Memories of Melbourne

For William Breen painting is a means to chase such psychological truths. In his canvases the urban mindscape is captured, a space in which everything is balanced and ordered on fi rst appearance, but which holds within it a brooding quality and the promise of a moment of significance. Breen’s worlds are a balance of the deepest shade and the brightest of light - a bleaching cleanliness that houses darker possibilities. Such landscapes would be familiar to many Melburnians.
