DESCRIPTION

The newly renovated Australian Galleries Roylston Street Salon opens with a much anticipated exhibition by renowned Sydney printmaker Bruce Goold.
2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the Sydney Opera House. Commemorating this momentous occasion Goold has created a series of linocuts. In a clever play of historic and architectural reference Goold presents figures that have graced Australian history books each image visually interpreting the famous Opera House sails. With their simple, graphic form the linocuts resemble the black paper-cut silhouette portrait, popular in 18th century Europe.
Goold was one of eight artists chosen to exhibit last year at The Utzon Centre, Denmark in a show titled Australian Artists and the Opera House.
