> DESCRIPTION

This exhibition traces Albert Tucker’s persistent fascination with outsiders, here conveyed through his haunting depictions of explorers and intruders, tragic and often menacing figures who trespass upon the Australian bush. These anonymous figures pre-occupied Tucker for around a decade from the late 1950s, the earliest painted prior to his return to Australia after a long period spent aboard. Vulnerable and gaunt, sometimes masked, or beset by parrots, they convey a powerful sense of struggle against an overwhelming and alien landscape, and through this, evoke broader themes of human existence and survival.
