Observational Correspondence showcases the work of regional artists Lisa Clarke and Ben Tupas over their five-year collaboration. This exhibition highlights a selection of 50 postcards sent between the two during the span of their project that offer a unique snapshot of contemporary Australia.

Based in Albury and Toowoomba respectively, Lisa and Ben originally met while both working as digital producers for the ABC. Moving away from digital tools for this exhibition, they utilise more traditional mediums such as ink, watercolour, gouache and pencil to create their art and document slices of life.

In a digital world where analogue communication and the postal service are slowly fading into obsolescence, their work uses the miniature canvas of the postcard to give glimpses of humour, pathos, and fleeting beauty inspired by the human condition.

Observational Correspondence is a meditation on connection, friendship, and a strong case for slowing down to be more present in life.
