Michael Kennedy

10 March 2022–02 April 2022

Michael Kennedy is a Melbourne based artist of Indian-Fijian and Anglo-Celtic heritage. He explores identity and personal iconography by building upon and challenging the referential and communicative qualities within painting traditions in a highly technological era. Throughout his practice he aims to blend the strategies of both ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture into a flat surface devoid of hierarchy.
