Richard Randall Gallery
Exhibition of Gordon Hanley’s “Drawings in 24ct Gold and Silver”
You will have a rare opportunity to see an exhibit by one of the hottest properties in world art this year.
Brisbane artist Gordon Hanley, Australia’s only Living Master of Art, will exhibit 37 pieces in Mt Cootha Botanical Garden from August 6-13. All pieces will be for sale, with prices ranging from $2250 to $45,000.
Hanley has been a member of Jindalee Rotary for 10 years and 10 per cent from all sales will go to support Australian Rotary Health.
A scientist before art took over, Hanley used his skills to reinvent metalpoint art – a technique originally used Leonardo Da Vinci and other Renaissance artists such as Raphael and Michaelangelo, but which had been had been lost to the world since the mid 1500s.
Working on specially prepared paper and using a stylus with a pure gold or silver ingot, he creates incredibly detailed pieces which feature quite mesmerising use of shade and light.
It’s no exaggeration to say art galleries all over the world are clamouring to display his works.
In 2014 the highly respected Art Renewal Centre of the United States, the largest art centre in the world, immediately named him a Living Master. This very rare accolade goes to “one who has the rare talent, experience and expertise to create great humanistic works of art that are seemingly executed with effortless perfection”.
With such demand for his pieces, it is highly unlikely he will get the opportunity to exhibit such a large body of drawings in his home town again.
