Artist: Mac Betts
Location: perth
7 - 29 MAY, PERTH CITY. Official Opening Sunday 15 May 2-4pm. Exhibition to be opened by Michael Betts. Mac Betts was a lyrical abstractionist with an uncanny ability to capture the essence of light on the Western Australian landscape. He is recognised as “the artists’ artist”, and was greatly admired by his peers. Born in London, Mac lived and worked in Nigeria, spending time in Morocco, Spain, Italy and France before he migrated to Western Australia in 1970. The vastness and light of the north-west were his continued influence right up to his death at the age of 78 in 20 10. His work is held by National Gallery of Australia, major state collections and important public and private collections too numerous to mention.
