Fiona McMonagle


110cm x 84.5cm Watercolour and Ink on Paper

The buying committee travelled to Sydney to attend the inaugural  Sydney Contemporary Art Fair. Having VIP collectors passes gave us access to one hour at 5 pm previewing the available art  before the rest of the VIPs swarmed in at 6 . The venue was packed! Have rarely seen so many air kisses, social xrays  and injectables at one venue. Lots of fun but ridiculously crowded and difficult to negotiate the space as a result.

When we made our way on to the Olsen Irwin stand it possibly took all of 3 minutes for each one of us to fall head over heels for Tara. Although we already have one of Fiona’s other works in our collection we felt that it was different enough to earn a separate spot.

This is an immensely appealing piece and quite beautifully composed.

Purchased from Olsen Irwin Gallery, September 2012
