The Art Gallery of New South Wales is one of Australia’s best galleries. The permanent collection is varied and of high quality. The building is a meld of old and new with stunning views to the east towards Wooloomooloo.
My visit was twofold – a visit to the Sydney Moderns Exhibition, and to see Cloud Landscapes, a hauntingly beautiful exhibition of Bill Henson photographs.
Jeffrey Smart died recently. AGNSW paid homage with several paintings – in the members’ lounge and also on general display. This photograph features Floor Piece II 1970, 2011. Light sculptures have always fascinated me. This low-tech example is created with coloured fluorescent tubes, industrial metal mesh and electrical cord.
