Animalia – A Group Show

a themed exhibition with artists, who relate with their imagery directly to Animalia both real and imagined.

About

Animals as a theme have inspired artists since millennia; Despard Gallery presents their third themed exhibition with invited artists, who, through their imagery directly relate to Animalia both real and imagined.

This eclectic and vibrant new exhibition includes three important paintings from Anne Hall (born Melbourne, 1945) dating from1968 to 1972. Hall was married to John Perceval and is considered by critics to be the last remaining figurative expressionist from the circle of John and Sunday Reed at Heide. Her highly figurative work allows us to enter world of a woman with a deep intensity for her subject. These paintings show Hall taking animals and familiar domestic surroundings and weaving them into what was at the time; described as ‘ heraldic decorativeness’ she was a highly talented and dedicated artist who strove to release her innermost feelings
