KEVIN MCKAY Pavilion: South Cronulla Studies 13 June to 8 July 2017

This series of paintings and ink wash studies explores Sydney’s southern beachside suburb of Cronulla. It began with a small beachside pavilion. Like many others that dot Australia’s coastline, this structure houses a public toilet and change room and serves as an orientating landmark, demarking the space between the working city and foreshore leisure. Despite its humble function, the pavilion represents a place of transition and like a classical temple, provides a sense of the metaphysical in its engagement with light and space. I look for the same in the suburban jumble that rises along the shore to obstruct and frame the empty space of sky and sea.
