Location: Brett Whiteley Studio, Surry Hills
This exhibition explores Brett Whiteley’s art and life from 1960 to 1967 when he was largely based in London.
It includes key abstract works from this period as well as paintings from his Bathroom, Christie and London Zoo series, and the Endlessnessism monoprints of conversations with the artist Francis Bacon.
This remarkable body of work displays all the dexterity, imagination and ambition of a prodigious talent still in his twenties.
