COLIN SWEENEY – New works in the gallery

We are thrilled to have new works in the gallery from talented artist COLIN SWEENEY [view artist profile]. Colin’s work has generated a lot of considered praise in the gallery. The depth of colour and the resin on the surface is a striking characteristic in Sweeney’s works. His artwork has been collected widely throughout Australia and he has been commissioned by private collectors extensively.
