Untitled, winner of the Darebin Art Show (2010), conveys a sense of summertime in the inner northern suburbs. The vivid blue sky dominating the top third of the painting infuses great energy into a mundane scene, while the everyday beauty of the neighbourhood is revealed in the bright, harsh light of the Australian summer sky.
Jason Emilianowicz captures a familiar, local streetscape: a suburban fence line, adorned with imposing graffiti, backs on to a public path following the South Morang railway line and the Merri Creek. A woman strides briskly along the path with her dogs that are just disappearing from view.
