In his new solo exhibition, Proximity, Michael Muir invites viewers to consider their individual place in relation to the world, something of particular resonance for Australians considering their geographical isolation. This latest series of paintings developed while travelling in Italy, through towns including Rome, Bologna, Florence and Sienna.
Muir has exhibited extensively in Australia in group and solo exhibitions. His work is represented in Australia’s Artbank collection and private collections throughout Australia and internationally. In 2018, a major work of Muir’s was acquired by the Parliament House Art Collection in Canberra.
