Rodney Pople: Shell Shocked

May 14 - June 2

Rodney Pople: Returned Soldier, 2018 Egg tempera on linen, 204 x 284cm. Courtesy: the artist and Austalian Galleries, Sydney.

Australian artist Rodney Pople’s latest exhibition brutally examines the ANZAC legend and how it has been appropriated by politicians and others to achieve their own agendas.

The artist says: “Shell Shocked is my way of putting the ANZAC story back in perspective, of pulling back the curtains of the ANZAC altarpiece to reveal the hypocrisy and cunning political manoeuvres that led to so many deaths. It is a way of remembering the sacrifices and the fallen in the context of truth rather than myth.”

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Tuesday 14 May 2019
