SOLO EXHIBITION OPENING AT PURPLE NOON GALLERY

Saturday 3rd April 2021

“wiping a palette knife on any handy piece of shrub (Streeton) painted the work in a state of artistic intoxication with the thoughts of (Poet Percy Bysshe) Shelley in mind”

“” Blue Isles and snowy mountains wear the purple noon’s transparent might”” (Shelley)

And then before Arthur Streeton ever ventured to Freemans Reach, Darug Country, Captain John Piper, a soldier turned Customs Officer turned Hawkesbury pioneer, set out into The Bush.

“…met by a wall of trees, (what was then) an insupportable burden on the imagination, (for) bushrangers were a matter of everyday… “

Joanna Cole painted at Streetons Look out for this exhibition, allowing the thoughts of these histories to overlap with present day news, events and peoples, colouring and shaping the works.
