Long-time Glenbrook artist Catherine O'Donnell has a new series of work in a major exhibition curated by the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) in partnership with Penrith Regional Gallery (Lewers Bequest).

The work pays homage to the brutalist architecture of the Sirius building in Sydney’s Millers Point, providing a commentary upon the loss of public housing and community in the inner city.  Using six large-scale tape drawings she has mapped out the Sirius building footprint, floorplans and elevations across the walls of the main gallery. 

The landmark building in the Rocks has been the centre of controversy in recent years when the government announced it would remove residents and redevelop the site.
