Ken Whisson: Paintings and Drawings | Author: Quentin Sprague
Back in stock soon.
A richly illustrated study of Australian modernist painter Ken Whisson's life and work. Ken Whisson (1927-2022) was one of Australia's foremost artists, widely acclaimed for an unwaveringly idiosyncratic practice that charted a singular course through seven decades of modern and contemporary Australian painting.
Celebrated in his lifetime with the 2012 retrospective exhibition, Ken Whisson- As If, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney and the Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne, Ken Whisson- Painting & Drawing presents the first comprehensive study of Whisson's life and work. Richly illustrated, including with over 300 plates, and drawing on extensive interviews and archival research, it covers the artist's early decades in Melbourne, his long residence in the Italian city of Perugia, and his return to Australia in 2014. The picture that emerges is of an artist driven by the vagaries of memory and an enduring belief in creative intuition- a combination that resulted in one of the most original bodies of work in Australian art.
