Richard Dunlop: A Northern Survey


Brisbane-born Richard Dunlop’s much admired poetic interpretations of the landscape as a living, ever-changing force are exhibited together for the first time in A Northern Survey at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery.

Themes of psychological shifts associated with seasonal and climatic change are evident in ambitiously-scaled paintings addressing aspects of life relevant to the North - the fecund vegetation, the remnants of iron ore mining, the theatre of a shark catch, depictions of elaborately entangled rainforests in heightened colour, and evidence of tiny rural communities flying over Papua New Guinea.
