Toowoomba artist explores contemporary notions of portraiture

Toowoomba portrait artist Sue McMaster has unveiled a new body of work titled, Deep in conversation, that is on display at the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery until September 27.

McMaster said her solo exhibition explored portraiture and the notion of data loss.

She said she asked questions about the very nature of portraiture and was interested in how much information could be shed from an image before it became meaningless.

“I work with data loss, originally triggered by an interest in our constant input of pictures from tiny photos on mobile phones,” she said.
