> DESCRIPTION

Continuing the Artist's Choice series of exhibitions, Brisbane-based artist Michael Zavros was invited to work with the Gallery's Collection. Taking his own seductive, realist painting — Unicorn in the anticamera 2008 — as his point of departure, Zavros has cast contemporary beauty, decadence and ego in terms of possessions.

Works in a variety of media have been reimagined as the domestic trappings of an opulent designer lifestyle, representing a distinctive and successful character.

The Gallery gratefully acknowledges the Queensland Museum for the loan of several works in this exhibition.

An exhibition publication will be available for purchase from the QAGOMA store and online.
