Exhibition Season | 3 July - 6 November 2022
ARTHUR BOYD | REUBEN ERNEST BROWN | TIM GEORGESON & WILLIAM BARTON
Three exhibitions bring together different ways of seeing the natural world, ranging from the historical to the contemporary.
Arthur Boyd: Landscape of the Soul returns to Bundanon after touring nationally. Curated by Barry Pearce, with works drawn from the Bundanon Collection, the exhibition explores a lifetime of landscape paintings by Arthur Boyd.
The Hidden is an immersive work of sound and vision, created in residence at Bundanon by composer and musician William Barton and filmmaker and artist Tim Georgeson. This new commission, filled with striking images of shadows and light, didgeridoo and voice, resonates with spirits evoked from the natural world.
The River and the Sea is a small survey of the paintings of artist Reuben Ernest Brown (Uncle Ben Brown 1928 – 2009), who was making work at a similar time to Boyd. A strong local advocate for Indigenous connection to culture, Brown depicts animals, birds, trees and the built environment with vibrant colour and joy.
