A new gallery is making its way to Sydney and opens this week! New Albion Gallery will open its doors to the public with an inaugural solo exhibition by Melbournebased hyper-realist sculpture, Sam Jinks.

The new gallery, which is backed by the owners of auction house Deutscher+Hackett, will open in their exhibition rooms on Oxford Street. Since our latest print edition was published, New Albion Gallery has announced it will be moving into the iconic Paddington Gallery that is currently home to Sherman Contemporary Art Gallery (SCAF) in early 2012 (when SCAF moves to their new gallery on the grounds of UNSW).

Jink’s exhibition is set to impress – the work is intricately beautiful and arrestingly fine in precise detail. His works, created from silicone, firberglass and human hair, blur the lines between the real and the manmade. The illusions, though, do not diminish the visceral power they embody as they are at once gentle, moving objects as they are haunting.

Not having held a solo show in Sydney since 2007, this new body of work adds to the excitement of the New Albion Gallery opening and – in time – revealing the rest of its stable.
