Chris Kunko | Thinking of an old friend
August 1 — November 8
This exhibition will explore the untold drama and fanfare that unfolds on ‘race day’. In the form of painting, Kunko is witness to the interactions behind the scenes of jockeys through to horse owners and the pageant atmosphere of the fashions on the field events. From manicured gardens and grassy green turf like Bathurst and Dubbo to dirt bush tracks in the outback like Collarenebri and Enngonia, Kunko sees people from all backgrounds who come together pitching their luck on the back of a horse and its rider – taking a punt and letting luck make its play.
