Artist & curator, after Gainsborough

2006 oil and watercolour on linen 168 x 290 cm Archibald Prize 2006 Artist and curator is a portrait of the artist Rodney Pople and Sydney-based curator Felicity Fenner. The painting takes its inspiration from Gainsborough’s famous portrayal of Mr and Mrs Andrews (c1750). “In its theatrical formality, my painting pays homage to Gainsborough while making irreverent reference to Sydney’s obsessions with real estate."
