sand, under the beachside shower. Washing away all but the memory. It also represents a guilty pleasure, especially guilty the washing down of a surfboard to put in my car, to drive home to the studio, to reflect and work on the memory of it all. (Adrian Lockhart 2019)
