Icons: Australian art

As stewards of one-of-a-kind collection, featuring work by some of Australia’s most significant artists, Hamilton Gallery is honoured to present this carefully curated collection exhibition. 

Featuring landscapes, people and stories, Icons: Australian Art invites you to consider visual narratives of ‘Australia’. 

From archetypal Australian scenes of red dirt and gum trees to vibrant coastal vistas, works unearth pockets of Australia that have a familiarity that speaks to the soul.  

The works show the artists’ sensitivity to this country, portraying scenes that only those with intimate knowledge of Australia can achieve.  

Icons: Australian Art unashamedly champions works by artists who have created enduring creative responses to this captivating place. 

Audiences are invited to contemplate their own defining narrative of Australia whilst soaking up profoundly unique perspectives in this carefully curated collection. 

The gallery’s latest acquisition, Eugene von Guérard’s expertly rendered Mount Arapiles towards the Grampians hangs alongside more abstract works like Sidney Nolan’s Crucifixion, one of his last and most important works. 

The works show the artists’ sensitivity to this country, portraying scenes that only those with intimate knowledge of Australia can achieve.  

Areyonga James Range by Arrente artist, Albert Namatjira the first Aboriginal artist to paint and exhibit professionally in a Western style, hangs alongside In The Wonoka Country by one of Australia’s most recognised artists, Sir Hans Heysen OBE.
