Martine Emdur‘s work features in the exhibition Holiday + Memory, currently on at Penrith Regional Gallery. Featuring the work of 29 Australian artists Holiday + Memory investigates ‘the annual holiday experience of mid-twentieth century Australia. Dark nights, caravans, winding roads and oversized pineapples loom large upon the horizon, summoning memories of romantic sunsets and eerie shadows. Memories of fun in the sun, surf and bush retreats are accompanied by recollections of vinyl car seats, cries of ‘are we there yet’ dripping ice creams, flies and Aerogard; all typifying that beloved long, hot Australian summer.’ – Penrith Regional Gallery

‘Just as clouds disintegrate and re-form, water is in a constant state of renewal and restless movement. Into this realm Emdur plunges bodies and creates a subterranean theatre where silence replaces time and ambiguity is a constant.’ – Design Addict Platform
