Setting the Scene of 100 Years of John Rigby

6th - 29th August

Red Hill Gallery

Red Hill Gallery is delighted to present ‘Setting the Scene for 100 Years of John Rigby‘. This exhibition will focus on the artist’s paintings with Queensland landscapes and scenes as their subject. Rigby draws inspirations from nature whether innate or human and describes his interpretation of this as a “poetic reality”. His work makes visual references to the Fauvist movement characterised by a high chroma palette and fierce brushstrokes that was prominent in the early 20th century. In the subject of landscapes, particularly those in Australia, Rigby professes that the strong colours are no exaggeration. Colour continued to be a defining feature in his work and has become his oeuvre. This exhibition is a preview of a later retrospective exhibition, ‘100 Years for John Rigby’ in February 2022 at Red Hill Gallery.
