The Surprise Collection

By Lincoln Townley

17th August – 1st October, 2017

Venue: Brisbane Powerhouse, Exhibition Spaces



This collection of oil paintings depicts the turbulence of a descent into the darkest depths of the unconscious mind where form and structure dissipate to leave the raw, intense energy of a struggle for survival. A powerful visual depiction of the darkness man must conquer to gain ultimate iconic stature.
