In 2007, Mackenzie Thorpe was invited to Australia to work alongside the Kintore Aboriginal Elders – a group of Indigenous artists from the Western Desert in the NT.

To be extended this incredibly rare invitation is an extraordinary privilege.

Mackenzie is now returning to Australia in October with a collection of twelve paintings he created to honour the time he spent working with these Indigenous artists.

Mackenzie’s art is captivating and the messages are inspiring. His work speaks of love, fear, courage, loneliness and above all – hope.

Mackenzie’s body of works include oil paintings, silk screens, bronze and resin sculptures. There are enormous contrasts within his work – from his celebrated square sheep and love of children and animals to his exploration of the struggles of man.

Mackenzie Thorpe’s exhibition opens on Friday 10 October at the Trevor Victor Harvey Gallery (515 Sydney Road, Seaforth). The exhibition closes on Sunday 26 October.
