Waratah Lahy, 'Double Stair' 2015 image

Waratah Lahy's painting 'Double Stair' has entered Canberra Museum + Gallery's Permanent Collection.

This was a major work from Lahy’s most recent exhibition Not far from the truth, which explored ideas of truth and the distortion of memory.

“My images are derived from photographic documentation of events that are both personal yet ubiquitous. I focus on imagery which suggests a narrative, such as the open door, the empty room and the mirror, as well as looking for pattern, colour and repetition.” – Waratah Lahy
