B. 1939 - 1992
Brett Whiteley is among Australia's most iconic artists. His work is informed by his travels to London, New York and Fiji, as well as the Vietnam War, drug abuse and artists Vincent Van Gogh and Francis Bacon. Under Whiteley's eye, the abstract and figurative fuse, emotion is heightened and reality balloons and contracts, as though refracted through a dream. Some of his most recognisable subjects include the murderer John Christie, the 1970s peace moments and Sydney Harbour.
Whiteley’s work is represented in most national and regional galleries, including at the National Gallery of Australia, and internationally at Tate Gallery in London and MoMA in New York. Through the Art Gallery of New South Wales, his studio has become a permanent gallery.
