23 Jul - 28 Sep 2010

Robert Hannaford is one of South Australia’s best-known and critically acclaimed living artists and one of the nation’s finest portrait painters. In a professional career spanning over thirty five years he has undertaken numerous private portrait and significant public commissions. His practice extends across a broad range of genres including; landscape, the human figure, nature studies and still life, in a diversity of media; oil painting, ink, pencil and charcoal sketching, watercolour and sculpture.

In all his work Hannaford demonstrates not only a superb mastery of realist technique but also a fascination with the act of looking at the world around him. In the artist’s mind, all things, from the most distant view to the smallest of objects, have remained since childhood, sources of everlasting delight. ‘I wanted to draw what I saw from the first time I was a lad’, he once said, ‘What I saw fascinated me. . . I still experience the enthusiasm and excitement for painting and nature I felt as a child.’

Robert Hannaford: Open Studio takes the viewer behind the scenes and into the artist’s studio. For the artist his studio is a physical space, the ‘engine room’ in which works of art are produced. It is also a personal space, a way of imagining, thinking and working, inspired by the great studio traditions of western art.

Drawn almost entirely from the artist’s personal collection and all corners of his studio, this exhibition incorporates rarely or never-exhibited work, including sketch books, sculptures, landscape, portrait and figure studies, and finished paintings, to give unique insights into the artist’s practice.
