ARTHUR BOYD: LANDSCAPE OF THE SOUL
A BUNDANON TRUST TOURING EXHIBITION AT THE NATIONAL ART SCHOOL GALLERY
CURATED BY BARRY PEARCE
Exhibition Dates: 10 January – 9 March 2019
Opening Hours: Monday–Saturday, 11am–5pm
Landscape of the Soul is a new exhibition exploring the Australian landscape and a sense of place through the complex genius of Arthur Boyd. From light-filled early landscapes to tormented figures in the bush, the paintings, prints, drawings, photographs and archival material in this exhibition expose an inner landscape and an artist’s creative odyssey. Curated by Barry Pearce, this new Bundanon Trust Touring Exhibition is presented at the National Art School from 10 January to 9 March 2019.
From early, youthful en plein air subjects celebrating light, to the final phase of his career depicting the Shoalhaven on the south coast of New South Wales, encompassing the artist’s journeys from Australia to England and Europe, artworks in the exhibition present the landscape as a theatre for his deeper explorations – not merely topographic, but a psychic sense of place.
