‘And thou shalt not lie with mankind
as one lieth with a woman: it is an abomination.’
Leviticus 18:22

A series of new artworks and objects by Naarm Artist, Frances Cannon, examining their Christian upbringing and cheekily intertwining it with their lesbian identity.

This series includes several oil paintings featuring Frances’ well-known fat figures, praying, tithing, raising their hands in worship, sitting in church pews (and drawing naked ladies in their bible margins). Alongside which sit ceramic and hand-cast bronze objects of religious iconography (with a Frances twist). 

Please join us for a drink to celebrate the opening of Church Girl Mythology on Friday the 27th October (6–8PM)
