Sydney - Digital Journal attended the media preview of ‘The London Years 1960-67’ - a new Brett Whiteley exhibition, which will display 56 paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures from the time when he was living in London in the 1960s.
Brett Whiteley (1939 to 1992) was an Australian artist. Wendy Whiteley (nee Julius) was at the media preview. She lived with Brett in the Ladbroke Grove area of London and got married to him in 1962. Both were from Sydney, Australia.
The exhibition will be held at The Brett Whiteley Studio, located at 2 Raper Street in Surry Hills, Sydney. The Brett Whiteley Studio is managed by the Art Gallery of NSW. It was both the home and place of work for Brett from 1995 up to his passing in 1992.
In 1964 Brett said “All the paintings I have made in the last four years have been concerned one way or another with sex and the desire to record sensual behaviour.”
The exhibition includes his intimate nudes of Wendy bathing - the Bathroom series and works from his London Zoo series.
The Brett Whiteley Studio is open to the public free of charge from 10am to 4pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The gallery is funded by J.P. Morgan.
