Edwin Revisited

I had the pleasure of attending the opening of Edwin Wilson’s latest (last, according to Edwin!) solo exhibition, Mullumbimby Revisited. The show was opened by SMH art critic John McDonald, who gave some really interesting perspectives.

One thing is for sure – it will definitely be his last exhibition at Artarmon Galleries – the building is up for sale. It’s played host to a long list of great artists over its 55 years in operation. The building itself is a bit of a time-warp – worth getting along to see it.

Not to mention Edwin’s paintings: about 70 works in total, amounting to a retrospective of sorts.

It seems a little hard to believe that I recently spent two hours with Edwin Wilson, septuagenarian painter and poet, talking at length about his life and art, wholly unaware that he carried with him a terminal cancer diagnosis.
