Floor Talk & Morning Tea: Gordon Shepherdson – Ocean of Eyes



Join us for a floor talk to learn more about Gordon Shepherdson: Ocean of Eyes with arts writer Louise Martin-Chew in conversation with Gordon Shepherdson’s son Nathan Shepherdson.

Gordon Shepherdson: Ocean of Eyes will celebrate the work of late Brisbane-based artist, Gordon Shepherdson (1934 – 2019). Renowned for his expressionist paintings, Shepherdson’s subjects are often set against dark, deep backgrounds that enrich the haunting quality of his work. Influenced by his affinity for nature, Shepherdson draws upon the poetic possibilities of the passage of tides, winds and seasons to speak of humanity’s journey through life. Having spent significant time in the Redlands, Gordon Shepherdson: Ocean of Eyes explores the artist’s intimate understanding of the geography, skies, and animals of the local area and their influence on his wider practice.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with Philip Bacon Galleries, Nathan Shepherdson and Bruce Heiser.

Exhibition continues until Sunday 3 December 2023
