Born in the industrial suburb of Carrington, William Rose held his first exhibition in Newcastle in 1954 and organised the seminal exhibition Directions 1 with John Olsen, John Passmore, Eric Smith and Robert Klippel in 1956. Rose’s drawings and paintings are relentless and disciplined pursuits in the composition of abstract space. Included in the exhibition are works from the artist’s estate.
