LESLEY MEANEY | Becoming Australian | 50 Years

Event description



Gallery Hours: Wed - Sun | 12pm - 6pm | 5 October - 17 November 2019

This 50-year survey presents the art of Lesley Meaney as a journey of becoming Australian.

A kaleidoscopic visual feast of vibrant colour, pattern and texture unfolds through a variety and abundance of art works. With a spirit of enquiry, Meaney draws inspiration from the Australian bush, the heart of the forest and desert. Each of these places have come to define Meaney’s identity and sense of home.

This is an evolving journey through painting, drawing, curious objects and stitched works, that speaks of impermanence, the details and forces of nature and their translation into becoming Australian.

The exhibition will coincide with the launch of a book featuring Lesley's work, Lesley Meaney Becoming Australian an Artist's Journey. All proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to support a brighter future for children with brain cancer.
