Ben Quilty - Recent Work
Sprovieri is delighted to present THE EMU MAN, in collaboration with A3 Arndt Art Agency, Ben Quilty’s debut exhibition at the Gallery.
Quilty’s paintings are largely influenced by his experience of contemporary Australian culture, and particularly the drug-and-alcohol imbued culture of his youth; later experiences including political activism and a position as an official war artist have also shaped his practice. The bold themes which dominate Quilty’s practice are denoted through his painting aesthetic which is equally dimensional, confrontational and dynamic.
“Painting is very personal, it’s all about confronting your own humanity [....] there is so much to make work about and if welded in an idyllic Utopian world, maybe then I will make beautiful paintings”
