Across time focuses on the Gallery’s expanding collection of works by Bill Henson, one of Australia’s most significant contemporary artists.
The works in the Newcastle collection document aspects of Henson’s career from the seminal Paris Opera series through to his iconic youth-focused works and to later works documenting the abandoned landscape, sky-scapes and shipping.
This selection of works offers haunting and otherworldly depictions of the otherwise overlooked or banal scenarios of our everyday life.
