Sidney Nolan Illuminations

The Sidney Nolan Centenary runs throughout 2017.

Illuminations was influenced by the work of nineteenth century French Symbolist poet Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891).

Nolan was a visual mythmaker, an artist whose innovative and powerful paintings of the Australian experience have changed the ways we see ourselves. Forever the innovator, in the 1980s Nolan began experimenting with spray can paint, which enabled him to blend colours on the canvas to create layer upon layer of paint.
