White on white - Peter Wegner

Melbourne, 17 May 2016 — 5 Jun 2016

Rare Sightings: Paintings 2006 – 2016 - Daniel Moynihan

Melbourne, 17 May 2016 — 5 Jun 2016

From his early admiration of fourteenth-century Flemish painting through to studies of field naturalism, from intense research into the history and treatment of the Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger) to the lasting impression of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Richard III, and the more prosaic observations and memories of the everyday world, from the football field to his tools and implements, all these elements surface at various points in time and in a variety of modes.” Dr Jennifer Jones-O’Neill, 2016
