Australian artist and teacher Colin Lanceley (1938-2015) lived, breathed and made art. This exhibition, ‘Colin Lanceley: Earthly Delights’ curated by Sioux Garside presents a comprehensive survey of Colin Lanceley’s lifetime of work from his early years as a student at East Sydney Technical College, now known as the National Art School (NAS), and traversing several decades of his artistic practice. The exhibition is on at NAS Gallery until 13 August.
“I love art. I love to make it. I love to look at it. I love to read about it. I love to think about it. I love to talk about it.” – Colin Lanceley, 1970s
