Australian Galleries - Roylston - Narrative Realism: A World Observed















Finally back from Coffs and I love an Australian Galleries opening. You can rely on catching up with a few old chestnuts and it's always just a lovely place.

Eleanor curated this show and it displays work from Fred Cress, Neil Cuthbert, Graeme Drendel, Peter Neilson and sixtoeight stalwart Nerissa Lea. 

We only wish that we had Nerissa's story of the colour to black and white repaint of a painting in the catalogue on video, it was very entertaining and made sense of the show.

Cuthbert's 'Histories of the Field' stands out, it's almost Soviet 'agit prop' art and maybe we need more of that right now ...
