THÉRÉSE DERRICK



Thérése Derrick's solo painting show, Men We Love, was another bumper opening at Platform. Many of the celeb faces to appear in Thérése's portraits showed up in person on the night including: Danius Kesminas (pictured), Justin Koschitzke, Eddie Perfect, Dave Hughes, Jon Campbell and quite a few others who mingled into the crowd just nicely. The life-size portraits were painted on board in monotones using flat housepaints, creating a warm watercolour effect. As Thérése is currently travelling in Europe, but you can expect to see her at an upcoming Archibald soon... Read The Age article on Thérése: Portrait of the man as a love object.
