Australian Financial Review: Artist Ken Done finds ‘similarities’ in partnership with lawyers
by Michael Pelly
Bruce Cooper, the chief executive partner of law firm Clayton Utz, thinks that after a few tough years Australians are less inclined to “stop and smell the roses” – and enjoy the work of artists like Ken Done and Annalisa Ferraris.
Done and Ferraris are the latest participants in the Clayton Utz Art Partnership, which every six months offers two artists – one established, the other emerging – the chance to show and sell their work at the firm’s offices in Sydney and Melbourne.
The program started in 2017 with international artist Wendy Sharpe and Clara Adolphs and has featured well-known painters such as Euan McLeod, Jasper Knight, Jason Benjamin and Reg Mombassa.
