Just been listening & watching an ABC video. Great story.
Talking Heads: 2009: Wendy Whiteley Podcast 26:00 10/08/2009 Wendy Whiteley: Peter Thompson talks to artist Wendy Whiteley about her extraordinary journey from swinging sixties London and New York to a tranquil garden at the edge of Sydney Harbour.
Images and comments follow.
I think I’ll go to the Studio Museum when I’m in Sydney in January – not far from where my brother Hugh lived. The story is engaging, tragic. Amazing that he won all three major art prizes in one year.
I like the look of this paining:
