Art Gallery NSW “Light and colour, moving”

This display draws on the key examples of art from the National Gallery collection from 1916 to the present. It considers the early work of the Sydney painter, Grace Cossington Smith, whose self-portrait erodes the solid image in favour of fragmented blues and pinks. The display includes the ‘pure’ abstract paintings of Grace Crowley, in which planes of colour overlap and intersect, and the ‘metaphorical’ abstraction of Lesley Dumbrell, that distils earthly phenomena as rhythmic patterns of light and linear form.
