BRETT WHITELEY—FRANCIS BACON ON SHOW IN THE NANDA\HOBBS PROJECT SPACE

9 March 2022

We are thrilled to present a beautiful and intimate collection of artworks by Brett Whiteley and Francis Bacon—featuring sculpture, painting, drawing and printworks. The exhibition acknowledges the individual vision and uniqueness of each artist whilst allowing their collective mystic to permeate the psyche of the audience.

Brett Whiteley is an iconic figure in Australian art history. The artist possessed a bowerbird-like ability to bring together disparate elements and influences and make them work within a picture plane. He was an artist who could absorb ideas and aesthetic sensibilities from history, yet, somehow make his own visual language. 

His travels across the world opened the Sydney-born artist to personal contact with some of the greats of the cultural world. One who would leave an indelible mark was the seminal British painter, Francis Bacon. Regarded as one of the most prominent figures in British art, there is no doubt that Bacon intrigued Whiteley. 

The exhibition is on show in the Nanda\Hobbs Project Space.
