Rodney Pople is among Australia’s most celebrated artists. His work traverses the personal, political and surreal, giving expression to our cultural life. In ‘Pussy Willow’, he presents a sprawling tree dripping with bats.

Pople’s use of line – thick then thin – recalls palmistry, where your palm’s indentions are read as prophetic. Indeed, there is something mystical about ‘Pussy Willow’. Spurring from the desert and into the sky, this tree is a bracing lifeforce – a conduit for bats, sun and our attention.

Pople is highly accomplished. In 2014 he won the Fisher's Ghost Art Award, the NSW Parliament Art Prize in 2009, and the Sulman Prize in 2008. He is also a twelve-time Archibald Prize finalist and in 2014, was the sole focus of an exhibition at the Australian Centre for Photography. Fascinatingly elusive in tone and subject, Pople is represented in all state collections.

For collectors of important contemporary Australian art, ‘Pussy Willow’ is a truly special find. An impression of it is represented at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, and Castlemaine Art Museum, Victoria.
