The Ned Kelly legend as you have never seen it

The Age
Nick Miller
February 21, 2020

You don’t get much more Australian than this. Ned Kelly’s girlfriend, riding Phar Lap, which has just deposited a pile of golden nuggets.

Melbourne artist Jacqui Stockdale gets that it’s funny. It’s intended to be.

 But look again, she says.

“I’ve called it Such is Love. She’s a message. I don’t want to use the word powerful. But it’s absurd. Ned Kelly’s absurd. This is summing up Australia.”

‘The Golden Days’ Paul Davies solo show at the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery

7 February - 22 March 2020

 

Paul Davies is an Australian-born, Los Angeles - based artist whose work is driven by friction between opposing forces of built and natural environments, design and art, abstraction and figuration. These boundaries and relationships are illustrated through Davies' process, which combines painting, stencilling, photography and sculpture. The Golden Days reflects on the connection between Los Angeles, California, and Hill End, NSW, through an exploration of landscape and notions of ‘gold rush’ in the context of historical and present day meaning.
