“Jeff Ferris is a sharp-focus realist who uses mundane, suburban contrasts to create visual shock …” Ronald Millar, The Herald, 1984
Jeff Ferris held his first solo exhibition at Nelson Galleries, Melbourne in 1976. Since then he has held solo exhibitions at Powell Street Gallery, Christine Abrahams Gallery and Holdsworth Contemporary Gallery in Sydney.
In 2008 we held an exhibition of his paintings at our Hampton Gallery. The show included many of the works he had painted over the previous decade.
Our current exhibition features Ferris' most recent works. The paintings are inspired by the urban landscapes of the western suburbs, particularly Williamstown where he grew up and Altona where he lives.
