‘Devotions’ is the debut solo exhibition of Melbourne realist artist Lucy Roleff, comprising a series of 18 paintings that elevate everyday objects and motifs into an almost magical realm.

Painted alla prima style (‘wet-on-wet’) – these works evoke a distinct sense of tradition in their illusory realism, whilst the artist’s subject matter offers subtle hints of contemporary

origins: a half-finished tube of hand cream here, a pair of glimmering golden hoop earrings there.

The title of this show comes from the meticulous still life arrangements depicted, each composed almost like a shrine or altar, and the ways that deep emotional connection can be felt for everyday objects assembled ‘just so’.
