Olsen Irwin | The New York Times

The New York Times‘ Tony Perrottet visited Olsen Irwin on a recent trip to Sydney. Tasked with discovering the city’s cultural highlights, Perrottet refrained from visiting Sydney’s iconic beaches and landmarks.

“I bounced around the established galleries in Paddington and Woollahra, including Roslyn Oxley9, a light-filled space hidden below a sandstone bluff, and Olsen Irwin, where the caliber of art would be perfectly at home in one of the galleries beside New York’s High Line.” – Tony Perrottet, The New York Times, 11 April 2014
