Lionel Lindsay once wrote that ‘my vagrant melancholy was haunted’ by the mysterious, morose and grotesque worlds of Gothic writer Edgar Allan Poe. Lindsay’s wood engravings tended to project his inner darkness, his fears and torments, and his dread of his times. While answering to our uncertain ‘new normal’, this selection of pre-COVID-19-era works shows that it is not unprecedented for visual art to express states of tension and depression, unease and weirdness. Featuring works by Lindsay and other Australian artists, including Peter Booth, Margery Edwards, James Gleeson and Anne Wallace.

Exhibition on display: Saturday 21 November - Sunday 14 March 2021
