Times like these: the self portraits of Rick Amor

Rick Amor in the Studio Photography by Gavin Fry 2008
27 February – 2 May 2010

An Australian Rembrandt? Across his 40 year career Rick Amor has made dozens of self portraits in every medium. This exhibition brings together, for the first time, Amor’s opus of self discovery as a painter, draughtsman and printmaker. From his earliest teenage efforts to works of the present day, this exhibition showcases the intensity and often brutal honesty of Amor’s journey through the best and worst of times.
