My Animals have a Home
ATTY’s gallery lies in the Rocks, a stone’s throw from the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, in one of the original worker’s cottages. Built between 1875 and 1877, the ATTY residence at number 27 Playfair Street is a quirky three-story building with three original fireplaces, wooden floors and crooked doors
The Rocks is a unique haunt and one of few areas of the Sydney to showcase a cross-section of architecture from the 18th to the 20th century. This historic quartier has witnessed mesmerising changes throughout Australian history. Notoriously linked with the convict period and the bubonic plague, today it is a cosmopolitan, cultural hub.
“The gallery is a fresh, breathable, bright home for my beloved animals. I am currently housing my animal explosion series alongside the Billabong Dreams series,’’ explains ATTY, who along with iconic Sydney artist Ken Done, is one of few artists to run their own dedicated gallery in the Rocks.
