Friends and well-known Australian artists Euan Macleod and Rodney Pople undertook artist residencies in Dubbo during 2021, observing people and animals at Taronga Western Plains Zoo. Each artist produced sketches and preparatory studies at the Zoo, expanding on these later in the studio. For their first two-person exhibition they have produced large scale paintings and portraits of animals and humans, revealing a sustained engagement with the act of looking and its reverse – being looked at. In different ways characteristic of each artists’ established practice, the paintings explore notions of captivity and freedom, drawing out the absurdity at the heart of our own ideas around dominance and survival.
