Cool Art: beautiful.bizarre & Friends Of Leon Gallery presents 'Les Petit Fours'

beautiful.bizarre & Friends Of Leon Gallery presents 'Les Petit Fours', a carefully curated exhibition that brings together works from some of the best Australian and international New Contemporary artists and showcases the diversity of female figurative art from around the world.

From sublime realism, through graphic and fashion illustration, to pop surrealism, 'Les Petit Fours' explores our society's infatuation with the female in art. It is a diverse cross-section of the New Contemporary aesthetic brought together to tempt and delight.

Each artist was asked to create a single square cut artwork - a delectable piece in their signature style - their own little ‘petit four’. The artist line up includes:
Syd Bee | Jana Brike | Young Chun | Rose Freymuth-Frasier | Sonya Fu | Atsuko Goto | Melissa Hartley | Melissa Haslam | Meghan Howland | Ruben Ireland | Emma Leonard | Tracy Lewis | Alexandra Manykyan | Pippa McManus | Gabriel Moreno | Hieu Nguyen | ONEQ | Cate Rangel | Emma Sheldrake | Kelly Smith | Kazuki Takamatsu | Kelly Thompson | Ania Tomicka | Henrik Uldalen | David Wells | Kate Zambrano

The opening reception is from 6-8pm on Thursday, October 22 at Friends Of Leon Gallery, 82 Marlborough Street, Surry Hills, NSW 2010, Australia. Exhibition co-curator, beautiful.bizarre editor-in-chief Danijela Krha and select participating artists will be in attendance at the reception. The exhibition will be on display until November 8.
