john brack exhibition
Well, we finally got the John Brack exhibition at the NGV yesterday ... once we were there we didn't want to leave! The sheer volume and variety of the work on display was amazing.
Read in a recent interview that his wife Helen Brack felt that his best work was the precise, surrealist pieces of the 80's and 90's, but we fell pretty heavily for his 50's and 60's period - the colours, the cartoony qualities, the modernist content ...
Highly recommend a visit if you are in Melbourne with an hour or 2 free ... genius!
They weren't selling, so we'll be have to be content with prints in our loungeroom for now.
