Last weekend I travelled to Brisbane to see the opening of a small survey of paintings by Australian artist Sam Fullbrook (1922 – 2004) at the Queensland Art Gallery.
This show of around 40 paintings and drawings wasn’t intended as a retrospective but rather a specific look at three areas of Fullbrook’s practice – landscape, portraits and the racetrack (a place Fullbrook seems to have spent quite a lot of time).
It’s a riotous explosion of colour in Gallery 14 at the QAG. If you’re interested in reading more about the show, you can find my full review and lots more images and links at The Guardian.
Below is one of Fullbrook’s well-known portraits, Brisbane writer Ernestine Hill.
The exhibition runs until 10 August 2014.
