Patricia Piccinini & Joy Hester: Through love …
CURATED BY VICTORIA LYNN
Patricia Piccinini & Joy Hester: Through love …reveals the shared explorations of love, intimacy and relationships in the work of two of Australia’s most exceptional artists. This is the first exhibition to explore the conceptual links between the works of Patricia Piccinini and Joy Hester (1940–1960)—an artist whom Piccinini has long admired. Hester’s expressionistic blended figures, drawn with ink on paper, often share an eye, mouth or shoulder. Piccinini’s works intermingle human, non-human and hybrid forms. The works in this exhibition share an interest in various kinds of love as expressed through the coupling of male and female; mother and child; child and animal; and animate and inanimate forms. Love is seen as complex, intimate and entangled.
