Double Standards is a group exhibition held at M16 Artspace 14 - 31 January 2021. I will be exhibiting along side Canberra based artists: Tom Buckland, Adina West, Patrick Larmour, Belle Palmer, Ruby Rossiter, Jess Semler and Sky Jamieson.
'To have a double standard is to apply different sets of principles to a situation, principles that in practice are contradictory to one another, benefiting oneself or a group of people. The application of a double standard is used in a multitude of ways, and can be seen as a mechanism that dis-empowers people by the desire to be right. Time and time again we experience double standards within society, which are present in politics, gender, social conditioning, relationships, ethics, morality and art.
Double Standard is the examination of how we affect and are affected by the principles in our lives. This exhibition challenges our Artists to present their work in a different contexts of a double standard, and juxtapose their ideas, media and use of space.
Tom Buckland, Adina West, Patrick Larmour, Belle Palmer, Rowan McGinness, Ruby Rossiter, Jess Semler and Sky Jamieson are all graduates of the School of Art and Design who work in a diverse range of media. Although each of their practice varies, each artist is linked by the way they challenge the initial functions of static art in a contemporary context.' - "Coming Soon."

Happy to announce that 3 new works of mine will be shown at the Brunswick Street Gallery's Small Works Prize. The exhibition will on 7 - 22 January 2021, at the Brunswick Street Gallery in Fitzroy, VIC.
Opening January 27 2021, at ANCA Gallery in Dickson, Pinched Paintings is a collaboration between Canberra ceramicist, Abbey Jamieson, and myself.
'Abbey Jamieson and Rowan McGinness unite to produce a playful landscape of painted
ceramic objects. This collaborative project challenges painting and ceramic stigmas. By using
paint as the surface treatment on the ceramic wares it opens up new opportunities that are
not traditionally accepted in the craft field, and pushes painting into a three-dimensional
space.' - Abbey Jamieson and Rowan McGinness. "Exhibition: Pinched Paintings." ANCA. https://www.anca.net.au/whats-on/2021/1/27/exhibition-painted-pinches (10 December 2020).
Exhibition on till February 14 2021.
