Paul Ryan: South Pacific

February 6, 2020 - February 22, 2020

Paul Ryan, Banks and Florilegium, 2019. Oil on linen, 138 x 122cm. Courtesy: the artist and Nanda\Hobbs, Sydney.

Nanda\Hobbs presents South Pacific – an ode to the history of the land and seascape that artist Paul Ryan‘s soul inhabits. The focus in this exhibition is Sir Joseph Banks – cast as the archetypal Dandy whose grand tour of the unknown made himself and Captain James Cook eternally famous. Ryan draws on the aesthetics of Dandyism but points to the importance and enormity of Banks’ (self-funded) scientific achievements which are of continued interest to our post-colonial contemporary world.

 

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 6 February 2020
