Time At The Swim Up Bar: Cosmopolitan, 2021, acrylic on canvas, 8 x 10″

The iconic Linden Postcard Show has returned for its 31st year at Linden New Art, St. Kilda! With over 1000 mini masterpieces to see – every work measuring exactly 8 x 10″ – this exhibition will include work by artists at all stages in their career, from across Australia.

Time At The Swim Up Bar: Mimosa, 2021, acrylic on canvas, 8 x 10″

This series, Time At The Swim Up Bar, celebrates miniature mermaids in classic cocktails. Following a two-year period of sobriety after chronic illness, the miniature postcard sized paintings mark a pause, or possible ending, to drinking alcohol, all the while celebrating the irresistible appeal of that holiday feeling synonymous with poolside cocktails. Inspired by British crime drama serial, The Serpent, viewed avidly through lockdown in 2021, these drinks are a safer variety to those drunk by the Thai pool!
