Featured in // THIS WEEK WITH // is a series of paintings by Fiona Buchanan from the exhibition Two Sunsets curated by John Ros.
"Two Sunsets is an exhibition of paintings that blurs the lines of the real and surreal as a direct result of post-excess, related to the climate crisis and the over consumption habits of daily convenience. This installation studies an aftermath to the fumbling trajectory of our progress-forever-culture." - John Ros, curator
