APTOS CRUZ GALLERIES PRESENTS
PRICHARD + SANDO
An exhibition of new works by Murray Prichard and Ben Sando
Opening Night Thursday 21st Oct, 6:30pm
Exhibition closes 24th November, 2010
An exhibition of powerful, colourful, bold works, high in emotional content and strong in sentiment. These two artists are long-term exhibitors at Aptos Cruz Galleries and are brought together for the first time.
Ben Sando’s paintings have rich surface qualities that display strong composition and considered mark making. His works are warm and inviting with imperfect line, broken surface and drip marks, reminding us that they are a made work created by an artist’s hand. read more...

Murray has a strong and bold mark making that gives depth to the colour rich surfaces he creates. His works are dynamic yet ‘sit comfortably’ as there is an understanding of harmony and balance present in his work. read more...
