Drawing
from Clifford Last

Ralph Kenyon | Catherine de Vaus | Helen Dooley | Annie Huang | Alison Norton |
Christine Cobbe | Jenny Elliott | Kara Gough

 

Inspired by the miraculously composed abstract sculpture Mandalia by Clifford Last, this exhibition showcases a series of responses using the expressive medium of charcoal. Under the mentorship of local artist Anthony Pelchen, Ralph Kenyon’s, Catherine de Vaus’, Helen Dooley’s, Annie Huang’s, Alison Norton’s, Christine Cobbe’s, Jenny Elliott’s, and Kara Gough’s drawings will form a visual essay on ways of seeing abstraction. Exhibited with the sculpture, these drawings will ruminate on the evocative narrative and restrained visual language assembled from absolute basic human form, characteristic of Clifford Last’s sculptural style of the late 1960’s.

 

Pioneering sculptor Clifford Last (1918–1991) was a founding member of Centre 5, a group formed in 1960 to promote and foster the understanding of Modern sculpture in Australia. His sculpture Mandalia, c1970 entered our Collection in 1996 as a gift of the artist’s estate.
