Yvonne Audette: six decades of painting

28 Aug 2009 — 21 Nov 2009

Curators: Joanna Bosse and Bala Starr

Yvonne Audette is a senior Australian artist who is regarded as a key figure in the development of abstract painting by Australian artists. Audette’s remarkable career spans six decades, and this exhibition includes more than fifty works from 1950 to the present.

Evocative and richly layered, these lyrical, abstract works reflect the artist’s response to her immediate as well as imagined environment. Paintings that explore the development of Audette’s practice and the full spectrum of her career have been selected, and have mostly been drawn from the artist’s collection.
