Frank Hodgkinson (1919-2001) was one of Australia’s foremost abstract painters and artists. He was drawn to the Australian landscape in general and Aboriginal culture in particular in all its manifestations.His curiosity with Aboriginal art and culture called him to the Top End for long periods of time throughout since the 1980s. Arnhemland especially made a deep impression on him, and he returned several times to this spirited country.Sense of Place will present original sketches and excerpt of this diary together with a selection of larger paintings, which show the artist as an observer exploring the spiritual connections to country and people as Hodgkinson poses on the most central of human questions: Where do we come from?Opening celebration: Sunday 10 September 2:00pm.
