Paintings you probably haven’t seen
Featuring a selection of paintings executed between 2000 and 2017 largely from the artist’s private collection. As such, many of these works reflect Ken’s personal relationships with those closest to him, for example the large Judy canvas and the four quirky dog portraits and his immediate surroundings, primarily his home on Sydney’s Chinaman’s Beach. All of the paintings reveal Ken’s love of colour and of life. Ken Done’s first solo exhibition was held in Sydney in 1980. Since then, he has held over 50 one-man shows, including major exhibitions in Australia, Europe, Japan and the USA. His work has been described as the most original style to come out of Australia, and his paintings are in collections throughout the world.
