RHYS LEE EXHIBITION ‘WHISTLE WORLD’ PREVIEWED IN VAULT ART MAGAZINE

August 10, 2018

Queensland College of Art graduate Rhys Lee’s latest exhibition at Nicholas Thompson Gallery follows on from a sprawling exhibition he staged there in 2017, entitled 10 Paintings and 100 Drawings. This 2018 iteration is considerably smaller in scale. Whistle Work is made up of only nine medium to large paintings, but it takes off from where the artist left off.

SUZANNE ARCHER IN JOHN MCDONALD’S REVIEW OF RAW WEDDERBURN IN THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

July 10, 2018

Survey of work from one of Sydney’s most notable artists’ colony By John McDonald There is no fixed definition of an “artists’ colony” although there are numerous examples spread across the globe. Some are run like businesses, others are no more than clusters of like-minded bohemians. The prototype of the modern artists’ colony is probably Worpswede​, 28 kilometres from Bremen in northern Germany, which has been a haven for creative types since the 1880s. Australia’s best established example is Montsalvat​ on the outskirts of Melbourne, started by Justus Jorgensen in 1934. Second in line is Dunmoochin​, at Cottles Bridge, 50 kilometres…
