Presented by Kingston Arts Grant recipient Candice McGaw, 'Transient Structures' expands on work made during an artist residency at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) in Clayton.
The body of work explores how biological, aesthetic and big picture questions of regenerative medicine can be translated in paintings, drawings and sculpture. Why do zebrafish have the ability to regenerate a third of their body, whereas humans have minimal regenerative capacity?
This exhibition is supported by ARMI and the City of Kingston. With special thanks to scientist and mentor, Danni Ratnayake, ARMI.

about the artist
Primarily working in painting and drawing, Candice is interested in classical history, medical science and figuration and borrowing from these to comment on subjects such as feminism, physical and emotional responses and the experience of space.
