RETURN by Aldo Iacobelli

curated by Dr Linda Marie Walker

9 February – 10 March 2019
Main Gallery

This is the first time Iacobelli has shown work that spans his forty-year painting career. The works gathered in RETURN were selected through memory, conversation, and unwrapping stored works, with some works having never been shown in Australia. The works have diverse subjects, not least the language of painting and drawing, the histories and traditions and challenges (representation and resemblance, for instance). The painter is also a sculptor, and objects accompany paintings, as well as stand for themselves.
