Mark Mohell has a beautiful set of photographs hanging in the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra, as part of 'The Popular Pet Show', a stunning exhibition that explores and celebrates the relationships between people and their pets. As the NPG's in house photographer, Mark travelled the country, photographing the represented artists in their homes and studios for this exhibition.
'Comprising exuberant recent Australian paintings, many on a large scale, it will include portraits of famous and obscure Australians and their pets by contemporary artists Nicholas Harding, Lucy Culliton, Darren McDonald, Anna Culliton, Fiona McMonagle, Ken Done, Noel McKenna, Graeme Drendel, Robyn Sweaney, Kristin Headlam, Shen Jiawei, Jude Rae, William Robinson, Janet Dawson and Davida Allen. Many works have been created especially for the exhibition.'
The exhibition continues until March 2017.
