Colleen Stapleton's Contemplation is part of a joint exhibition with Canberra's Narelle Zeller.

Colleen Stapleton, Narelle Zeller. Mirror, Mirror. Grainger Gallery, Building 3.3, 1 Dairy Road, Fyshwick. Until December 12.

Mirror, Mirror showcases the work of two sisters - Sydney-based Colleen Stapleton and Canberra-based Narelle Zeller. While there may be genetic connections, aesthetically their work as presented in the exhibition, could not be more different. Apart from the obvious difference in subject matter (Stapleton's figures and portraits and Zeller's still lifes), each approaches the motif in her own idiosyncratic visual language that is in both cases, highly particular and resolved.
